Recently we started purchasing flour in 50 lb bags. We use lots of it. Why? Because we don't buy bread. As of a couple of weeks ago we don't buy flour tortillas either. The last 50 lb bag of flour cost us $21.25. I buy yeast by the pound (about $3) and it lasts about a year. I think the flour will last a couple of months.
When we decided to buy the 50 lb bag of flour we wondered how in the world we were going to store it. After consulting with some friends who do a lot of bulk buying, we found out that if you go to a large grocery store with a deli you can usually get large food grade buckets for free or for a buck or two. Three of those puppies and you have all the flour storage you need.
Wednesdays are Jen's baking day. Saturdays are mine. This weekend I'm making hamburger buns, so I'll probably post my recipe. I might make baguettes too (if I have time tomorrow). I try to make the baguettes every two weeks. Jen has considered marrying them. I tell her she has to settle for me.
