Cool Re: Grocery Shopping Tips

Save money on vegetables by choosing the kind that's best suited for your recipe. If the veggies are the "star" of your dish, choose the best-looking ones you can find. If they're in a supporting role, as in a soup or casserole, the store-brand canned veggies work just fine! For example, fresh tomatoes are great if you're using them in a salad or slicing them for sandwiches, but canned tomatoes are perfectly fine if you're cooking them in chili or soup.
