We'll be eating like royalty all week long for thirteen dollars. We bought those vegetables and fruits for thirteen dollars at a new produce stand we found near our home. And every time we spend $50 at the stand between now and December, we'll get five dollars off, so we're saving our receipts. Using these vegetables and fruits and a few condiments and spices, we'll be eating gourmet meals. Check your local farmer's market or produce stand, they just might have some delicious bargains.
Six sweet potatoes, three mango's, three peaches, four oranges, one purple eggplant, two white eggplant, one large crookneck squash, four small zucchini, and nine Roma tomatoes. Here's some fried eggplant dipped in gluten free crack crumbs and sauteed in butter and olive oil with a side of fresh quartered tomatoes dipped in balsamic vinegar. Quick and easy to make and oh so wonderful.
I could eat this salsa every day, spicy, but not too hot. Papaya salsa made with roasted poblano peppers and fresh cilantro. Can't find papaya, substitute peaches. How about some blue corn chips to go with.
Try fresh pineapple, it's good all by itself; slice it up and enjoy. If you have any recipes to share, please let me know. I like eating a sweet potato for lunch with a dab of butter or slicing squash down the middle and grilling it. Try something new and fresh you might like it. Hope you're having a good weekend. Sunday is drum circle and next week we plan to go to the Tampa Aquarium. I know I'll have lots of inspiration from there. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
