Frugal Friday



Can you believe it? I forgot to post the cheapest fruits and veggies last month. What kind of frugal mama am I? :-)

Here is the cheap produce listings for this month:
pineapples
mangoes
zucchini
rhubarb
artichokes
asparagus
spring peas
broccoli
lettuce

I thought really loved summer produce, but I'm seeing some great potential for this month. Here's a few of the ideas roaming around in my head:
Chicken and Artichoke Pasta
Roasted Asparagus
Asian Noodle Salad
Rhubarb Raspberry Crisp (I personally love these and as strawberries are on sale right now, swap them out for the raspberries).

and let's not forget that if you have a little one, Mangoes make great baby food.

For future reference, here's the original Cheapest Fruits and Vegetables Month by Month article.

That Asian Noodle Salad sure looks good!

The cheapest for us are what is growing in our garden: turnips, lettuce, sugar snap peas, swiss chard, spinach, asparagus. Our artichokes are not ready yet.

Our local grocery store is having a very unusual sale on apples right now, for 49 cents a pound. They are very nice looking apples from Washingtom. At this price, I bought 80lbs! We are eating apples and I am making applesauce.
