Sometimes It Was a Suzy SunShine Kind of Day

Japan is still heavy on my mind and in my prayers today. 

This post is about sacrificing somethings for other things 
because we can't always have all things. 

Granny T. (my mother in-law) said that they used to call cracked wheat cereal 
Suzy SunShine.

I thought who wouldn't eat Suzy SunShine, it sounds so cute. 

So here is the recipe. It is yummy and a family favorite:

Suzy SunShine 

1 cup of Cracked Wheat 
2 Cups water 
1 tsp. salt 
Bring to boil, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes. 

When done add: 

1/2 Cup Sugar or honey 
1/2 Cube Butter 
1/2 cup milk 

Stir until thick and yummy. 
Put into bowl and add more milk 
on top if wanted.

This is a comment that I wrote on Blog Frog last week. 

It was in answer to the question 

"What's For Dinner" 

Starting dinner in the morning for younger moms allows you to have things like 
homemade bread, scones, pizza, pots of beans or slow cooker meals. 

Then at dinner time you know what else has to be done to finish up quickly. 

You aren't going to blow the budget for a fast food deal. 

Back in the day I didn't have money to go fast fooding. 

With seven kids and needing to save as much as possible on food, 
and because I wanted my kids to take 
piano, gymnastics, dance and play sports, etc. 

I would plan for meals a month in advance and go to the store 
just once or twice a month. 

(I told you it was back in the day)

 Also my kids loved Suzie SunShine and they loved it for 
breakfast and dinner with pancakes and eggs too 
so that was an easy fix in a pinch.
