I’m not passionate about cooking. I just like to eat.

The Frugal Girl

What I did with yesterday’s Hungry Harvest

The Frugal Girl

My Hungry Harvest yesterday was mostly vegetables. In fact, I think the only fruit was a bag of large apricots and some kiwifruit. This is fine, but I (and probably a lot of people!) find fruit to be a whole lot easier to eat than vegetables.
