Cheap Convenience

Don’t you just love convenience foods?  They’re just so darned….convenient! Until you get to the check-out counter.  Then it’s not so convenient to my checkbook.  Or my health for that matter. All those unpronouncables.

That’s why I love making my own convenience foods.  They’re ever so much cheaper and better for me and still convenient.

This weekend I got a hankering for baked goods – cookies, cakes, brownies etc.  Get down the flour and the sugar and the baking soda and and and.  Why not do it once and make up lots of batches of goodies at once? So, out came my Make A Mix book. It’s one of my favorites.

I turned to the Snack Cake recipe and mixed up and bagged six snack cake mixes in about 20 minutes.  Score!  Now I can just grab one off the shelf when I want to make a quick something sweet.

And I know what went into them and what didn’t.  For way less than half the price of one box from the store.  Now that’s convenience.

Next up…..brownie mix.

Hope you’re having a great week!
