One of my favorite things about summer (my list is really long) is being able to buy fresh fruits and vegetables at the Amish stands we have on every corner in our town. I would love my own garden. No, let me rephrase that. I would love to reap the rewards of having my own garden...but I really don't want the work. Plus, I'm not a fan of worms and dirt. Yuk.
We've been going through strawberries like crazy. An Amish girl told me yesterday that strawberries will probably only be available until the end of the week. Brady and I planted strawberries from a kit on Mother's Day, and he checks it everyday and there's nothing. It doesn't look like there's going to be anything either, ever. I'm thinking tomorrow when I buy more, I will put a few in his container outside...I wonder if he would fall for that?!
I bought all of these veggies and the strawberries for $9.00....much better than what I would have paid at the grocery store. Speaking of the grocery, I decided to take some coupons along yesterday to the store and see if I could save a few dollars. You know I'm hooked on that coupon show...except they're crazy, and I'm not. Anyway, my bill came to $101.00 and after my discount card and coupons my total was $66.00. I was pretty happy with that. Of course, I didn't get anything for free...but one of these time I will! It's my goal to walk out with one free item! One of these days!
One last thing and then I'm done. I feel like I'm rambling here.
Have you tried this greek salad dressing? It's so good. I usually prefer the creamy dressings like ranch and blue cheese, but I'm trying to find healthier ones. This is my new favorite!
Do you have a garden?
