It’s been a while (approximately 2years) since I’ve bought bread, with the rising prices of food I have opt to return to the things that I know and baking is one of them. Bread prices have changed drastically, the cost went from 89 cents – $1.20 a loaf to between $2.79 - $6.00. It literally became cheaper to buy the flour, butter, baking powder, yeast. This week I baked bread its whole wheat rye with soy and Teff Flour. I also included almonds, raisins and peanuts in one loaf.
Popping Corn From Scratch
I love the traditional way of making popcorn better than the microwaveable stuff. The traditional way allows me to be creative with my flavours of popcorn. There is a banquet of possibilities using a variety of seasonings. Today’s popcorn was garlic paprika, trust me it was magnificent. If I could send you a bowl I would, fear not I ate it all with you in mind….hmmmm
Home Cook Meals & Boycotting The Everyday Eat Out
While I do occasionally go out to a restaurant or two I much prefer to prepare my own meals. The savings are astronomical. Everyday I see people that buy meals, breakfast,$ 6 - $8, plus lunch starting from $8 - $12. If one were to indulge everyday in breakfast and lunch that is a cost of $14 - $26 a day bringing it to a weekly cost to $70.00 - $130.00 per week totalling a monthly expenditure of $280.00 - $520.00. Trust, that is just not something that I can afford to do and frankly I wouldn’t go that route even if I could.
