I have a large crockpot and this one batch will be enough for all 5 of us for Sunday dinner and leftovers for my work lunches for a few days. I'll also use my bread machine and make a hearty winter bread with molasses, ww flour, flax, egg & cornmeal. My homemade bread is less then $.20/loaf since I purchased all the stuff in bulk.
