Free Frugal Food!

With Spring here, I'm hoping to spend less and less money in the produce department, particularly on greens.  Today, I decided to forage the yard for whatever was edible.

I found dandelion greens, chives and lovage!  

So, I raided the fridge for grape tomatoes, leftover pickled banana peppers, green olives, shredded carrot and shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese.
I added a little salt and drizzle of olive oil.

Stuffed a pita (actually had enough for two) and enjoyed a fine, flavorful lunch!

We also did some baking today.  Here, my second son is mixing up oatmeal raisin cookies.

I had bananas going soft and black and apples past their prime and getting icky spots.
So, I made a vanilla, cardamom and nutmeg banana bread and a crumb top apple pie.
(Yes, that is my stove top.  I only have a 20" stove/oven unit).
