I heard a new one yesterday.  Someone said I reminded them of women in olden days who made their own bread, jams, soaps and other products.  I know I feel pretty old at times. She meant it as a compliment and I took it that way. :-)

As I looked through some of my photos, I realized that she may be right! I am old-fashioned in the sense that I make just about everything from scratch. 

I stood in the store one night and decided I was going to purchase tortillas since I'm not a fan of rolling them out.  I stood in front of the display of tortillas for about 10 minutes and ended up walking out without them.  I couldn't bring myself to pay that much for cardboard tasting circles! 

What started out as a way to save some money and deal with my daughter's food allergies has turned into a lifestyle.

Yep, I'm old-fashioned and I like it! :-)

P.S.  I know over the past few weeks many of you have asked me various questions about one thing or another.  I always try to answer direct questions right under yours in the comment section of the post.  So don't forget to go back and check there.  Onesme, I answered your question about the balms there.  A few of you asked for the recipe for scones and I posted a link to it under your questions on that post.
