Frugal And Wholesome Food

Today’s post is over at the Simple Green Frugal Co-op, and is titled “Frugal Food Like The Old Days“.  My love of the humble scone comes to light, as does my ingrained habit of taking a home cooked lunch to work at least four days a week. It saves me a blooming fortune, and I get to use the yummy jam I make, with lashings of cream.  

Simple pleasures are the best!

    I read your contribution on Simple Green Frugal C0-op and thoroughly agree with everything you say. A friend of mine makes her own granola and then when anyone in the family needs to take a lunch, she puts some granola in a plastic bowl with a lid and adds some milk powder. At lunch time they just add water, give it a stir, and just like that they have delicious granola with milk. Here’s the granola recipe she uses.

    Granola (ex Dawn Buchanan)

    1. Pre-mix:

    8 cups rolled oats
    3 cups stone ground whole wheat flour
    1 cup sunflower seeds
    1 cup coconut

    2. Pre-mix and stir into dry ingredients.

    1¼ cups boiling water
    1 cup oil
    1/3 cup honey

    Spread onto trays and place in oven at 350 F (175 C) stirring often (approx every 5 mins) for about 45 mins total.

    When cool add raisins, dried cranberries or what have you.

    Suggestion: When taking a quantity for lunch, put sufficient in a container and add milk powder. At lunch time just add water for a nice granola with milk lunch.
