- Started a batch of home cultured buttermilk. It was easy to make from a good starter product I purchased ... tucked away in the fridge ... won't have to buy buttermilk again if I keep making a little batch each week.
- Got a jar of sour dough starter waiting to ferment with natural air born yeast.
- Purchased a one gallon glass tea jug (at a thrift store) with lid and spigot to separate non-homogenized milk ... now we have cream (should I make butter?)
- Made a large pot of porridge (first soaking the rolled oats ... then slow cooking for 1 hour). So far it has provided breakfast, an addition to a loaf of bread and was added to pancake batter two mornings. It's one way to get picky eaters to eat their oatmeal. (Make a large batch and keep in the fridge for a few days of effortless mornings.)
- sandwich/salad sprouts are growing in the pantry.
- from a few pieces of home made bread ... I made a delish salad topping of croutons and roasted pumpkin seeds. Nothing goes to waste in a thrifty home:)

So Far This ....
