  1. Have done a lot of dehydrating, stocking up at the grocery store and ordered stuff from LDS and off Amazon. Also ordered another magazine (clip) for my pistol and trying to find a holster (belt), whatever will be comfortable for me to carry my pistol. I did get a pistol permit.
  2. Doing a lot of dehydrating and putting stuff in mylar bags. Had gal. bags of whole okra in the freezer and its in the dehydrator now.
  3. Ordered a lifestraw and heirloom seeds. Have dehydrator going again with tomatoes and bell peppers then I will do more celery.

Went through my pantry yesterday my put my box potatoes, hamburger helpers and cake mixes in mylar bags for long storage. Ordered more quart mylars and O2 absorbers today. Got a lot of other things done just cant remember all. Have 8 more lbs of chicken to do tomorrow and going to grind some wheat and make rolls so I can get the recipes down pat. This book "Recipes from the Old Mill" by Sarah E. Myers and Mary Beth Lind is a real good book.

  6. I keep like 6 cartons of shelf stable and if it gets close to date I mix it with reg. milk or cook with it. I also store powdered milk.
  7. I get lazy then something will happen (like elections) and its like someone lit a fire under me. LOL

Picked up a 3 ring binder and dividers and printed off recipes using food storage.
  11. Broke don't to smaller portions 7 lbs. of brown sugar and vaccum sealed it, bought 2 qts local honey.
  12. My grain mill will be delivered today plus my 3 food grade buckets, bags for in buckets, oxygen things and I ordered 6- #10 cans of wheat from the LDS site and just ordered 40 lb. bucket of wheat from Sams. Went to Sams today and picked up things for us to use now plus 3 - 4 gal. jugs of water, 6 cans beef stew, 4 lbs. brown sugar and 50 lbs. white sugar. I really feel like I have done a lot this week.
  13. Mt_Rider, no not my canning stuff but would love it to be. Coming from Ohio and moving here 31 yrs. ago I never dreamed I'd be living through so many tornados, hurricanes and earthquakes. Woke me up that no matter winter, spring or summer ya have to keep prepping. Some folks in Northern states only prep for snow, not down here, its ice, etc. year round.
  14. We had a 3.0 here in Alabama the other day. About the Tuscaloosa/Jefferson county line. Nothing major but when ya live close ya wonder how big the next one will be.
  15. I have already cooked, deboned and froze about 40-50 lbs. of chicken leg quarters but went today and bought 30 lbs. more which I may can. Aldis is opening here next month! Boy I can't wait.
