    « Eat on $30 Challenge - Poverty and Hunger in East Tennessee | Main | How the hell do you cook barley?!! »

    You're a rock star! Love you baking your own bread and all! What an awesome, detailed post about Day 2! :)

    It's admirable how you're going after the challenge and the food sounds fantastic! I do find it odd that folks are pro-rating the food items though. My assumption was to take $30/person and purchase everything except salt, pepper, and oil for the week. Looking forward to following the rest of your week! :)

    Thanks Tami! I actually got hooked on baking bread about a year ago and it's a habit that's stuck. I can't spend $3 or $4 on a loaf of bread that I can bake for $1. Especially when it so easy.

    Hey Jen! I wish I could have met you at BlogHer Food! I actually talked about the pro-rating of food in my first post. I'd love to do the challenge completely cold turkey but I can't this time around. I have too much stuff in my fridge that needs to be used and my budget can't allow for duplicate items to be purchased right now. I am charging myself for anything besides salt and pepper. I'm hoping that next time this challenge comes around, I can try doing this without any items I already own.
