I truly enjoy making bread. For the most part, the recipes are really simple. My intentions with food are if I can make it, why buy it? Plus bread on average should have about about 5 ingredients, store bought bread...not so much...I can't even pronounce half of those ingredients...and I try not to eat food like that.
However if I am being honest, most days it is soooooooooo much simpler to grab the $1.29 off brand buns and throw them in the grocery cart. But more often than not, I forget to buy items from the store that I needed for a meal. I like to forget the buns, a lot. When I forget the buns it forces my hand to make them. When I make them I always remember how easy it is, how healthy they are, and how good they taste.
