What's For Dinner

I recently found out that someone else in our neighborhood is eating their food storage also. I was so excited and we talked at length about what is motivating us to do this. Their family has been doing it for a little longer than we have and they are having great success! It was fun to visit about what is working and what is not. It's amazing how much better you feel when not everyone thinks you're crazy.

It occurred to me that I haven't been putting on here what we've actually been eating. Here's a few things: peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, canned fruit and canned veggies at most meals, tomatoes, cukes, zucchini, peas, beans, strawberries (all from our garden), milk (just mixed up some more powdered tonight), burritos with dehydrated refried beans, bbq chicken sandwiches (we had some frozen chicken, but you could easily use bottled), rice and beans,soup, tuna fish, and just tonight we had spaghetti. I asked my family if they felt that we were eating differently and they said no. It's probably because we still have treats and we have chips in our storage as well.

Here is my FAVORITE food storage treat:
6 c. rice krispies
1c. sugar
1c. corn syrup
1 1/2 c. peanut butter
Mix the last 3 ingredients together and heat until bubbly. Pour over the rice krispies. Press into a greased 9x13 pan. You can add m & m's or chocolate chips. I even added about 1/4 c. cocoa powder to them and they turned out great! Not very healthy, but yummy every once in a while. If I get enough time this week, I'd like to try a cheese recipe I got. It uses powdered milk. I'll keep you posted!
