July's Cheapest Fruits and Vegetables

How were June's Cheapest Fruits and Vegetables?  We made some yummy 4th of July Sparklers as well as a delicious roasted corn salad.  Both were fantastic.  Plus Noah requested a cantaloupe that was super yummy with vanilla ice cream.  That's one of my favorite summer treats.  Plus taco salad has become a mainstay on our menu each week.  At least once a week.  Biggest bonus: my 4 and 2 year olds both LOVE taco salad.

July's Cheapest Fruits and Vegetables:
summer squash
green beans

I still want to try out the shaved ice that I didn't get to last month.  Mostly I look at this list and just think about all the yummy FRESH fruit we can be eating: pink lemonade served with berries, fresh fruit and ice cream, cheesecake pudding and fruit.

We've also found this Tomato Basil Chicken Salad to be a mainstay in our menus and it's perfect for this time of year.  Cucumbers and tomatoes are both in season making it even better timing.

Hope this gives you some ideas of how to incorporate more fruits and veggies in your diet this month.  What are you looking forward to eating?
