We like to eat the veggies fresh from the garden in the summer. It really helps with the grocery budget too. This is a picture of stuffed zucchini rolls. We had so many zucchini we had to seek out new recipes. This one was a big hit with DH!! The second picture is tomato salad made with 5 different kinds of tomatoes to give it a great flavor. Yummy, cheap and healthy!!

Wednesday Freebies, Pictures, Recipes and more.......

This is the mountain of things we picked from the garden last weekend. We preserve some for the winter, eat some fresh and sell some at a little roadside stand at the end of our driveway. I need to make several batches of Zucchini bread this week. I have some promised to friends, for a party and i wanted to add a loaf to a meal I need to deliver for church. August 8th is "National Sneak Zucchini onto your Neighbor's Porch" night. If you live near me....... LOOKOUT!!!

Fresh from the garden, this is the beginning of a great veggie medley steamed on the grill. Add a chicken breast and you have a great meal on the cheap!

This is some of the wild berries we picked that grow on our property. We dry them in the dehydrator and then Dh uses them in his home made suet that he likes to make in late fall. He loves to give the suet to friends and family at Christmas time. We will also save some sunflower seeds and nuts to add to the suet.
