I had hot bran cereal for breakfast cooked with maple sugar chips and some plum preserves added for flavor (no milk). I also had some of the canned peaches (trade item) and chicory beverage.
For grazing today I am taking turkey/turnip soup with the crumbles of cornmeal dumplings, pea pods in tomato basil sauce, two pieces of cornbread with plum preserves and blackberry applesauce. When I look at the past few days meals, I realize just how important the trade was. If not for the trade items, today's meal would consist of pea pods in tomatoes, applesauce and turkey/turnip soup (no dumplings) and no chicory beverage. Family, thank you for the trade items!!!
