Tomatoes and tomato sauce are not cheap for me. Sometimes I buy canned tomatoes and do my own blending or a can of tomato sauce and add my own spices. I can't tell you the last time I bought a pre-made sauce. Never in this city- I can tell you that!
I dug out my bill from yesterday to check the price. I bought two cans of tomato sauce at $1.99 each- so this month we'll have two tomato meals. Probably something chili-ish with tortilla chips. The regular price was $2.49 each. It is a can that holds almost 2 3/4 cups.
