Alternative food sources, and a freebie
My impromptu, organic farmer stand opened again this past Sunday, and as luck would have it, I was to be in the area. DD had asked me to get some Butternut squash to roast. $3. While there, my farmer friend tossed in a cuke and a tomato-this Sunday's freebies.
While I continue to buy 4 doz organic, free range eggs from my above farmer (used as bfst sides once a week), I turn to cheap eggs in cooking. I noted that while recently DT returned to 8 count pkgs, they are once again down to 6 count. $2/doz med eggs vs $2.69 large at Aldi's.I compare whenever I buy. I learned years ago that if the price is 12 cents or less, the heavier eggs are the bargain. Here, in this scenario, the med eggs are. I got 3 doz of them as DT has only sporadically sold eggs since the egg shortage.
