Day 20 Gaining Confidence with new Recipes

My husband made breakfast. As I gave him the directions, he exclaimed "What!" He had never fixed oatmeal in this way. After eating the muesli and determining that he liked it, he had a new skill. We all had a new way to enjoy one of the basics and it was popular enough that I wonder why I haven't been fixing it every week. The five year old helped Dad mix the cereal and there was a wholesome "family feeling" to start off President's day.

We fixed treats of popcorn balls, Rice Krispies and snicker doodles to enjoy after our evening activity. It is nice to have white corn syrup and a couple of boxes of Rice Krispy cereal on hand to add some variety to the possibility of treats we can whip up.

Breakfast: Muesli or "Swedish oatmeal" - raw oats mixed with sweetened condensed canned milk, (or canned milk with powdered sugar if you want to control how sweet the mixture is)and fruit (Grapes , strawberries, and apples are good if one is using fresh fruit. We put in canned pineapple and Tropical Fruit Mix)

Lunch: Grilled Cheese Rounds made from the French Bread rolls, and Campbell's Tomato Soup for dipping.

Dinner: Beef Barley Soup with carrots, potatoes, and celery. I used canned Roast beef in gravy and flavored it with beef bullion. I'm glad to use the barley. It has been on the shelf a long time.
