Shh… don't tell anyone I'm poor. They all think I'm living frugal and green just like everyone these days. This is a blog about a senior citizen living a frugal life, on a fixed income, in a low income food desert, and passing along knowledge from lessons learned. Some she learned from her Grandma Mama many years ago and some learned only a few days ago.
Last week I got English muffins from the mobile food bank. I knew what I would do with those right away. I had been hoping for English muffins to make egg muffins for the freezer.
Both packages were moldy. Yuck! I was not in the mood for penicillin muffins. That’s the luck of the draw with food bank food. Those of us who visit the mobile food pantry know this will happen because the food is “day old” or “not quite prime” and often it is very close to past the point of usable. Heck, I’ve gotten moldy bread from the discount bin at the grocery so this is no big deal.
Well now what will I do with all those eggs, cheese, and bacon? I pulled out my sandwich maker and a loaf of fresh bread then made this.
It really is not the same. I was in a mood for egg muffins not egg sandwiches. I ate these but put the rest of the eggs, cheese, and bacon into the freezer for another time. Another mobile food bank delivery is just a few days away. Hmm…. maybe I should make my own English muffins. How hard can it be? I’ve never made them before but I’m sure I can find a recipe for them someplace.
