Homemade Bread & Tuna-Egg Sandwiches and Campbell Soup

Good evening, dear friends 😀

With the spiralling cost of petrol/gas, prices of most foodstuff have gone up, too. RM100 will not buy me as much groceries as it would have last year. 🙄 As such, these days, it is more economical and healthier to just have a few simple meals at home. Also, most food stalls here are now resorting to using more MSG (monosodium glutamate) to enhance their flavour since their costs have gone up, and I don’t like the side effects that MSG has.

When the price of our favourite brand of bread has gone up but the size of the load has reduced simultaneously … it was time to bring out my dusty breadmachine and make my own bread again! 😆

The recipe for my Homemade Wholemeal Bread is posted below. This bread is quite soft and light as I have only added a small proportion of wholemeal flour, seeing as my hubby doesn’t like wholemeal breads. 😆

Homemade Bread Recipe –

1 1/4 cups milk, slightly warmed
1 large beaten egg
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup white sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups bread flour
3/4 cup wholemeal bread flour
1 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast

*** Place all ingredients in the tin of bread machine as per the order above and bake according to manufacturer’s directions

The smell of bread baking wafting through the house is enough to make my kids wait impatiently to bite into slices of buttered, hot bread! Below is a picture of my son’s simple dinner – his plate of stacked sandwiches! 😆

    Now that’s a lovely loaf from the bread machine dear choesf 🙂 Mine never look as lovely as that. I am afraid my machine has gone into a cupboard too… I should do what you have done and get it out – most loaves over here are between AUD$4-5 EACH!
    I think you’ve hit on a brilliant idea to simplify at least a couple of the mid-week meals. Prices are going up and up and up, my pay is going nowhere nowadays. A decent weekly shop for me would be about $150 at the moment. My milk is $5.06 for 2 litres, the fruits all seem expensive, meat’s skyrocketed… bring on the simple suppers!
    with love to you xx

    Hi there, dear sweetrosie! 😀

    My breadmachine is almost 10 years old! But it can still bake beautifully if we have the right bread recipes. I calculated that it only cost a fraction of those commercially made breads if we bake our own. A 400gm of white bread here costs about US 80 cents, but it looks like your breads are even more expensive! But our Australian Farmhouse milk here costs the same as yours – my kids prefer the important Australian milk as the local milk is just not as tasty. Even my cream puffs made with local milk turned out terrible, it’s like the milk here has a lower cream content. 🙄

    Yes, I know exactly what you mean, my husband’s pay is fixed but with the escalating food prices, we just have to think of other ways to cut down our expenses and usually, it has to be our food and that is the flexible part. 🙄

    These days, I am cooking more 1-dish or 1-pot meals more often, as they are more economical and actually, even less time consuming for me. 💡

    Have a lovely weekend!

    With love and hugs,

    choesf 😀
