Pulling Pork

Posting late today because it took awhile to determine how much today's lunch cost. I had leftover pork and coleslaw, so I decided to buy kaiser rolls and make a Carolina style pulled pork sandwich for today's lunch. The rolls cost $1.99 for a pack of four (50 cents each) and the pork was $2.99 a pound (a quarter pound is around 75 cents) and the head of cabbage cost 29 cents (five cents worth of cabbage). Plus a few cents worth of mustard and barbecue sauce. Grand total = $1.35. Brown bagging rules.

June 9:
Ate: Pulled Pork Sandwich from home
Cost: $1.35
Remaining Budget: $66.47

According to arithmetic, I should have $66.67 remaining, so I'm only 20 cents short.
