  1. Go to Pinterest and look up Westbrook Rose. Westie left us a rich legacy of info. Emergency Preparedness is my favorite folder, but I'ts all good. Sure do miss her!
  2. Looks just like the instructions from NCHFP so I'd say it's the safe way. Violet told me she always used the boullion in each jar so that's the way I do it.

    What Do I Want

    Before DH retired last year, he bought us all a Halo Bolt from QVC. It's pricey, but we have got our money's worth many times over. We got ours on sale for $80. I know that's a big investment, but we have jumped our cars several times, run fans during power outages (also CPap, charged phones, laptops, Kindles and many others I can't recall. I only charge my box maybe twice a year. They are small (about 7 inches X 11/2 inches) and easily fit in your purse or glove box.
  5. So sad to hear this. Praying for you Wormie...
  6. I really miss how easy the site was to use before our last upgrade. Its been a couple of years, and I have just recently figured out how to start using the site again. I've been having a lot if trouble with my memory, so it's hard for me to learn new things . I really miss everyone, so I'm trying to get started again.
  7. Thanks Kappy! Since this is my favorite dressing, I'll try it tomorrow. On the CHF diet anything to cut sodium is important.
  8. Thanks Midnightmom! I love seeing all the ornaments. 3 of mine are in the first picture. A felt Christmas Tree, a crocheted angel, and the bottlecap snowman from this year.
  9. So sorry this happened to Mrs. Wormie. We pray that God will ease her pain and also give her that peace that passeth all understanding. Prayers for you also Wormie for strength to handle the situation. Our world is full of chaos, but there's a better day acoming...
  10. I've seen people use the cut coffee filters or use a cupcake liner. I think it would be a good idea to do both. I've read a lot on the subject, but I still like to get info from someone who has actually tried it. I'm with you, I don't want to ruin a machine that I waited so long to get.
  11. I've heard a lot of people say they don't use their vacume sealer on jars with powdery stuff. Would sealing stuff like garlic powder be a good thing to do using the canister? Seems like having your flat and ring both on the jar would keep your sealer from sucking powder up in your machine?
  12. @ Jeepers- So you don't have to use new flats when you seal your jars like this? Isn't it funny that I just unpacked the box with my hand held sealer in it yesterday! I hope it still works. I have plenty of 4 oz.jelly jars. My silica jell pacs came in a couple of days ago so I will try using them in my jars that already have tight fitting lids. Thanks Sarah, I made sure they were food grade.
  13. I got mine from snapshotmiki also. Very pretty! I'm so glad you joined us this year Miki!!
  14. Sarah, I have always used loose rice in my salt shaker, but the holes in the shaker top are small sincethe salt is so fine. A lot of my spices are bigger pieces with bigger holes in the shaker top and I'm thinking the rice grains might come through. If not for that, rice would be the simplest solution.
  15. This is the best price I have found so far. http://www.specialtybottle.com/glass-jars/spice-herb/4oz-herb4w Maybe Old Time Pottery would be cheaper.
  16. Since moving about 2 blocks from the beach, I've been having a terrible time keeping my spices from turning hard. I thought maybe adding a silica jell pac to the bottle would keep them dry. I thought about changing the spices with the flip tops to screw on lids might help too. Anyone know what size packet to use? I have some 1 gram pacs, but they look awful small.
  17. Thanks Cat and Jeepers! It was easy to figure out with instructions. Hi Mt_Rider. I've been sick a lot the past year, so I missed a lot, but I'm trying to catch up now. Missed all of you...
  18. Jeepers, is it hard to delete books from the Kindle? I've been trying to figure it out for a while.
  19. Snow-Mom, Did you get my info? I guess it didn't get to you the first time.
  20. Please add me Snow-Mom. Christy, I'm always excited to see if your name is on the list! I'm pretty sure I mailed to you last year, and it was no problem. I'm glad to see Miki join us this year. I think DH enjoys it as much as I do.
  21. Thanks for the Birthday wishes! Sorry I was so long seeing it, but I have been out of commission for a couple of weeks.
  22. https://www.facebook.com/DIYPreparednessGetReadyNow/videos/vb.528130140664239/643982722412313/?type=2&theater Saw this on Facebook this morning, and thought it was interesting!
  23. Last year my cardiologist prescribed Aldactone to treat my heart failure. They told me that I would have to avoid all high potassium foods. Since all the foods above are my favorite foods, I was miserable for the next 9 months. (until he finally took me off of it)I gained more weight because all the healthy foods are full of potassium. Now I have a low calorie, low sodium diet plus limited to less than 2 liters of liquids a day, but that is still a lot easier for me than avoiding potassium.
