Look What $52.00 Will Buy These Days!

I got all of these groceries for $$52.00.....a whole blueberry pie in the white box......can you see the carton of eggs by the pie.....a whole pineapple, sweet potatoes, lemons, pears, apples, lettuce, cabbage, 4 steaks, a big bag of chicken breasts, a big bag of chicken strips, French fries, rice, pancake mix, tortillas, ground meat, carrots, peppers, onions, a pizza, a bag of potatoes, a carton of milk, cheese, a canteloupe, BBQ Beef, weiners, a can of peaches & more....amazing!

One of the area churches sponsors a program called, Angel Food, a food co-op for any community members who would like to pool their money & buy food at wholesale prices. The food is delivered once a month.....it is on a sign up & pay for ahead of time basis. You can buy as many shares as you want......believe me.....I am signed up & paid for next month......I am hooked!

Please, look around in your community for food co-ops sponsored by local churches. You will welcome you to participate, & you can stretch those $$$ this way.

We Know Cookbook Author!

When Barb Proctor writes a new book, it makes me hungry!
I just received her latest collection of recipes,
Favorite Foods From Finney's and Friends II
A collection of 600 plus recipes gathered by Barbara Proctor.
These are Barb's recipes as well as her Mom, Grandma & friends.
I cannot wait to try Grandma's Lemon Pie on pg 207...it's a country beauty!
Barb has graciously given us a complimentary Soup & Salad recipe from the book. It sounds yummy & springy fresh to me......what a great pot luck dish or a a picnic pleaser.
Alumni Pasta Salad
16 oz. Pkg. Spiral pasta, cooked
3/4 cup green onion, chopped
1/2 cup radishes, sliced
1 small cucumber, peeled and chopped
1/4 cup grated carrot
2 cups broccoli, broken in small pieces
2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes
1 cup sliced black olives, optional
1/2 bottle Ranch dressing
1 tsp. Dill weed.
Cook pasta & let cool slightly. Add veggies, dressing & dill weed. Mix all together & refrigerate.
You can add any fresh vegetables that you like....& you can add ham. If salad is dry, add more dressing.
Barb says that this is the best pasta salad she has ever eaten.
