    Air Fryer

    Hummm, I have been wondering about these and an instant pot. If I had to choose I would probably go with the air fryer because I have 3 crockpots and they work just fine.

    Prepping for the “Golden Years”

    Some one is a mind reader on here. I was taking a look at my 5 year plan and scrapped it about six months ago. With hubby's health issues everything is falling to me now plus taking care of him. So we are downsizing. No more dreams of large gardens, goats, sheep and an orchard. Now we are talking a postage stamp size yard and in town living. (shudder) but you do what you got to do. So it is back to the drawing board. Your post are helping me with my revised 5 year plan. Keep the ideas coming ladies. I need all the help I can get.

    New cookbook

    We have a friend that is cleaning out his garage and getting ready to have a big yard sale. He called me and said he had some cast iron and wanted to know if I wanted. Of course I went over there and walked away with a Dutch oven and lid. One without a lid, a griddle and a roaster. The best part was he gave me a Dutch Oven cookbook. It has some awesome recipes and all for the Dutch oven.

    First Aid Kits....what's needed

    I agree with Mt. Rider. One major booboo and there goes your supplies. Hubby cut his hand and it had to be changed and dressed twice a day. All that I had stocked was gone before he got the stitches out. I am thinking white sheets from the thrift store for bandages. You can wash them then boil them. That will kill pretty much any germs. I will keep sterile gauze to put next to the wound but need back for the outer covering.

    Sour Dough Starter

    Oh yes. Hubby loves pasta. Please do share. Believe it or not I just searched sour dough starter on here and it let me to this thread.

    Sour Dough Starter

    Bumping this up so that I can find it again. I need to use some of these recipes. Since we are down on income it is back to poverty cooking. No more fancy store bread. Actually we don't eat enough to warrant spending the money on a loaf of bread. It usually ruins before we finish it.

    No garden here this year, going to try herbs in pots we will see what happens. We are dog sitting for the youngest son, who is coming out of the truck to be a border patrol agent. He is now driving local until his application process is complete for border patrol and the company does not allow dogs on local runs, so mom and dad to the rescue. I will just have to drool over y'all's gardens. LOL

    Well I survived my first day back in the workforce. It was an awesome day. It was wonderful to be appreciated again.

    Prayers needed

    UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for all your prayers. All these prayers have carried me through the last three weeks. Normally I would have freaked out after a couple of days. But with all my prayer warriors praying I have not had a melt down. I know this is all in God's timing and I have to walk through this, but He will be by my side the whole way. I got the job at the hospital. I start Monday. We will have health insurance again, mine is free but hubby's will cost me $60 every two weeks. I had to take a cut in pay, but it is worth it. This hospital is part of a corporation and after a year I can transfer to one of the other hospitals that is in the corporation and not loose anything. Which is part of the 5 year plan. With the degeneration in hubby's back he can't handle the cold and we are looking to move further south, where the winters are mild and no extreme temperature changes. You know 90 during the day and 22 at night. There is a new 5 year plan in the works and this is step one! We are off to a good start.

    Heaven's Manna

    I am trying to find a balance for our diet. Let me stop right here and say diet is not to loose weight (which I need to do and am doing slowly) but a way of life. Both of hubby and I have to face the fact that some health issues run in our families, like heart, diabetes and dementia. We have pretty much phased out processed foods. No frozen dinners, no hamburger helper boxes and no sodas. Pretty much everything is cooked from scratch. But even then just reading "health" advice and "diet" suggestions has my head spinning. I ran across a little book I bought many, many years ago. The copyright is 2002. It is called Manna from Heaven, by Charmaine Rivers. It has me looking at our food choices differently. Our choices were not bad as a matter of fact they are really Biblically based and I wasn't even trying. I am just trying to find more ways to was to incorporate "good" food into our diet. Like dates, figs, nuts, and other healthy choices. In this little book is a recipe for Date Nut Bread. It is not sweet and hubby really liked it. The only change is I used raisins instead of cranberries because that is what I had. 8oz chopped dates 1oz dried cranberries ( I used raisins) 1/2c brown sugar, packed 1/4c soften butter 3/4 cup boiling water 1 egg, well beaten 1 teaspoon of baking soda 1 3/4c flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2c chopped almonds or walnuts ( I used walnuts) Bring water to a boil, turn off heat and add dates, cranberries, brown sugar and butter. Stir until butter is melted and sugar is integrated. Let cool then beat in egg. Sift together baking soda, salt and flour. Add to mixture, stirring not beating. Fold in nuts. Put mixture in a light greased pan and bake for one hour. Cool on rack for 10 minutes, then remove from pan. Serve when completely cool. Ok if you notice there is no oven setting so I used 350 degrees and cooked it for 45 minutes. We are at 3,000 plus elevation. I used a 8x8 pan. It came out thin but we were good with it like that. No hubby did not let it cool before asking for some. I cut it down the middle then cut it into inch and half strips. It was good warm. There are other recipes in this book that I am going to try but I have to wait until I go grocery shopping. I need figs and I am afraid they will have to be dried since it is too early in the season for them. I shared all this because I have been studying the foods of the Bible and I plan on adapting our diet to a more biblical based food pyramid. Well as much as I can living in beef country. I will share my resources if anyone is interested. 2018 is the year that we take back our health and break the chains that big cooperate food venders have on us.

    No, different company. I worked for a church before. The job offer came from the local hospital. I also had an interview with the local community college but haven't heard from them. I signed papers for a background check with the hospital yesterday. Now I wait.

    Quick update

    Thanks Mt_Rider. Praying they are all well and on the fast track to recovery.

    Thanks. Today's interview went well. It was with the local hospital. Next week's interview is with the local community college. Pay is about the same at both places but the insurance is cheaper with the hospital. Just praying for God's direction and waiting impatiently
