During the Summer, I rarely turn the oven on. Our apartment itself can act like an oven, so we tend to eat simple dinners like spinach salads and things I can cook on the stovetop.
Autumn, however, is a totally different matter! I have been itching to make whole wheat bread the last few days. I followed this recipe:
(Please note, any breads I make are by hand. The bread maker in the house is ME, not a machine.)
I was going to make soup, but David said he preferred roasted vegetables. I cut up a whole onion, 3 very small potatoes, a small butternut squash and 2 small sweet potatoes. I wish I had bought some broccoli for some greens. (I had expected to make soup!) I cut everything very thin, lightly drizzled some olive oil and garlic powder and stuck it in the oven at 375° for 30 minutes.
I figured the cost of the meal to be about five dollars for a family of three. I love the farmers' market!! There's even leftovers (as I wouldn't let David eat all of the bread.)
Maybe I should've made that apple pie...
