In preparation for tonight's spaghetti I cracked open my HUGE can of tomato paste and divided it up. I got eight sixteen ounce servings for 2.40. Well worth the ten minutes of work and my kitchen momentarily looking like a murder scene. Also, I decided to try my luck using the huge can with justmama's bread recipe. Hopefully it works out because it would make wonderful, sandwich round pieces of bread.
As far as attempting to make tortillas that will have to wait at least a week or two. I need shortening or lard, neither of which I ever keep on hand. I think maybe a trip to trader joes is in order because hopefully there I could find a shortening that isn't filled with gmo nonsense. I've been wanting to get unsweetened coconut shreds as well, which it seems I can only find there.
It's been disgustingly hot here as well. As a result my kids don't want to go outside, then they get grumpy. We did take a walk in the evening, which seemed to help a little tiny bit.
Eggs coming tomorrow!
I think we'll go to my parents on Thursday for more kiddie pool time. I might even be bringing my suit, lol.
