Domestic work!

For the last few weeks, we've been trying to cut down on money spent on groceries by making things we'd normally buy. For me, the breaking point was realizing a loaf of bread now cost $3.00+, when a *pound* of flour cost only $0.50, roughly.

So in the last two-three weeks I've baked quite a few loaves of bread and started to get back my knowledge of how to do that (I used to bake a fair amount some years ago). And I'm also doing some other similar work; for instance, rather than buy frozen fries, I am now deep-frying about 10 pounds of potatoes which will be frozen for later use. And instead of chips, I made the kids a big bunch of pappadam.

And I'm making cookies, using a recipe HANDED DOWN THROUGH THE SPOOR FAMILY LINE FOR GENERATIONS!!!   (thus the Armstrong icon).
