Frugal Day 12: Inexpensive Harvest

One of the simple pleasures of summer and fall is inexpensive produce. The only problem is what to do with it all once it’s bought and sitting in your kitchen.

There are still more tomatoes in the box to keep me busy for another evening. My $5 purchase will keep me in tomatoes throughout the winter – how frugal is that – I love it!
