Advent 3-Part Cards

Here are some Advent 3-part cards for the youngers.  No reselling, personal use only.  [Update:  The link has been fixed.  Thanks to those who let me know it wasn't working.]

What's Cookin'?

I kept track of all that I was able to make out of one 5-lb bag of flour.  I was using white wheat flour and got the following from just this one bag (no mixing of other flours):  4 loaves of bread; 2 batches of biscuits; 1 batch of muffins.  That's at least $10 worth of the least expensive packaged foods of the same items.  I felt like I was spending too much for the $2.50/bag flour but it's actually still quite economical.  If I had my druthers I would buy non-bromated flour, but King Arther is a bit too high.  Organic wheat is about $3.50.  More than I want to pay for flour but this shows just how much I can get (without trying) from one bag.  It was quite affirming that not only are dc NOT getting all of the extra unhealthy junk, but it saves money too!!!
