Cheap Breakfast

1 box (a whole one) of quick oats
1 1/2 c. dry milk
1 1/2 c. creamer
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1-2 c. freeze dried strawberries, blueberries, whatever you want

Mix it all together. Put back in container. For use, 1/2 c. of mix and 3/4-1 c. hot water. Figured out the cost to be about 20 cents per serving.

#4 wants to have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Cinnamon Spice
1 box quick oats
1 1/2 c. dry milk
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/8-1/4 tsp. ground cloves.
1 tsp. salt

Same directions as above.

#4 wants this one for snack.

I got them at Trader Joe's. I have also gotten them from Emergency Essentials.

The days are so different. Instead of mess and homeschool teaching I have a DH working from home and quiet until 2:54 when #6 (who is 10)...
