In an unexpected turn of budget this week, we found ourselves with very little to spend on groceries. It happens. Fortunately it's not such a hardship as it might be in wintertime. We have many green thumbed friends and we've benefited recently from their garden largesse. (I know we're very fortunate. :) That fresh produce, together with what we had on hand in the pantry and deep freeze served us very well.
Here's what we ate:
