Spaghetti Sauce -Make a Big Pot
The store had limited supplies and most of the stuff I never even heard of.. Garbanzo beans per can was quite expensive. Over the required budget. Never had Mrs. Butterworth's syrup. Nothing maple unless it was the real thing. I can't afford that either. No packaged seasoning mixes (like Schillings) spaghetti sauce or anything like it in a jar.
So.....I made my own.
They did have a sort of bakery and I struck it rich when I found bread loafs "unsliced". Jackpot! Looked like homemade and all I had to do was slice it. Used this bread when I ran out of my homemade bread.
I also got hooked on Canadian food items that are not available in the U. S.
Red River Cereal for the best wheat bread, Tender Flake perfect pastry for pie dough, A peach drink mix (kind of like cool aid)and a custard powder for deserts.
