We're very fortunate to have family visiting with us and they're spoiling us by making our suppers. By the end of the day, making supper is the last thing I want to do as I anxiously await bedtime and my only chance to grab 2 hours of sleep at a time.
So, you work with what you've got and we've got plenty of oats. And maple syrup and blueberries and goats milk to top it off. So you make a hearty bowl of porridge and congratulate yourself that you accomplished another Dark Dark meal (barely...)
We're fortunate to have a great source of oats from Speerville Mills, the blueberries were picked locally and frozen, the goat's milk is part of our CSGS (community supported goat share) and the maple syrup is leftover from our annual pilgrimage to the sugar shack. As my mother says, it's food that "sticks to your ribs" and perfect for our Dark Days.
