Today I'm making New England Pot Roast in the crock pot. It has lots of horseradish (the heat cooks out and you're left with a wonderful savory-ness). It's a very cold day (about 7 F) and I love smelling something good from the kitchen all day.

First, one goes to the City of Buffalo (many states have one of their own) and step outside on a cool and crisp night. Buffalo Chilly.

Second, one rounds up a likely candidate (generally one that isn't too cranky) and pushes it into a semi frozen river (though creeks and lakes may be substituted, for convenience). Buffalo Chilly. And wet.



I just used a sort of facsimile, namely ground bison, and put it in a pot of tomato sauce (and two small cans of petite diced tomatoes) with like 3 different kinds of beans (light and dark red kidney beans and some pinto beans) and went about seasoning the hell out of it, so to speak. Since the seasoning is something I excel at, I can't divulge all that went into it, for seasons, BUT I did use 3 packets of chili seasoning mix and one onion soup mix packet. (And not one sprinkle of cayenne.)

I am drinking Tevana's Strawberry Rose Champagne Oolong.

It is delicious. I got a 1/2 lb on sale (btw, 1/2 lb is about 2 cups of the stuff--2 cups dried will make probably 5 or 6 pots of tea, and maybe 20 cups of tea to drink), 75% off (actually, hubby bought it for me). If I'd paid regular price, it would have cost $55. Fifty five DOLLARS for TWO CUPS of TEA. WTF. As it was, at 75% off, it was about $15 with tax, which is four times what I normally pay for tea. But, its one of my favorite teas.

I'm about to cook and eat some stir-fry veggies and egg noodles.

With sauce out of a packet.

Ick.

We're interstate for two week's because of hubby's surgery... staying in an apartment in a hotel...

I've never put so much pre-packaged food in my trolley in my life. Jars and packets of simmer sauces and stir-fry sauces... although they call them 'flavour-bases' nowdays. Which makes it so much better.

And still we spent $250 on two and a half week's worth of groceries (and toiletries). I almost died. We don't spend that much at home.

How is it that people think that pre-packaged food is CHEAPER than making food from scratch? The mind boggles.

So now I'm off to make Honey, Garlic and Soy stir-fry... with no honey or soy sauce or kechap manis in sight.

At least the packet has the Heart Foundation tick of approval. Right?

thalassa
24 Jan 2014, 04:23
right now, I'm drinking a smoothie--kale, mango, peach, carrot, banana, apple, and pineapple.




How is it that people think that pre-packaged food is CHEAPER than making food from scratch? The mind boggles.


Not sure how it is in Australia, but...it depends on the pre-packaged food. For example...for $2, I can get a box of velveeta mac'n'cheese (or Kraft mac'n'cheese for $1, or the store knock off brand for $0.50)...but, I could also *maybe* pick up that same box of velveeta mac'n'cheese for $1.50 at the "dollar store" (depends on if they have it in stock or not), or their knock-off brand for $1. But, buying a brick of velveeta is $3 (which admittely will make you several pots of mac'n'cheese), the noodles are about $1-2.50 a box (depending on the brand)...if you use real cheese, a brick of store brand is about $7, then you need butter ($2-3 for a box of 4 sticks), milk ($3-4). Most of those things--cheese, milk, butter, you can (and likely will) use for other meals...but the box of mac'n'cheese is still cheaper than buying the mac and the cheese separately.

But the premade stir-frys and such...those are like $3-8 dollars, depending on the brand here...just the meat would cost you about $2-3 for a cheap cut...then the veggies...a bag of mixed frozen veggies can be anywhere from $2-5 (buying similar fresh veggies to prepare would proly cost you about $10), depending on the brand, and then $3 for Panda Express's sauce, or $2 for a bottle of teriyaki or soy sauce...not to mention ginger, garlic, etc. Making it yourself is only really cost effective if you routinely have that other stuff.

It used to be, that our gov't subsidised food that people ate...now we subsidise feed corn and soybeans, which people turn into ingredients to be put into food-like substances. So...unless you are buying in bulk and have the time and storage space, a bag of chips is cheaper than a potato and kool-aid is cheaper than juice.

Rae'ya
24 Jan 2014, 05:10
Yeah I saw how it was in America when we went grocery shopping. It's not quite so bad over here, but there's still a perception the pre-packaged is a lot cheaper than from-scratch. But we usually spend about $150 on groceries a fortnight... which a lot less than we just spent the other day. But it was still cheaper than eating out everyday, which is the other misperception.

When you factor in a weekly bill vs individual ingredients... that block of cheese and block of butter and pack of pasta is actually like four meals, not one. So it spreads out over the week. I just couldn't believe how much more we spent on pre-packaged stuff than we usually do.

Rowanwood
24 Jan 2014, 06:24
I find cooking myself FAR cheaper, in the long run, too. If you won't eat leftovers or plan what you are going to make it doesn't work. I think the whole "packaged is cheaper" is actually due to a lack in the skills to make food, not the food itself.

