Pressure Cooker Blueberry Steel Cut Oats - 15 minutes for a weeks worth of breakfast

Pressure Cooker Blueberry Steel Cut Oats

Man is it cold out.  The rain is bone chilling.  I don’t even want to be outdoors and that is saying a lot, coming from me.

I decided last week to go back to making all our meals ahead of time.  It saves me time, energy and money. Today, was the perfect time to start! I’m sharing one of my husband’s favorite morning breakfasts. Pressure cooker blueberry oats.

Corn Roast & Flavored Butter

Corn Roast & Flavored Butter

Corn Roast & Flavored Butter

Right now fresh ears of corn on the cob are plentiful in the grocery store and along roadside produce stands. The price is right, too. Under 25 cents a serving.  Can’t beat that.  Normally, that means we would be up for hosting a corn roast & flavored butter with drinks at our house.  Due to scheduling this year, that might not happen.

Foraged some mulberries this weekend. Yum!  Now, what to do with them all. First thing I wanted to try was a recipe for mulberry muffins because muffins freeze well. I mixed up a double batch of muffins using a recipe off Flickr.

I had to convert the measurements for US metrics. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Save Money on Groceries

How to Save Money on Groceries

Time to tighten the budget.  How to save money on groceries. I know how to do it. But truthfully, sometimes I find it to be WORK. Just as much work as a fulltime job.  Taking the time to plan out EVERYTHING is a pain. I’m not one who likes to sit down and take two hours out of my week to pre-plan before shopping. Checking store ads, price comparing, cutting and organizing coupons; ugh! I did all that back in the 90’s. Refunding and couponing was a large part of our household back then.  Both are more than acceptable ways to save money.  I just do not have the time and commitment for it today.
