I have found myself lately trying to stretch my food dollar ever so thinly. Lots of times that means chicken 4 nights in a row. So I have found a renewed sense of artistry in the kitchen to try to make this repetition palatable. Baked, then stir fry, soup then rice salad...
I have also devoted lots of garden space (even among yard plantings) for things that are outrageously priced in my grocery: Herbs, fennel, asian greens, interesting tomatoes, walla wallas and squashes. I also trade with fellow neighbor gardeners (like strawberries for favas).
So I am wondering what you hounds are doing to stretch your food dollar and also if you have any interesting leftover food recipes you might want to share.
