Food Costs – 29 July 2008

This morning it was back to our favorite farm market where we found lots of locally grown fruit and vegetables. For only $24.75 we bought corn, red lettuce, sweet onions, cucumbers, green peppers, cabbage, eggplant, zucchini, cantaloupe, and peaches.

The cantaloupe is large enough to be used for two days of fruit smoothies. For breakfast, we’ll blend the following in our Vita-Mix blender: half a cantaloupe, ripe bananas, flaxseeds, and ice. As I’ve mentioned before, we like to play the word game “Boggle” while enjoying our fruit or vegetable smoothies.

For only $3.50 we bought approximately a third of a bushel of peach “seconds” that are in various stages of ripeness and include some bruised ones. We’ll eat some out of hand and freeze others. I also want to try making a peach salad dressing.

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
