ive also gotten bugs in gold medal flour before, but not any other brand. I store my flour in airtight/waterproof canisters with screw-on tops.
I'm looking at the tins i bought, and I'm thinking maybe I will make brownies or cakes in them, like actually IN them, and give them to people. Maybe frost them and decorate them too. I think that will be sooooo much easier and cheaper than baking 3 kinds of cookies and peanut brittle and all the other stuff i usually make. I will probably have to make 6 brownie recipes to fill 12 tins, and that will cost me next to nothing...the most expensive ingreidents will be eggs and cocoa powder....not that I'm buying it, lol. FIL wont let us pay for anything. If I made cakes, I would only have to make 3 recipes to fill 12 tins, i think....Hm, I might just make chocolate cakes and top with home made frosting and maybe some sprinkles or something. we'll see....
thanks for the gingerbread recipe...I wanted that one for myself LOL!!
