I've been experimenting with making my breakfast oatmeal and hot cereal savory. Normally, I add brown sugar, raisins, milk and tahini (thanks to Beth for the nut butter tip); lately I've added walnuts, cheese, olive oil, and extra salt. It's comparable to a simple pasta or rice pilaf, still mild enough for breakfast.
I am a wife and mother of two. I am a stay-at-home mom, part time cookbook editor, a Mennonite, and a city dweller. I like to make things (see the blog categories below). This blog is a record of what I make and the ways I try to be thrifty. Welcome!
"Thrift is the really romantic thing; economy is more romantic than extravagance...thrift is poetic because it is creative; waste is unpoetic because it is waste...if a man could undertake to make use of all the things in his dustbin, he would be a broader genius than Shakespeare."
