Thank you all for the fantastic response to yesterday’s post, Homemade Substitutes for Grocery Staples. It definitely showed that this Eat Well, Spend Less series is coming at a good time for many of you.
Remember, the list of pantry staples to make from scratch is posted for inspiration, not assignment! A few commenters felt overwhelmed by the enormity of the task, but the idea is to start small. Baby steps all the way.
Can I just share one response? I so loved what reader and friend, Julie, commented on the post:
“Such a brilliant topic. This is the meaning of true convenience food – not the availability of prepared foods at every corner store! True convenience is the skill to make it yourself.“
Isn’t that so true.
