In the spring I decided to plant buckwheat in our backyard. It’s a great cover crop and my wife makes this wonderful rice substitute from the buckwheat. I dutifully planted the buckwheat and harvested it. Then I used a grinder to try to get the hulls off. The grinder was too tight and instead of buckwheat I got buckwheat flour. But I did make buckwheat pancakes and they were really yummy.
My buckwheat saga is so much like the financial side of our lives and maybe life itself. We are dutifully doing the right thing and saving and paying down our debt. You are doing that, right? And then something comes a long in our life and grinds our finances a little tighter than we want them. I don’t care who you are that always seems to happen.

Sometimes life gives you buckwheat, sometimes life gives you buckwheat flour. Either way, there’s always a way to make something yummy.
