What’s a “Poor Jonny’s Weekend”?

It’s what I’m going to have come Friday night when the bills and mortgage are due and I have company coming. If I run to the store and stock up, my bank account will run short. So instead of going out on a limb and “puttin’ on the dog,” I’m going to pull out my Poor Jonny’s Cookbook and plan old-fashioned meals that will nourish and bring back memories of the good ‘ol days. Because I had a garden this summer, I have pumpkins so I’ll make some “Corn Pumpkin Harvest Bread.” I’ll get some wheat berries sprouted so I can fix a “Spicy Sprouted Wheat berry Dish” and then for desert I’ll bake a “Coconut Walnut Five Spice Cake.” We’ll sit around the fire and drink hot tea with the spice cake, laugh and talk about life and the good times it brings.
