Growing Money Day 10: Another Fast, Cheap, Nutritious Recipe

Then came tomatoes... sliced, sauced,  chopped on pesto.  Eating food that is "in season" is another great key to living well for less.  There are lots of calendars online that you can use to find out what it being harvested in your area at any time of the year.  I like the one at Georgia Organics.

This is the time of year to find good tomatoes.  None yet on our patio plant, but seasonally available and delish and because they are in season, they should be affordable.

Tomatoes are a super food.  Eating them makes you healthier and anything that makes you healthier saves you money.  Multi-tasking with dinner!

This recipe came from the pizza place in the Inlet Square Mall in Murrells Inlet, SC.  Even though it is crazy-easy to make, I bought it a lot when I was too crazy-busy to wash a cutting board.  Hats off to the guys there who came up with it!

Even tomato haters sometimes will eat it.  They are camouflaged...

Tomato Cucumber Salad

Cube equal parts cucumbers and tomatoes.
Drizzle with ranch dressing.


Grind a ton of cracked pepper on top.
Sprinkle with black olives.

Eat it as a veggie meal or side.
Makes a great veggie wrap too!
Mix in bow tie pasta if you want to make it an entrée!
