Well there was a heck of a lot of variety this week in the reclaimed food boxes we picked up from Mr. Produce Guy. Lot’s of melons, lettuce and miscellany for the chickens, and plenty of good stuff for us.
Bananas. I don’t think a week has gone by in the last few months where there hasn’t been a boatload of rips bananas waiting for us. It’s a good thing we like making smoothies and baking banana bread around here. 😉
And lemons? Heck ya I’ll take them. I have a lemon cookie recipe I’ve been wanting to try.
Here’s what I ended up keeping for my family this week. Do you see all those apples and oranges? Guess who’s making an apple pie for Thanksgiving? And cinnamon apple chips are on the menu this week too.
So much fruit, so little time. 🙂
Have you tried asking your local grocer for their “expired” fruits and vegetables yet?
Mavis wants to know.
Would you like to see what else we have brought home over the past year?
If you have just stumbled upon this series and are wondering how I got all this food for free, you’ll want to read this story first.
