I was toolin down the frozen isle at the local Grocer just Yesterday lookin at all the purdy packages. You litterally can toss out your stove now , and "wingit" at Walmart. Everything from Pancakes to full meals ready to go . A Microwavers heaven.
We've come so far. But we've lost so much on the Journey. As the masses struggle to stay afloat in this crumbling Economy many are tossing good money away on "conveniences" That are just as easily done at home .
There's absolutely nothing easier to fix at home than pancakes. flip on a burner while you toss an egg into a bowl with a cup of mix, oil and water and you got fresh pancakes . Slickern snot on a , well you get the picture. And the mix is plain ole flour and baking powder. Yet we think nothing of droppin a four dollar bill on a little bag of frozen flapjacks. yeah i know there aint no four dollar bills yet,, just don't get cute, this is my story.
How bout Mac n cheese. Them lil elbow noodles iz dirt cheap if you buy em by their lonesome. But you'd rather spend a half hours wage just so you kin have em in a cute lil box with a hunka cheese stuck on top. Come on now. Better still , you kin toss half dozen eggs in the mixer, and dump in some flour n salt and yu got better tastin noodles then even Grandma usta brag about.
For me, The Corker is cake mixes. Cake mix my,,,,,,,,,,,"Foot" itza box of flour!!~! your gonna still go home in add your eggs n your oil n your water, or milk, and pay some fool Two fifty for the privaledge. COME ON PEOPLE!!~!
I'm a Baker by trade, Always say i've been "makin loaf" for over 40 yrs now. and its true. Usta tell my youngest that she better hope Betty Crocker never dies or she's in real trouble. Thankfully she's taken the initiative to learn and is now a dang good little Cook. But it was nip n tuck there for awhile.
My point is, maybe we need to re-evaluate how we are spending our money. I't maybe takes me all of a minute to whip up pancakes for four. why give that money away for a minutes work? as the economy faulters this is a good way keep the balance A. L. R.
