  1. Ooops, per Ambergris' link, I should have used up those pintos I just cooked 8 years ago!
  2. Bumping this to the top! It's that time of year again. Just made my dreaded trip to Wal-Mart and bought some Mucinex to replace our expired boxes. When you have the flu, the last thing you feel like doing is going out to the drugstore for meds. I also need to make up some more bone broth for the freezer. I'll also be placing an order for antibiotics through Cal/Vet to replace expired meds. Luckily, we haven't needed them other than to treat a feral cat with an abcess, but it's nice to know they are there in the event of an emergency.
  3. I've been going through the pantry and trying to use up things with looming expiration dates. For example, we don't drink milk but I always have a few cans of evaporated milk on hand for the very occasional recipe. So, made some cornbread with one of the cans and am planning a pudding cake (pudding layered with graham crackers) for Sunday dinner. The graham crackers are leftovers from a camping trip dd took with her friend. Trying not to waste anything and also trying to make room for the ads that will start in a few weeks. This way, I can buy 6 more cans of evaporated milk while they are
  4. (((((Snowmom))))) I'm so very sorry for your loss. Prayers of comfort for you and your family.
  5. This is late and the peppers have either been eaten or rotted by now, but my favorite pepper relish recipe is the one inside the liquid Certo Pectin box. In fact, I need to make two batches for Christmas gifts. Sigh . . . it's that time already.
  6. Pm me a mailing address and I'll package then up this weekend.
  7. I've been exploring old threads. I forgot about this recipe! This used to be one of our favorites. Posting it here because you can substitute beans for the hominy if you are so inclined! Turkey Posole Chili (this was adapted from a Posole soup recipe from the USDA 5 a day program and I don't really have a set recipe. What I have is what goes in!) 1- 20oz package ground turkey 2 - onions chopped (yellow or white, doesn't matter!) 1 tablespoon fresh chopped garlic (I use way more than this) 2 chopped peppers - I usually use a red and a green chopped
  8. Excellent ideas on this thread:
  9. Here in California, gas goes up 12 cents a gallon tomorrow. Thank you elected officials. http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-pol-ca-gas-tax-increase-political-battle-20171031-story.html
  10. Bump! I had forgotten about this recipe and I have LOTS and LOTS of butternut squash to use!
  11. I found this link in the Food Storage Section of the Forum. Good stuff! http://nchstd.documents.s3.amazonaws.com/More Month than Money PDF.pdf
  12. If you are truly worried, what about throwing a bike rack on the back of your van and hauling your bikes with you? Bikes are definitely EMP Proof.
  13. I would probably focus on having enough resources to get to the nearest Emergency Shelter. I can't imagine walking 1,500+ miles in the snow without serious winter gear. But then, I'm a California girl. I don't do snow!
  14. DH often flies out of state/country for work. And, since he refuses to pay luggage fees, often only takes a carry-on. He is also cheap umm, I mean frugal so he always takes an empty water bottle to fill once he gets past security. He has a lifestraw bottle, and no, I didn't tell him how much it cost! I also have a couple of water purification tablets clearly labeled in a small plastic bag that he keeps with basic medications, along with individually wrapped sanitary wipes, and a mask. In his quart size bag for liquids, he also has a small bottle of hand sanitizer. One small
