Get back to basics
We are 14 for dinner at a family cottage. While it might have been easier to go for convenience and buy pre made burgers and pre made fixings, I insisted we go old school, buy the basic ingredients and do it ourselves. It saves money and it adds value. People appreciate things more when they come from the kitchen rather than the grocery aisle. Crowds like this around the dinner table remind me of my grandparents who had 14 kids. This was just another ordinary day for them. It’s no wonder they were such good cooks and such careful stewards of their resources. There were no big box stores, no wholesale clubs, just a general store and alot of planning. It paid off for them and it can pay off for us too. So get back to basics. It’s time well spent (and it tastes better too).
