So Much Produce -- So Little Time
My grocery cart is usually mostly full of produce and sometimes I buy a little more than we get around to eating in the week. If I see I'm in danger of losing some of it, I'll cook it up to prevent that.
Saturday, I was looking for rutabagas and a turkey breast specifically because I got hungry reading Leigh's post about said items. They only had about five rutabagas and they were very large. I got one anyway and that thing weighed more than a pound and a half when we checked out. It will take me a while just to cut that sucker up!
I also got a three pound bag of small sweet potatoes for only $2. They are quite small which is good and one will make a nice serving. Tomorrow I'll be baking a pan full of them.
In addition to the items already mentioned, we got two zucchini, four tomatoes, six bananas, a bag of frozen okra, mushrooms and a lemon.
Yesterday we went to another grocery store to purchase more produce not available at the first store. I got romaine, a red pepper, apples, a watermelon and some frozen mixed vegetables because Kroger sent me a coupon for a free bag of frozen veggies. Yes, I do love free.
I just noticed that this is my 500th post. I think I'll celebrate with a couple of small tangerines. :)
