I’ve had a few inquiries about the stovetop, aka, skillet granola. It’s a little like eating toasted museli, which is supposedly better for you anyway. I’m one for not cooking food too much – almost raw if we can.
With Justin getting a wee bit bored with oatmeal and me with so little time in the morning lately we found this recipe very quick, easy, tasty too. Not that we are dissing oatmeal, we just needed a bit of a change.
Lucky for us we have a few jars of our own honey to sweeten the oats. I don’t put any nuts like the recipe calls for (trying to save money and also cut down on too many “unnessary” staples) Dried fruit would be nice, but I canned or froze all ours this year. Better luck next year.
Like I wrote before we have gone into “Depression Era Mode,” as Farmer D likes to say, here on the urban homestead and trying to reduce our spending and save money. We are eating very simple and homegrown meals with very few basic staples.
We’ve gone through many a hard times in the course of our self reliant journey. Of course, there’s is more each of us could do to save money. Since we have been sorta busy these last few months some basic conservation practices have slipped through the cracks. I for one am not a viligant as I used to be on a few aspects of my urban homestead life. There’s always room for improvements and getting back on “the horse” so to speak when in the course of time you have fallen off.
Anyhow, here’s the skillet granola recipe. Enjoy.
Care to share any of your “falling off the horse” experiences. Was there things that you used to do in the past but are too busy to do any more. What are your goals for 2009 (hmmm, good subject for another post)
