Craker from groceries and cheese from work
Sometimes, the chef at work leaves leftovers from lunch out on the counter and we can have it as a snack. Today, there was a plate of cheeses and charcuterie for us to pilfer, so around 4:30 pm, I grabbed some in a take-away dish before they threw it away in the garbage. We can also buy full dishes for a few bucks when there are leftovers.
Yellow beans "poutine" made from scratch - from groceries I had

Pesto is delicious on pasta, baked potatoes and roasted veggies. But ready-made pesto is expensive and can be so salty, you could use it to de-ice your driveway. Since pesto freezes well, take advantage of August’s bounty of fresh herbs to whip up a batch and stick your thumb to The Man. Just portion it in small freezer bags or ice cube trays for later use.
