As noted in my previous post, this years freezer strategy is two fold: buy in bulk, and buy it all at one time. And once again it seems to have worked well. This week I took Swiss Chard off my to-buy list. When I asked "do you give a discount if I buy a lot?" the response was "yes, I can do 2 for $10". So I took $20 worth. Cleaned, chopped, steamed, and then into freezer bags. I'll have Swiss Chard for quiche and soups all winter long. From the rest of the season any that I buy will be for immediate consumption. It's efficient and seems to stretch the dollar well.
What's your favorite frugal farmer's market tip?
Thursday's purchases -- from fresh berries to cilantro to greens and of course the pain au chocolat (divided three ways between the kids and I)