A bag of beans, a bag of rice, some veggies and a small piece of meat could feed a family for a week if you were careful. It would suck, mind you, but it could be done.

this was my dinner last night -

Chunk of round steak, about to go out of date $10.00, used half ($5).
Package of tortillas, $1.00, used 4 out of twenty ($0.20)
1 green pepper, $0.75
2 Roma tomatoes $0.75
1/2 onion $0.12
various spices, hot sauce, etc. $0.50

Total cost, $7.32

fed me, wife, and one for dog (- the onion), making it $3.66 per person, not including dog.

And very good, too!

Yep, and Corbin's example is a really good indication of how pre-packaged food is generally false economy.

My husband and I were single income for over twelve months when he first moved to Aus, because he wasn't allowed to work until the spouse visa was approved. I made $700 a week, rent came out fortnightly ($540) on the same week the car payment came out. On a rent week we were lucky to have $50 in the bank. Amongst everything else we managed on about $100-$150 on groceries a fortnight, and ate WELL on that, because we were smart about what we bought. Now we eat like kings, and still spend less than $200 a fortnight.

Right now, I'm tossing up whether I have fish and boiled veg for dinner (alas, no steamer in the hotel apartment) or whether I cave and have peanut butter on toast.

I forget to get the lamb chops out of the freezer this morning before I left for the hospital :(

People think they're getting a bargain on the McDonald's "dollar menu". Yeah, OK, so a parent with 2 kids goes. There's $3. on the sandwiches, and add for soda, milk, etc., etc. and OF COURSE it would have been cheaper to eat at home.

It's the grains that bother hubby. I remember being a kid and thinking that 'grainy bread' was the worst thing ever... but tastes change lol.

I actually eat very little bread, because I produce too much insulin. So when I do eat bread I want to make sure that I'm going to enjoy it... otherwise it's just a wasted carb-fest that is going to ruin my day.

I've found that when left to my own devices, I tend toward whole foods, almost a combination raw food-fruitarian diet. I get my produce from the farmer's market and buy "processed" whatever I can't find there - meat, eggs, milk, rice, cereal; kitchen staples I can't get at the market, basically. I also buy frozen vegetables at the grocery store because they keep longer and are supposedly frozen at their peak freshness. I don't (yet) know any farmers who sell meat, eggs or milk, but I'd be interested to find some and compare prices.

I took the bus downtown and back this morning so I could hit the market and got some great stuff for good prices - four papayas for one dollar, for example. One woman even tossed me a free bunch of apple bananas. :D I bought two avocados and lost one somewhere along my way home, but oh well. Maybe some needy person will find it.

Currently eating a banana, an orange, and coffee (which I take these days with honey and ground cinnamon). Will be having leftover stir fry later.

1/2 can diced tomatoes + the juices
2 overeasy eggs put on top.

This was dinner and will be my lunch mush for tomorrow and I shall put this delicious slop into a corn tortilla. All the office shall be busy, and I shall read my book, and be "HAHA" in silent pomposity.

My co-worker didn't come through with the pig, so I made up something on the spot for dinner:

Chopped up chicken breast fried in olive oil with red onions and red bell pepper, seasoned with garlic, salt, and pepper. To this I then added a can of tomato soup and a can of diced tomatos, including the juice, added a bit more pepper and garlic, heated it through, and then poured over wholewheat rotini, complete with Parmesan. It was quite good, I'll be having the rest at work tonight. I only wish I had basil and oregano on hand.

Slowcooker beef stew. Lots of vegetables. Bitter and smoky, like good coffee. Probably all the beer, wine, and heavy vegetables I put in it.

Cherry season is around Christmas here in Adelaide. We have several cherry farms where you can go and pick your own and get an enormous box for about $10.

Last year's season was so bad, though, that pick-your-own was scrapped and the prices rocketed. They just didn't have the crops to be able to do it. :(

Anyways... right now I'm eating leftover lasagne that I made last night. Technically, it's vegetarian lasagne made with Quorn, because I don't eat ground meat. And my nephew, who usually doesn't eat my mum's lasagne because he doesn't like bechemal sauce, capsicum or crunchy veggies, told me last night "I love your cooking" (despite the bechemal sauce, capsicum and al dente veggies). :D

I put on spaghetti sauce (which has mushrooms and is WAAAY cheaper then buying 'pizza' sauce) Added pepperoni, red bell peppers, pineapple and black olives. So good.

I made some slow cooked boneless pork ribs for dinner this evening. Had them in the oven for seven hours in maple syrup, brown mustard, Worcestershire sauce, a little hot sauce, garlic salt, and ginger. Settling down now to eat until I'm ready to burst, and topping it all off with a bottle of elderflower hard cider.

I pick them up at my local gas station at the bus stop. But truth be told, you get them at almost every single liquor store, am/pm, Circle K and 7-11. This is why I specifically picked a predominantly Hispanic neighborhood to live.

The brand I get is King Henry's.
You can order them on-line! Check out all the Hispanic stuff they have.

It has the texture of like a dried apricot with tangy sugar sparkles on them. Sooo good.
