  1. If they are not backed up they do not have stuff in stock.
  2. Well since I can't edit the above post I will just add a second review down here. So the Liberty Bell Potato Cheddar Soup was a bust I mean it was a big fat ZERO out of Five and I was ready to chunk the remaining three packs but hubs talked me out of it. Today we had Granny's Homestyle Potato soup and had just the opposite issues. It was bland. I mean this would make the perfect sick bed bland soup. I had to add salt, pepper, and butter. I even added sour cream and cheese. It was still really watery. If I had some potato flakes I would have add them to thicken it up. T
  3. Several years ago hubby purchased a sample pack of Food4Patriots I put in our overflow pantry thinking we would try it one day. Well today was that day. The temp has dropped and I was in the mood for potato soup. We had been discussing ordering more so that we could have them for camping supplies. I pulled out the cheddar potato soup and followed the instructions. First... it was really watery. Second...Way too salty Third...tasted like it was made with sour milk. We have kept it at the recommended temperature so I am not sure what is wrong. I don't think I
  4. Lindi, check out Hamony House foods. https://www.harmonyhousefoods.com/ They have TVP and it is not bad. I ordered the sampler box and was pleased. Well except for the jalapenos, they had the seeds in them so they were too hot for my taste buds. I am thinking about just stocking their sample packs because they are the perfect size for me and hubby. We have used their soups while camping and that was awesome. I discovered if I divide the pack between two thermos and add boiling water and let them sit all day we had a warm meal with very little work.
  5. Gravy and biscuits are my go to dinner or breakfast. It makes that left over one piece of sausage feed two people. When the boys lived at home it was Saturday morning breakfast. It was cheap and filled them up...you know three teenage boys and their hollow legs. I have a bullet smoothie maker that sits on my counter. It gets used for a lot of things and gravy making is one of them. Gravy the glue that holds fills those empty stomachs. Oh don't forget that Red Eye gravy. My grandmother used to say even though it gets it's name from the reddish color, it is really for t
  6. Bump. Was reading over this and it dawned on me I have no baby meds. It has just been me and hubby or our adult kids for what seems like forever, now grandbabies are here. I need to do a baby first aid kit.
  7. Hmmmm....Looks like the stuff my son and I get when we wear t-shoes without socks. We're allergic to the glue they use to glue the shoe together. Heck if that is covid toe we have had it for 30 years.
  8. So I have a small herb container garden, the sage and Rosemary are thriving. However, due to the heat the parsley and basil are kind of stunted. For once my cilantro gave up the ghost. Usually I have cilantro until the first freeze or later depending on if I forget to cover it or not. I am going to have to replant the cilantro, we use A LOT of cilantro. My lettuce is also stunted, which makes me sad. I was hoping for fresh garden salads by now. I am hoping with a grow light I can keep the herbs growing inside this winter. I have gotten used to cooking with fresh herbs and am enjoyi
  9. I was scrolling through the discussion forums and this one hit me between the eyes. Most of you know our battle over the past few years. Hubby becoming disable aka loss of income. Yeah he is getting a monthly check but it about half of his original salary. I took a cut in pay to go to work at the local hospital just so we would have benefits. My job at the church paid $5 more an hour but no benefits and if we had bought into Obamacare it would have cost us $1200 a month for crappy coverage. Then last year both of us diagnosed with cancer, me- complete hysterectomy and him having his prostate r
  10. Oh Ambergris, I wish I had known you were going I would have given you a better route than through Atlanta. We lived in Lillington NC which is half way between Ft. Bragg and Raleigh, NC. We were about 35 miles west of I-95 for seven years. We made the drive from Lillington to B'ham, AL about a gazillion times over that seven year period. I hated going through HotLanta (Atlanta) and refused to drive that leg of the journey.
  11. Well, bicycles are non existent around here. You might find like bikes for 4-6 year olds, but anything bigger you are out of luck. Potting soil went fast along with seeds and fruit plants. Things on store shelves still hard to find: canned goods staples like flour, corn meal, baking power, yeast. oh and powdered milk. I live in a large Hispanic area so the momma's around here do a lot of cooking from scratch. Meat but not as bad as it was. You just have to shop early in the day. Still hardly any reduced meat. And the prices...OH MY! Cleaning supplies fishi
  12. When making your mask make a pocket in it so you can add a filter. Use an ac/heater allergy filter. Cut it to fit your mask pocket. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Filtrete-16x25x1-Healthy-Living-Advanced-Allergen-Reduction-HVAC-Furnace-Air-Filter-1500-MPR-Pack-of-4-Filters/37532019 Also the blue shop disposable towels are good. Coffee filters work in a pinch but the blue shop towels are better, but the air filter is the best. Instead of the flat pleated mask try the more form fitting mask. https://www.prettyhandygirl.com/best-fit-face-mask/ Instead of elastic you can u
  13. Things gone missing from shelves that I am just now noticing.... bicycles games like cards, board games, etc puzzles wood burning kits kids pottery wheels arts and craft stuff period! home exercise equipment i.e. free weights, treadmills, yoga mats, the bands used for stretching, oh and those yoga balls.
  14. Items here in short supply even now flour any kind yeast oatmeal cream of wheat dry cereal dry beans rice canned meats, like tuna, cornbeef, beef tips, chicken pasta period...any type of pasta - pasta salad, mac&cheese, or just plain pasta. Forget finding whole wheat pasta. powdered milk oil canned veggies, like hominy, greens, field peas, black beans, pinto beans, anything except green peas, green beans and corn those can be found with no problem. sugar, unless you want the organic pure cane sugar that is like $8 a po
  15. So with this plague upon us(the stupidity or virus you choose) I have started making bread at home again just as a stress relief. I mean where else could I pound something. I was having a hard time getting regular sourdough starter to work here in the panhandle of Texas. I tried several and it just wouldn't rise. On my last attempt of starter I also made friendship starter. While searching for the recipe for friendship bread I ran across a site that many different variations of friendship bread. I have made the lemon poppy seed bread, cinnamon rolls, regular sourdough bread and today I made ba
