I keep my eyes open for sales on these three canned items:
- mandarin oranges
- pineapple chunks
- mixed tropical fruit (don't buy the kind with bananas - canned bananas are nasty!)
My additional tip is to save the juice. You can use it to replace the liquid in muffins, you can just drink it (this is a real treat to the Littles who never get juice, mean mama that I am), or you can use it to sweeten your iced tea.
I love to make special desserts, but sometimes time and circumstances make something simple the best option.
Have a lovely weekend!
