Esme, I totally agree with that it's perhaps not frugal to pack Baked Beans with the extra weight charges & in that case it may be cheaper to buy in Italy. However....Homemade Baked Beans are simple to make & surpass the canned version for taste & being 'Frugal' price! So for all Baked Bean lovers why don't you make big batches of them & freeze for upto 3 months

Some interesting reading on this one & I too will be trying to be as self sufficient as possible. Hoping it won't  prove too difficult. I am an outdoor person & love walking & cycling. One of my passions is cooking & baking & the commenti made about sharing within the local community with produce is correct.  I will be producing as much of my own products as possible, also discovered blackberry bushes on my walks with dogs to pick for jams:-)) If I bake a cake for my farmer neighbor he returns daily with fresh produce for me. I make my own pasta & bread:-) Anyone wanting a Birthday or celebration cake making, I'd be more than happy to bake :-) Not sure how I can get around the meat suppy though, I love animals too much to breed & then pop them into the oven:-(  Suppose I could call a favour to the farmer & not keep count on the chickens or name them!!! Looking forward to reading more interesting suggestions....Maxine

You know, after I replied, I felt quite silly, thought it would be something like a Jack Russell, we too call small dogs Rats!!!! Bless, you must of been horrified! I guess you took him home with you then? That's the only problem being a dog lover in Italy, you just want to take them all home with you :-( Anyway, thanks for the reply & I'll try not to take any rats home :-))))
