1 Made by Ms. Hughes

2 Compare and contrast the cost and taste of made-from-scratch, convenience, and ready- made foods.

3 Making a food from scratch involves using staple ingredients, or other store bought ingredients. Ex. Making our cookies, and making the macaroni and cheese

4 You are in control of the recipe Flavors Dietary restrictions Freshness May be less expensive than purchasing ready-made or convenience versions May be a family recipe passed down from generation to generation

5 In general may take longer than similar convenience methods Can be more expensive Requires you have all necessary ingredients on hand More mistakes may happen if you are inexperienced in preparing the recipe

6 Box macaroni and cheese Soups Taco kits Hamburger Helper Quaker Oats oatmeal Boxed cake mixes

7 Foods sold premade or cooked. Ex. Deli salads Bakery items Rotisserie Chicken Frozen or Refrigerated entrees, dinners, or side dishes

10 Basic-canned, frozen, or dried foods with few ingredients Instant potatoes, frozen juice concentrate, canned veggies

11 Complex- Several ingredients with more time-saving processing, these often cost more than homemade Ready to use frosting, frozen waffles, frozen entrees
