So without further adu, here's this month's Cheapest Fruits and Vegetables:
If you haven't tried the Spinach Calazone yet, you have to put it on your menu this month. We have it at least twice a month. We love it. We often use frozen spinach, but since it's in season now, I keep thinking how great this would be with fresh spinach.
And if you like raw spinach (we do), try a spinach salad with slivered almonds, dried cranberries, chopped apples, and blueberry pomegranate dressing by Lighthouse. Refreshing and so fall.
I'll be stocking up on cranberries in the coming months and making tons of Cranberry Applesauce. This recipe is incredible and you'll never go back to plain canned cranberry sauce again.
I picked up an acorn squash this week for $.38. Can you believe it? What can you get for $.38? I'll cut that open and stuff it with a savory tomato hamburger filling and bake it. The recipe will be up when I get that one done.
I love sweet potatoes, but without all the marshmallow craziness. Baked, topped with a little butter, a smiggin' of brown sugar, some chopped walnuts or slivered almonds, a little dried cranberries,... yummy twist on the old baked potato bar when served with a green salad.
And how can you go wrong with pumpkins? I have a true love for all things pumpkin: pudding, bread, muffins, lattes, cookies... I'll be posting pumpkin recipes all month. So stay tuned.
