- Make yogurt. Making yogurt is one of the simplest things in the world. The ingredients are milk and a couple of tablespoons of the last batch of yogurt and the yogurt can be mixed with fruit, made into a smoothie, mixed with granola, made into a salad dressing or Greek tzatziki sauce, etc.
- Make granola. Most breakfast cereals are horribly overpriced and full of sugar; much better to make your own cereal.
- Boil a dozen eggs. These will be used for everything from a hard-boiled egg breakfast, egg salad sandwiches, potato salad, etc.
- Bake bread. Making a couple of loaves of bread is also one of the simplest things to do and again, homemade bread doesn't contain all of the chemicals and preservatives that store bought bread does.
- Cook up some beans. Soak then boil beans then store them in the fridge for quick chili, baked beans, refried beans, soup, etc.
- Occasionally we work on a bigger food project such as making hundreds of tamales or lumpia which keep well in the freezer, make tortillas, bake pies or cookies if there is an event happening during the upcoming week, etc.
This may sound like a lot of work but with two people working, it doesn't actually take a lot of time to do all of these things, many of which are cooking/baking/boiling simultaneously.
