    Anyone into grits?

    Love grits. I like them simply with butter and salt and maybe a little milk once they're finished cooking. I eat Cream of Wheat (a favorite of mine since I was a kid) the same way. I made shrimp and grits once from a nice looking recipe I found online. It wasn't bad, but not something I'd make...

    I'd like recommendations for good powdered eggs

    I agree, powdered milk is not very pleasant, if you drink it on its own. My grandma, who lived through the Great Depression, always made pitchers of powdered milk that she kept in her fridge and would serve it with cookies, and also with meals, to my sister and I anytime we would visit. We drank...

    I'd like recommendations for good powdered eggs

    Yes, I'd much rather have raw eggs as well. But I'm thinking about all this talk of egg shortages and food shortages and that kind of thing. It's just something I think I'd like to have on hand, kind of like having powdered milk on hand, just in case we have times of emergency and fresh eggs...

    I'd like recommendations for good powdered eggs

    With high egg prices and possible shortages coming, etc., I'm looking to buy some powdered eggs to have on hand, just in case. Do any of you buy powdered eggs and could you recommend a good brand with good flavor that doesn't cost an arm and a leg? I'm looking mostly for eggs that can be eaten...

    Whatever happened to 'normal' sized croutons?

    Excellent. Thank you. I have powdered milk in my store room, along with emergency food kits and some stock of canned goods. I mean, you never know.

    Whatever happened to 'normal' sized croutons?

    Thanks for the recipe and the tips. This may sound like a silly question, but when you say "milk powder", do you mean just your standard dried/powdered milk? Or is there a special milk powder you need to use?

    Whatever happened to 'normal' sized croutons?

    It looks amazing. I'd love to try it very lightly toasted and spread with some quality butter. It's those simple little things in life that make it all worth it. And a good piece of buttered toast is one of those things :yum:

    Oh my goodness, look how beautiful this is. I may have to put away my dislike for baking and try making a loaf, once I find the pan.

    Very interesting indeed. I've never seen one of those before. Now I'm curious and will look up some more info!

    Whatever happened to 'normal' sized croutons?

    They're still with the salad dressing and some in the produce dept. here. Speaking of what's in the produce dept, I also like the wonton strips you can buy for salads. But sometimes I just want good ole croutons. I'm not even sure where I would start looking for something like that. Sounds...

    Whatever happened to 'normal' sized croutons?

    May have? They absolutely did become larger. And harder. It's difficult to eat the large ones. Some of them are so hard that I can barely bite into them.

    Whatever happened to 'normal' sized croutons?

    Well I'm going to sue them all because I want the little ones back! LOL And what happened to the emojis? No more little smiley faces that we can put into our posts. Why did they get rid of those??? :-(

    Whatever happened to 'normal' sized croutons?

    I've actually done that a couple of times, using something to break up the croutons. But then I end up with a bunch of crumbs and tiny little pieces that I can't really use in a salad. I pick out the pieces that are salvageable, but the whole process is more trouble than it's worth.
