Isn't there a local brand of pita bread? (I forget the name.) You could make toasted pita crisps. I know it's still sort of bread, but... anything short of baking your own Cheerios and I'm lost. Hey, but wait, you could bake some cheese straws or cheese crackers, no?

You should have moved to California before you started this project.

P.S. Pepperidge Farm is based in Norwalk, CT, and now has a line of "Baked Naturals" crackers. Would that be cheating?

Do you have some of the cornmeal from Grey's Gristmill in Rhode Island? Cornbread may be bread, but it's faster than wheat bread, for sure. And it's a change.

I seem to be stuck on the crabapples, but I gotta know: what do they taste like? Similar to normal apples but on the sour side, or what?

I gotta say, that supper sounds superb. And you used leftover bread.

Keep eating the fruit. It will prevent you from cheating with candy.

CC: Too late. Candy was consumed post-funeral today. I was off the premises, but still, that's a cheat (4 miniature Milky Ways and 2 mini-Kit-Kats, in case you're keeping score). But, I'm going to mend my cheating ways.

Jim: Super tart. They really worked well against those rich sausages.

Pyewacket: Great idea. Also, hushpuppies are on the agenda sometime soon.

Karen: Pepperidge Farm is in CT? Dang it. I guess I didn't really have to spend two months weaning the kids off Goldfish. But since I have, I might as well try my hand at whole wheat crackers and cheese straws. Good ideas.

So glad to be part of the Eat Local Challenge - the way we eat all the time. Thank you for mentioning our little local Wood Prairie Farm Flour Mill.
I have a solution to Cherrios: I think it is an Amish cereal recipe.
6 cups Rolled Oats
3 cups Wood Prairie Farm pancake mix, or you can substitute whole grain or all purpose flour, 2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt.
1/2 cup honey or sugar (original recipe called for a whole cup or sugar. I am sure maple sugar would be fabulous.)
2/3 cup milk
1 1/2 cups coconut ( I substitute toasted sunflower seeds or toasted diced almonds)
Bake for 20 minutes or so at 400, stirring 2 or 3 times, until cereal is golden brown and completely dry. Sometimes I leave it in the oven with the oven off to finish drying out.

I am sorry, I forgot 1/2 cup melted butter in with the milk.

WPF: Thanks for the great recipe. I'll have to try that. Do you sell sunflower seeds, by any chance? Seems like I should be able to find some around here, but the birds are too quick.
