Ok I probably should be knocking on wood right now ... but if you've been watching the weather you've seen that Long Island has been getting knocked around a bit. Here in this little nook we call Carle Place we have just been geting the rain and lighting. The worst of it seems to have been going around us. Plenty of water for my container garden ...no trees knocked down on my front lawn.
I hope that all who have been affected by this bad weather gets the help they need as soon as possible.
This has been one crazy year so far with the weather. I probably could have started my container garden in January. I'm starting to get so many tomatoes I might have to pull out the canning equipment. I haven't used them in years and years. So long that I may have to read up on them again. Good thing the libaray is not too far away!

Its a lovely Sunday Morning and time for me to work my money saving magic. This little trick also saves time and help you eat healthier. What you need. A large pot of boiling water, Steel cut oatmeal and a very lightly greased bread pan. Cook a large batch of steel cut oatmeal according to the directions. I cook enough for 8 servings. After dishing yourself out a portion place the rest in the bread pan. Cover it and place in the fridge. Enjoy your oatmeal any way you wish. I like a dash of brown sugar and frozen berries. The frozen berries cool off the hot hot oatmeal while the hot hot oatmeal thaws the tasty berries. Tommorow pullout your bread pan and slice off a protion of the oatmeal for breakfast once again topping however you wish. If you want you can even flavor it before you put it in the bread pan to save more time but then you have to have the same flavor all week.
