It's spring time, sunshine!

Let's talk produce. We all watch the prices in the produce section rise and fall with the change of the seasons. It is good to be mindful of the freshest finds for your fridge. Do you take advantage of the opportunities for inexpensive avocado? Or find sweet onions from local vendors at smart prices? Have you ever grilled peaches or pineapple as a side for your grilled chicken or burgers? Keep your eye out for these fruits and veggies this spring to add fresh flare to your spring dishes at a reasonable price! Remember, everything we eat matters. These are some delicious choices for you and your family.
