Just a few quick links—my parents are flying up from Florida today for a short visit so I'm busy (excitedly) tidying up the apartment.

Shredded pork shoulder is a great way to feed a big crowd cheaply. The Kitchn has a helpful step-by-step tutorial on how to do it. [via the Kitchn]

Deb's beef empanadas look like perfect dinner party fare--you could also make mini versions, for appetizers. [via Smitten Kitchen]

Two Times food writers create dinners for six people under $50. Frank Bruni acts as if this is an impossible feat, but clearly it's not that hard when you're used to working with a budget. [via NYT]

The newly-redesigned Pithy & Cleaver has a tasty-looking spicy mixed nuts recipe. [via P&C]

Have a great weekend!
