One key to staying within a food budget is writing a weekly menu plan and sticking to it. The things in the photo were all on my list this week and I was amazed that for under $20.00 I got all this at the U District farmers' market:
4 giant carrots
About 12 sekel pears
What's on your list today? Check out my soup of the week, which includes kale from our own yard and shiitake mushrooms (not included in the photo).
