On Sale This Week: Strawberries, Cucumbers and Fish

28 February 2013  

Strawberries, Cucumbers and Fish - yes, spring is on the way.

A lot of fish is on sale this week, but there is also a nice price on a boneless pork loin roast at Safeway for $1.99 lb.. In addition, good produce prices are starting to show up. Strawberries at $3.99 for 3 lbs, broccoli and cauliflower for $.99 lb, and lots of colored bell peppers at $1 or less apiece.

While you're thinking of produce, don't forget to also check out fresh and homegrown fruits and veggies. A new place that has opened up recently is the Farm Fresh Market on East Gurley Street. Another nice option is the Winter Farmers Market and Rummage Sale held at Northpoint Expeditionary School (551 First Street, Prescott).

For a quick dessert, slice strawberries, sprinkle with sugar. Refrigerate for at least an hour. Spoon over angel food cake, sponge or butter cake. Top with whipped cream or Cool Whip if desired.

Recently, we held a baby shower for my daughter-in-law. A friend came who brought some snacks, including cucumber sandwiches. They were delicious, and our friend reminded me that there's frequently a vegetarian in the crowd.

Cucumber Sandwiches

8 oz. Cream cheese

2 tsp. ranch salad dressing mix packet

12 slices bread

2-3 medium cucumbers, sliced thin (peeled if desired)

Mix the cream cheese with the ranch dressing mix. Spread the cream cheese over the bread slices, top 6 slices with the cucumbers. Salt lightly. Top with the remaining bread.

Cucumber Salad

3 medium cucumbers, peeled (optional) and sliced thin

1/2 onion, sliced thin

1/2 c. Sour cream

3 Tbs. Vinegar

Mix the sour cream and vinegar in a bowl. Add the cucumber and onion slices. Stir well. Cover and let sit in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours. Garnish with fresh dill if desired.
