I thought a few of you might have some ideas for this. Today I made homemade pop tarts. I thought I might save some money making some convenience foods. However, the dough uses so much butter, that I spent more money on the ingredients than if I'd just bought a box of pop tarts or toaster strudels or whatever.
I may nix this particular recipe altogether anyway because I just checked them and it looks like most of the jam leaked out all over the place anyway.
I dont have any advice to offer but I just wanted to say that I totally understand the cost got in your way as we all are looking to keep our cooking/food budget as low as we can, but I love that you are finding ways to not feed your family those processed box foods! I also try very hard to stay away from those foods but the convience is wonderful.
I hope someone has some advice for you because Id love to know as well.
Kierasmom, I think that may be what I end up doing. A friend posted on fb about some bran muffins that her husband likes and swears keep him full all morning. I asked her for the recipe; can't wait to try them out. I made a triple batch of pumpkin oatmeal cookies on Saturday and froze balls of dough. I made them with less sugar to make them a bit healthier and more like a breakfast item. It's so easy to pop them in the oven for 20 minutes and there's no mess!
