Quick, homecooked Eggy Bread

I think home cooking is green. In the spirit of  cooking at home, I’m adding random recipes of food I make, other than my crock pot meals I document on my G.I. Crockpot blog, (which I mainly use as a recipe box for myself). I try to add simple, easy and quick meals. If they don’t have those three adjectives, I probably won’t make it.

What’s for breakfast?

If we’re refusing packaged cereal, and bulk cereal is too expensive, what else can we eat for breakfast?

Made from scratch, obviously. They don’t look too “perfect” now do they?! ha! I always put in too many blueberries and they explode and make a mess. I love it. My husband, not so keen.

No to plastic bread bags

These drive me crazy. These bread bags are usually NOT recyclable. Which means, if I’m trying to follow a zero waste lifestyle, I had to give them up.

The dreaded plastic. It’s everywhere! I never even thought about it, until I started zero waste!

Granted, we aren’t big bread eaters, but when you want a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, it just doesn’t cut it on homemade tortillas. We decided to simply make our own bread.

One step closer to zero waste!

A tasty concoction.

Making your own food

Making your own food

What we recycle and how to reduce it.

Trying to rid ourselves of the glass jars and cans that we bring into the house, I’m attempting to make as much food as possible rather than purchase it. I’m now making my own peanut butter, bread, hummus, soups, juices, Greek yogurt, muffins, pesto, cappuccino, beans, nut mix, and salsa. I shall next attempt marinara sauce. If I could figure out how to make my own cheese, I would. I’d like to figure out how to make crackers! Besides cutting back on packaging, we’re getting less preservatives, sugar and other goop in our systems we don’t  need.

My man wants to learn how to brew his own beer. Think of the glass bottles we’d save! A friend of his gave us a tour of a self-brewery in his basement and showed us how it was done. The beer, however, hmmm…how could I say it in a nice way? It tasted like lukewarm yeast. But that was years ago. I’m sure he’s perfected it by now!
