  1. In these tough economic time, I tell myself, “You can have anything you want and THIS is what you want!” and then I buy whatever’s on sale. 🙂 Thanks for your post.

  2. Good, good, good. If I may, from a chef’s perspective dried beans and legumes, instead of the canned beans. Beans just require a little planning to soak. Instead, buy canned tomato products. It’s the one canned item that can be infinitely better than the fresh product available (especially during winter.)
