Nearly every morning I have a green smoothie with an english muffin and egg white sandwich. I often add avocado, red onions or both to the sandwich. I always wait for english muffins to go on sale--and I had to look for a while before I found one that was nutritionally good and didn't contain HFCS, which I loathe.

I really want to try making my own though. I was thinking this money, control ingredients..yes, please!

And while I'm at it, I want to make some of my own bread. I LOVE the bread from the farmer's market, but I want to make it myself so I don't feel like we can only have paninis on Sundays and Mondays (before the bread goes stale). I do not have a bread machine (and won't be buying one)--I was thinking I might try this recipe...or does someone have a better one?

Anything else y'all make at your house instead of buying? I'd love recommendations!

Any of the "no knead" and "almost no knead" bread recipes are great! It takes about 24 hours to make a loaf, but it is by far the easiest bread I have ever made. Do a google search for the recipes and it can be adapted to make sandwich loaves as well as whole wheat bread.

ooh, thanks for the suggestion! I am definitely going to try that one!
