The next part will be to figure out the exact cost for 1 loaf to see whether it's helping my budget. I use unbleached flour and that is not as cheap as regular flour. And of course the wheat flour is more expensive too. The salt and yeast are very inexpensive considering it will take me awhile to use it up if I make one batch a week. And I've been spending around $1.97 for Mrs Baird Honey Wheat Bread and I purchase 3 loaves bi-weekly.
The one thing about making items from scratch is that I must think ahead. I can't throw something together at the last moment. Making out a two-week menu helps in this area since I can look ahead and see what I'll need to prepare in advance. But sometimes, I forget to look ahead and then I'm left scrambling. But at least I keep trying.
This bread is definitely tastier than store-bought and it's fat free. I will probably still buy store-bought bread, but I will be making this more often.
