Market finds were frugal as well.
- $1 for three zucchini. Shredded, each will yield a zucchini bread this winter. It pairs wonderfully with an egg dish, and sneaks some veggies into the kids' meals;
- $2.75 for 7 ears of corn. All but one were perfect. Once boiled and consumed, the husks and cob were added to our compost bin, where they will nurture our flower beds next Spring;
- $1 three leeks. Added to chili (made with the remains of last Monday's baked chicken) for a less intense onion flavor.
Great buys. Minimal carbon footprint. And I've got two kids learning their fruits and veggies as well as some of the story on where their food comes from. If frugal living is your desire, farmers' market shopping is a must.
