    Frugal Tips:
    ~ I grow tomatoes and freeze them in 1 lb. amounts (= 1 can = ~ 2 tomatoes). I just take them out when needed, run them under hot water to release the skin off them, and pop them in the pot. Sometimes I'll nuke them in the microwave first to break them up a bit...especially if the recipe calls for diced tomatoes.
    ~ I usually get potatoes from friends' gardens. Potatoes are weeds here.
    ~ I buy jumbo onions, chop and freeze in 1 c. amounts.
    ~ I buy beef bouillion in granule form in big containers from Costco...or replace with hm beef stock. One cube = 1 tsp. granules. I just replace the liquid requirement with the same amount of actual stock. I prefer hm stock because it has less salt. If you use it, reduce the amount of liquid accordingly.
    ~ I pick up peanuts in the bulk section of the store.
