Weekly Shopping Trip

My favorite stores were having some amazing produce deals this week. As summer approaches and the weather gets warmer we rely a lot on fresh produce to feed us because it requires no cooking. And no cooking means I can keep my house cool. (Yeah, we have no air conditioning) Also when warm weather hits we eat lots of salads; green salad, pasta or rice salads, veggies marinated in a homemade balsamic dressing, and then just add bread to finish off the meal. During the winter my cheap meal is soup, during summers it's salads. And living in the climate challenged state of Washington I can easily be serving a winter soup meal and a summer salad meal in the same week.

So weird.

Do you have anyone who reads your blog in Ontario, Canada...?
I think our prices must be MUCH higher in general!
