Farmer's Market Trip 7/19/08.

I got a lot of goodies this week:

Green peppers (6)..........$2.00
Tomatoes (6)...................$2.00
Scallions (2 bunch)..........$1.00
Basil (2 bunches).............$2.50
Peas (1 pint)....................$2.00
Cucumbers (4).................$1.00
Baby plums (14)..............$2.00
Cherries (1 pint)................$2.50
Baby peaches (10)............ $2.00
Lemons (3)...................... $1.00
Zucchini (4)......................$1.00

Total = $19.00

I'm going to make some pesto with the basil!! I'm real excited to do my own.



And then there was this beauty!!! It's a little plant with hot peppers all over. They are very small, like 2-3 inches long. They start out green which is mild, then they turn purple which is medium and if you keep them going they turn red which is hot. I used a couple of the red in my salsa and OOooh boy are they hot. This plant cost me $5.00 and the pepper will keep growing!!

How long will that grocery list cost? I'm on a super budget right now and any recipe suggestions would be much appreciated.

Hiya Dagny.

I'd have to say that it pretty much lasts us a week. That's 2 adults and 1 toddler. I do pick up a couple of fruits and veggies at the grocery store too.

Most times, I make a simple salad with them. Or I'll pack cut up veggies for lunch. They are wonderful for snacks.

I do plan to post more recipes.. but you're welcome to email me with your email address and I can send you some.
