Frugal Friday

Did anyone try some of the recipes from January's Cheapest Fruits and Vegetables? How did they turn out? Did you discover something need that you enjoyed? Share it with us.

Well, here's February's Cheapest Fruits and Vegetables:


Here's your family friendly recipe for the month:
Broccoli Salad

1 bag of Broccoli Slaw (or fresh broccoli)
red onion
crumble fried bacon
sunflower seeds
1 c mayo
2Tbsp white vinegar
1/4 c sugar

Mix your mayo, vinegar and sugar to dress your salad. May increase the sugar to your taste.

There's so many variations of this. I don't like nuts in things so I might add water chestnuts instead for the crunch. Some people prefer pecans. Some recipes call for cherry tomatoes as well. Experiment and see what you like best. But honestly any variation of this salad is fantastic.

Oh, and for a second recipe this month, check out the Lemon Bars I posted last month. Huge family hit. So yummy!

All the fruits listed are fantastic and most contain a ton of vitamin C, perfect for fighting off that winter cold.

I also came acrossed this today and was intrigued:Broiled Grapefruit with Honey, Vanilla, and Cardamon.

And is rhubarb in season? Saw this today as well: A Tale of Rhubarb. I may have to make a Raspberry Rhubarb Cobbler if it is.
