Lately I've been buying lots of produce and using it for smoothies and sandwiches. A good shopping trip will only cost me a bit over $10, and most of that will be from the bread and deli meat.

Would it be worth it to start making my own bread as well? Or would regularly buying all the ingredients just cost as much/more than the $2 day old loaves at the bakery?

There's an amazing no-knead bread recipe where you stick some flour, yeast, salt, water into a bin, put it into the fridge, and whenever you want bread you tear off a hunk, let it rise for 20 minutes, then stick it into the oven. Costs very little if you get yeast and flour in bulk.

Hint: putting spices into ground (beef/pork/chicken) in the fridge for a night makes your own delicious sausage.

Huh, looks like I touched off a shitshow! By "you can make your own sausage" I meant that, instead of buying "Italian sausage" that looks identical to ground meat in the supermarket, you can instead buy the ground meat (which is likely cheaper) and then put spices in yourself.

Yes, if you want the casing, you'll need equipment or just buy premade sausages, and if you feel loose sausage and ground meat + spices are vastly, incredibly different, then whatever floats your boat I guess.

edit: realizing this is kinda snarky, if there truly is a huge difference, by all means, I'm curious.

Seasoned ground meat

Not to say that supermarket labeling inherently makes any sense at all, but are you essentially saying that supermarket labeling seasoned ground meat as "italian sausage" or somesuch is completely false and makes no sense at all?

What about breakfast sausage patties, they do not deserve the label sausage in any way?

As a frequent eater of grapes, I am not sure I understand the freezing part either, unless I was saving them for smoothies. Do you just suck on them till they thaw in your mouth, and then eat.

That sounds lovely actually. I should try that! Little ice cubes that turn into delicious grapes.

Ah, ok. Main difference I noticed between east coast and west coast is that meat prices are cray in the west. Not even costco has it that low. Gonna have to keep an eye out when I move back

You can get whole chickens for that price on the east coast (suburbs of boston). Gotta pay attention to stop n shop's weekly deals and such, but it comes up sometimes.

Oh yeah, I know, I lived in Boston for 13 years. Which is why when I moved to the bay area and saw regular chicken for like, what super mondo organic gold fed chicken would go for on the east coast I was like $8/lb? Get the gently caress outta heah

Cheapass veggies and fruit year round evens that out, though.

...hoo boy, that's why I shouldn't post while tired. I read your post in opposite land and thought you were having trouble finding cheap chicken on the east coast.

Good luck, and stay off BART right now.

Just make a huge batch of chili and eat a small bowl of it in the morning. Or make a chili omelette.

Really, any protein based non-breakfast food goes great as breakfast, with an egg. Or without, if you really don't want eggs.

I moved to a place where the farmer's market is actually more expensive than the supermarket. They make in-season stuff MORE expensive until it's nearly rotten, you have to pay more because it's better you see?

I dearly miss my giant piles of awesome veg, but in exchange I get to live within a 15 minute walk of one Chinese, one Thai, one Korean and one Moroccan supermarket. Life is flavourful in a different way now!

Wait there are places where farmer's markets are cheaper than supermarkets??

For in-season stuff I find this to be true more often than not. At least for standard vegetables.

Yeah. When I lived in a primarily agricultural community, the farmer's markets were cheap as hell: go buy a 50 lb bag of unwashed, unsorted potatoes from the Hutterites for like $3. Now I live in a primarily bureaucratic city, and they're ridiculously expensive and populated by "artisanal" products.

I mean, to be fair, stuff doesn't grow in the northeast yet so there was literally two tiny stands of grown things and everything else was, as you said, expensive artisanal products. But even during prime growing season, everything is expensive, definitely moreso than grocery stores.

its no big deal posted:

1 cup milk
4 bags chai/spice black tea
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup+ apple sauce/oil/butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar

Steep the team bags in the hot milk for 5 minutes, then remove. Reserve 2 Tbsp steeped milk for glaze. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Create well in middle. Pour in hot milk, vanilla and apple sauce. Mix well. Pour into greased loaf pan and bake at 350 F for 45-60 minutes.

When loaf is almost cool on wire rack, mix leftover milk with powdered sugar and leave for 5 minutes before pouring over cool loaf.

Tried this with apple sauce and it came out super duper dense; any idea what might have gone wrong?

Going to the grocer after St Patty's day, you can often find corned beef briskets for closeout prices. Buy a couple and freeze them.

I made a great carbonara last night, using bacon and some corned beef. Wish I'd had some chives though.

You're using that weird version of "couple" that means "ten", right?

I made a big pot of chili because it's like $3 a serving, but I forgot to drain the beef after cooking it, so I ended up with super super greasy chili.

And now I'm eating it all out of principal

It's so good

gently caress draining beef for chili. All that fat is all flavor, baby.

No seriously gently caress draining it. Maybe if you have like 60% or something but still.
