Made From Scratch

Curried Lentil Soup

Last Autumn Molly posted about her grocery shopping dilemma where she felt like she was always running to the grocery store and spending more money than she wanted to there. She asked for tips and got a lot of them from her readers. I’ve been thinking back to that post recently because we are trying to be better about staying on budget with our spending. I’ve started to regularly make some things from scratch that we used to buy and I thought it might be fun to share some recipes and tips with you guys. So, I declare next week — February 18 through 22 — to be Made From Scratch Week here on the Mama Urchin blog. Feel free to join in if you want.

    tell me that your “frozen soup” recipe will be one of them?? please?

    It’s funny you mention the grocery post b/c i was just thinking about revisiting it. are you still getting your baking staples from king arthur flour online? i get their emails now and think of you every time. i need to do a better job of comparing prices online with box store prices….

    can’t wait for your recipes next week. yummy.
