Saving Money
Save money by growing your own sorrel leaves. They only need to be planted once a year and will provide continuous picking. Pick the larger outside leaves first leaving the smaller leaves in the centre to grow.

Grow tomatoes during the warmer months. Preserve the excess by semi drying in the oven then freeze until ready to use. Semi dried tomatoes taste wonderful in this salad.

Buy cans of sandwich tuna in bulk packs. They have a long storage life and make a healthy and nutritious lunch. It is always a good idea to have some go to canned goods in the pantry for when you can’t get to the store and it is far cheaper than eating out.
