We love to take breakfast when we stay in a hotel or have a very early morning drive. Lately I have been taking this pumpkin bread with us. Tasty and it makes two loaves (bonus: I use an entire can of pumpkin leaving me with no leftovers to find a use for). I have a loaf pan with a lid so I just slice it before we leave and pack it in the pan.
I enjoyed this list of ways homesteading can save money because it pertains to so many different lifestyles, including waste free. Plus I love a good list!
Great quote here.
