A Thrifty Week at Harvest Lane Cottage #28
~ I made do with using up lots of leftovers and bits and pieces of food this week.
~ I made pancakes with what I had on hand... a bit of ground wheat, some oats, cornmeal, and ground golden flax seed. They were... interesting and full of fiber. ~grin~
~ I also made pancake syrup by adding maple, vanilla, and butter extracts to some corn syrup I found in the back of the cupboard.
~ I received a new Bible for review. My old one is falling apart. Praise God.
~ I reviewed Keepers of the Covenant.
~ I began reading Lady of Willowgrove Hall, a book I received in exchange for an honest review.
~ The fourth book in the collage is Where Treetops Glisten another review book.
~ I kept the heater turned off even though it's starting to get chilly. A few years ago our heater broke, and we had no way to get it fixed. I learned the difference between chilly and dangerously cold. Here's some advice on keeping the shivers at bay and keeping warm.
