Oh my. It's gone. The fifty pound bag of flour I bought two months ago, just before the snow came. Wow, that shows how much baking I do.
This pace of life with food preparation feels good. I rarely need to go to the grocery store.
We stretch our visits every 2-3 weeks (fresh fruits/veggies the first week; canned/frozen fruits/veggies the 2nd week). Less shopping trips in and of itself gives me extra hours each week with my babies. Making sure we're home to make yogurt or bread once a week gives us the
down time we need as a family. Home is where we want to be, we love
this farmhouse so.
I've been asked a time or two how I have time to make all of our bread
from scratch. My view? A chunk of time every week to be home, to get
our hands dirty, smell the baking bread, sample while it's still warm,
be together as a family...I make time for all of that. Life's too busy not to.
Buying bulk, making from scratch, carving out a chunk of time each week to make bread (recipe here), give it a go. Perhaps you'll enjoy it too.
