Minus the peppers the tomatoes look good...

The bell pepper alone would likely cost more then 2.35...lol

But we have no cheap source of produce, the local markets all charge a price premium over the grocery stores.

Around this time of year in 1975 I bought a pepper in Oaxaca that when I sliced into it the vapour that came off immediately raised blisters on my lips and eyelids, you would have dropped like a rock. A piece about 3/8 - 1/2" square would flavour a pan of food.
Edit: I assumed from your post that you don't like peppers, but how can that be when you like Mexican food?

And that's how I stopped biting my nails. :-)

I always get mild Mexican dished without peppers... Peppers/onions upset my stomach so on the list of things I don't eat.


Bell peppers taste fine, they just cause stomach discomfort....

cheap as onions or potatoes is roasted garlic (olive oil in foil), when cooked add to onions & mashed potatoes, or down them with your favourite brew

Or, just the roasted garlic by itself on a sandwich, top with lettuce

On onions, any which way as Bristol pointed out, boiled onions, even dried onions, or frizzy shredded deep fried onions (not battered)

Curry onions by themselves or with any other veg thrown in.... potatoes, zucchini etc

After our trip to the fruit stand my neighbour dug up a double handfull of little new potatoes for me so I'm making potato salad right now, using the small red sweet pepper, one of the hot little yellow ones, and lots of chopped green onions (also boiled eggs, garlic, etc etc). I'll coat the big pepper with olive oil and cook it on the bbq then split it and use half as a boat to hold the potato salad.

Never make peach pie since peaches a small fortune, but I make apple pie every so often, nothing like a home baked pie.

We grow our own strawberries and rhubarb - a terrific pie combination
