We have spats of making our own bread and then as much time again eating what we call “Cheapy Harry” bread. The latter is OK…………ish, well I must admit, it’s shocking if you read the ingredients. Our bread has, wheat flour, salt, yeast, water and a smidge of margarine or olive oil. It’s a bung it in, get on with marking year 11’s mock exam papers and come back when it beeps. It’s just the right gadget for a busy working woman……………..OK! More confessions! Dearly Beloved learned to do this and now he makes the bread.
It was such as treat today to have reduced fat and price cheese and homemade chutney sandwiches, made with Dearly Beloved’s bread. It costs pennies but beats the local bakers easily. He’s a man of many talents and he’s on a Frugal mission at the moment. This week alone he has, dissected the Dyson in readiness for the organ donation when we get the deceased Dyson to take its heart out for transplant, he’s screwed the sofa back together and now he’s made the bread.
I often get lovely comments on my blog, where people don’t get the support from their families even though they want to save money and the planet themselves. I can’t imagine struggling against a tide of opposition and we are truly team frugal when it comes to not only saving money, but doing our bit for this wonderful planet of ours. Even the bread machine is frugal. Our neighbour from Plymouth, when we used to live there, gave it to me. It was given to her as a present and she never used it. It also used as lot less energy than switching the oven on. Bread of heaven in my heavenly frugal home.
