Steep whole oatmeal for five or six days. Stir often with a paddle. When the water thickens pour it off and cook it like porridge and eat with milk.

Potato cakes are made by mixing cold boiled potatoes ("weak" potatoes are not of much use) through flour adding some lard or butter. Roll out then and cut into squares or shapes. Cook quickly on a pan with lard. Caraway seeds are sometimes added.
