WEEKLY MEAL WRAP UP

Making meals here on the urban homestead is all about using what’s growing in the garden, preserved (canned) in the pantry along with a few basic staples that we have to purchase.

Over the last decade we’ve been able to whittle down our shopping list to a handful of a few basic “necessities.”  Of course, we could do better on a few things – make our own, etc but we are able to eat well on a few dollars a day.

    It all sounds delicious.

    You mention acorn flour pancakes quite often. Would you mind sharing the recipe? Do you purchase acorn flour or forage for wild acorns and then grind the flour yourself? I would love to be able to come up with a use for all of the acorns which fall from the oak tree in our front yard.
