+1 Very true. I probably would end up living in my car before I'd live under a bridge, and the two dogs would help keep me warm because one of my choices would not be to give up my dogs. The girls, on the other hand, would have to go into the witness protection program so as not to end up on someone's dinner plate.

That'll be enough of baiting each other about lifestyles.

Back the the actual topic at hand: Cooking From Scratch

I got the corned beef and Swiss cheese at the Deli and the loaf of rye bread from the store bakery. The sauerkraut is freshly made. Does that count as cooking from scratch when I make my Reuben Sandwich? After all I did have to wait for my number to be called at the deli.

I would consider that cooking from scratch. No-one specified WHOSE scratch.

Thank you. Quite true. No one did specify, did they. At some point someone started from scratch to make those items. And they did a darn good job.

I'd call that assembly, not cooking from scratch. I don't think everyone needs to grow (grains, fruits and veg), raise or catch (fish, poultry, meat), or ferment all their ingredients, but buying a bunch of ingredients and putting them together doesn't equal scratch-made, imo.

Addie, I'd say you have a "homemade" sandwich...Made from scratch, nope.

My remark was made with tongue in cheek. I should have put a there for it. But your right. It is homemade.

November was a tough month--but is it just me, or have DCers gotten snippy since I joined in 2011? We've lost some regular contributors...wondering if they backed off because of the snipping? DC used to be my favourite forum to check. Now I go days without checking in because I don't want to read the posts where members are sniping at one another...or maybe, it is just me, but there seem to be certain members that can be counted on to "pick" on others' posts. Probably just me. Back to finishing baking Christmas cookies so I can call it a night.

No, it is not just you. A lot of posts have been getting removed also for sniping at others. Depending on what mood I am in, I try to ignore them when it is aimed at me. But sometimes I feel like I have to defend myself against the snipers.
