Re: Using Your Food Storage......Recipes and Ideas
The nacho cheese is way more than 3.00 now. Not sure, I think the last time I bought some it was about 8.00. Never bought the pizza sauce, so don't know.

I think the soap worked great. I did whites first without bleach so I could tell if it worked and even the dirty socks got clean. The only thing that didn't was my white (I know, dumb color!!) slippers. I tend to forget and wear them outside in the morning when I let the critters out! They're really gray now.

Hey, guys...if you watch the Rose parade, all the Lubbock schools got together to form a city hs band and they're the only band in the parade this year from Texas. They should be pretty good. All the schools have great music depts. I hope I can get the station to come in that day!

Thanks for the cheese info. Guess I'll just stick with what I have. Everything has gone up SO much.

lol on the tv. It sounds like you live in an awesome place. Must be way out.

I'm a homemade soap virgin! I don't see how it would clog the lines, though. The water from the washer would dilute it way down, I should think. I don't have to worry about it though, our's goes out to the trees as gray water. This stuff should be way better than what I've always used.

Re: Using Your Food Storage......Recipes and Ideas
I was reading about your soap on the other thread. Have any of you used it long term? Reason I ask is that I made it years ago and used it quite a bit. Then I read a thread on some forum that someone was saying it stopped up their lines. It gelled, or coagulated? They gave a reason for it, and I don't remember the reason, but I quit using it after that. Never had any trouble with mine though. Wish I hadn't read it because I liked it but don't want to deal with clogged lines if it's true.

I have used it for over a year. I am on septic and havent had a problem. I dont use the dishwasher and fabric softener cause it has vinegar and will neutralize the bacteria in the septic tank. Shitty subjectlaughcry

Re: Using Your Food Storage......Recipes and Ideas
We used to have a dish, but got rid of it for lots of reasons. We just have rabbit ears right now and they used to work really well before the switch to hd. Now, not so much. Hubs wants to put an antennae in the attic, then the wind won't get at it. It seems lots of people do it here because of the wind and the lightning.

How interesting. I thought they had to be outside to pick up reception. Makes sense though. If you can get a signal with rabbit ears inside, of course you could an antenna. Duuah. Never would have thought of it!

Remember back in the day when we had two or three channels and one of them might be too fuzzy to watch and they both went off like, what, midnight, 1? lmao Kids today would be so traumatized.

Re: Using Your Food Storage......Recipes and Ideas
Remember having to get up and turn the dial to change channels or change the volume/contrast/tint/color/everything!!! AND...when the dial fell off, turning the channel with a pair of pliers! My kids actually experienced all of that. When we moved here, the former owners left an old b&w tv. We even had to remake the rabbit ears with hangars!! They hated it, but it was the first time for tv in their bedroom! The boys really hated it 'cause it was in big sis's bedroom. If they weren't nice to her, she wouldn't let them in to watch the ONE channel she could get in there! Then I'd hear...MMMMMOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMM...

Re: Using Your Food Storage......Recipes and Ideas
Really ought to be storing food that you routinely eat.

If you don't like rice & beans now, you ain't gonna magically develop an affinity for them "when the time comes"...


Hope you aren't "buying" your expectations. Expensive freeze-dried meals in #10 cans will taste good for a while, but the food isn't the nutrition you could have by cooking from scratch.

Pretty easy to buy whole grains by the 25 or 50lb bag at healthfood store, or maybe bulk section of your grocer's; or go to farmer direct, feedstore, or farmer's Co-Op. Buy new 5 gal paint buckets with gasket seal lids from paint store or hardware store, get a 2lb brick of Dry Ice, and Preserve Your Own Grain For LongTerm Storage...

If you're gonna use rice, and you really ought to, the rice you want is Brown Rice of Shortgrain variety. Organic is best. Any organic grain is to be preferred. Brown Rice is a SuperFood with tremendous nutrition and makes Complete Protein when combined with beans.

Paint bucket holds about 35lbs of grain or 20lb of Oats.

To preserve your grains, do 5 or 10 buckets at a time. It's easy! Fill all buckets 1/3 full. Have your grains in bags ready to go when you come home with your Dry Ice/CO-2. Wrap the block of Carbon Dioxide in a towel or sheet and smash it into chips with a hammer. Spread about 9 chips on top of the grain, cover with another 1/3 layer of grain, add more chips and fill almost to top. Add last layer of chips and place lid on loosely. After 30 mins CO2 will have gassified and replaced the air in the bucket. Then you hammer down the gasket lid and label your contents.

Canned meats, tomatoes, peanut butter (natural or organic), herbs & spices, canned fruit, coffee, canned beans, pasta, powdered milk or carton packed rice/almond/soy milk etc, honey, maple syrup, salt, pepper etc.

Just about everything you use now, if you regularly "cook" (from scratch, not microwave meals) will store longterm really well.

If you have a freezer you can locate so it is in cool location, you can likely keep your food when power goes by running generator for an hour daily, at night. If you have a generator, get several 6v or HD storage batteries and an inverter so you can be charging batteries when run the genset. Get the most from your generator time that way.

Not any real need to have lots meat with your meals. An ounce or two for flavoring maybe. Stir-fry is great and uses very little meat. Soup, gumbo, ragout, goulash, and even porridge and hot whole grain cereals like oatmeal & farina can be adapted to meals. Grits is especially good as is corn bread loaded with extras.

If you have enough $$ to consider buying freeze-dried stuff, consider your options. A visit to healthfood store that sells lots of bulk supplies will open your eyes....

Good luck~!

Thank you so much.

AC 44495061 there were some great contributions there with some really nice links.

The time might be right for some money saving mixes and "making do" with substitutions.

Re: Using Your Food Storage......Recipes and Ideas
for those of you storing canned foods instead beans, rice etc. I found some great cook books that have brilliant ideas for using your canned foods

They are made for men who can't cook

They are called
"A man, a can, a plan"

[link to www.amazon.com]

I have found mine at thrift stores and used book stores
