Prepping and Saving Money
Since I am a big advocate of self-sustainability and being prepared for surprises, I want to start providing content that will help you do just that. An easy way to save money is to make staple items at home from scratch. This, not only saves money, but it saves time. Why order out when making something at home isn't hard?
Also, we now have to start thinking about the ingredients that many restaurants are using. Hyperinflation will force restaurants (including fast-food chains) to cut corners. The "green sustainability" agenda is pushing for Frakenfoods that are made with fungi, worms and bugs. It is important to learn how to make your own foods, so that you aren't dependent on others for your meals.
The following video is a step by step how-to that will teach you how easy it is to make marinara sauce at home.
Ingredients (for one can)
1 large 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes
1 tablespoon dried parsley (2 tablespoons if fresh)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of black pepper (or 1/4 of a teaspoon if you don't like too much pepper)
1/4 cup of olive oil or avocado oil
1/2 of a medium size onion (diced)
1 clove of garlic (minced)
1/2 cup of wine or 1/2 cup of water
In a medium to large pot (saucepan) over medium heat, sauté the diced onion. Once it is translucent, lower the heat and add the minced garlic. Be careful to not let it burn.
Once this the onion and garlic are cooked, add the crushed tomatoes and the rest of the ingredients.
Cook on low for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally and then add the wine.
Simmer for an additional 15-30 minutes or until wine is cooked out.
*If you like a sweet sauce add sugar to taste.
