Oatmeal and apples

September 9th, 2009 at 04:12 pm

I have been buying oatmeal every morning at work for $1.00, but I know my Irish oats bought in bulk at Winco and cooked at home is even cheaper than that. So I have 4 days worth cooking on the stove right now. I have successfully frozen it and microwaved it at work in the past. I just needed to get back in the habit.

Also my neighbor across the street borrowed my large crockpot to process a bunch of apples into apple pie filling and brought be a pint when she brought the crockpot back yesterday. I have a pie in the oven too.

It's amazing how much more I can get done around the house only working 4 hours a day. My shoulder is feeling a lot better and I am probably going to have to increase my hours when I see the doctor again, next Thursday. Until then I am going to balance getting stuff done around here and sitting with ice on my shoulders each day.

By the way have we all been watching "Hoarders" on A&E?? Everyone seems to be purging... me included.

Edited to add: Just mixed up apple muffins to put in the oven when my sweet potato fries are done! What has gotten into me?

    I splurged on a zojirushi and never regretted it.
    We set it the evening before and in the morning have perfectly cooked, fresh, hot, steel cut oats ready to eat.

    I would not say it is money saving, but we use this machine almost every day for perfect oatmeal.

    I just saw Hoarders for the first time. It's fascinating, sad and disturbing.

    Sorry about your shoulder. Yup, it is nice to phase out of work if you can. I am using up tons of vacation time day by day and I love it - it gives me the breathing room I need. Mmm, oatmeal and apples - fall is a great season for a frugal person!

    I should also try to read and write more on this site. I need it.

    Sounds like lots of loving coming from your oven!
