We’ve been purchasing many of our food goods at a local restaurant supply shop, Cash and Carry. They are, thankfully, open to the public.  This has been one of the ways in which we can experiment with trimming the fat from our budget without sacrificing nutrution, or simply to see if it is possible.  With the help of Cash and Carry and buying in bulk flours, we were able to make $5 pizzas the other night.  The crust was a recipe from a friend, homemade, yielding 2 crusts.  The ingredients included about 1 quart of homemade marinara sauce, with parmasean and mozzarella cheese.  Other toppings included shredded chicken, diced tomato, onion, and green peppers.  I thought they looked quite gourmet when we were done!

Food fads, revisited

Food fads are a thing. Every year, it seems, we learn about something else we should or shouldn’t do or eat for so-called optimal health. Milk is in until it isn’t. Alternate kinds of milk are in until they aren’t. We can eat based on our blood types. We can use ancient traditions. We can even get into gastro-molecular inventions (what!?).
