Baking Bread Part 2

The bread turned out pretty good and was gone by evening. LOL
I still need more practice. I did not think that the bread was "fluffy" enough. But, of course that might be just me. I am used to buying packaged bread.
I am still going to bake bread every weekend until I get it done right. I want to be able to bake bread good enough that if there was an emergency I would be able to do it with no problem. I am a firm believer that you need to learn to do things before it is needed!!!!!!

RV Living??

This might be something that a lot of us need to look into. It would be killing 2 birds with one stone. You would have transportation and housing in one thing.

Might be something to look into. I know that we could not afford to buy a new one, but might be on the lookout for an older one in good running order.

I DID IT!!!!!

With a little help from my husband. I guess I do not knead the dough good enough, but with his help with the kneading we have officially made our first real loaf of bread!!!! I am so happy. I will take photos of it in a bit. My camera is charging right now. I am just so happy , I had to share it with you all. If anyone has read my blog for any length of time , than you know that I have been having trouble with baking a loaf of bread. LOL

We used the bread recipe in this book.

Winterizing The House

Unfortunately, we have to spend another winter in this cracker box of a house. Which is much too small and too cold. So we have been trying to do some stuff to get it ready for winter. I spent the other day, which was way too warm and nice to be thinking about the cold of winter, wrapping the bottom of our small back deck with some black rubber stuff. My husband got it from his work - I think that it actually is supposed to be laid on the floor so that workers do not slip in factories. But anyway he got 10 of them and I put 3 of them around the bottom of our back porch/deck. To keep the wind out of the crawl space. We did not find out until this past spring that it was under there and does not shut up to well. So then we knew why the floor was always so cold. LOL
Next we got most of the windows in the house covered with plastic and I have new insulated curtains up in all of the bedrooms and living room.
Next weekend we are going to seal up the back door. We are going to try and do it between the screen and the door. That way we can still get out if we had too. Just rip the plastic off. But it will seal up the doors. A lot of air gets in our back door because the screen door does not seal up right.

MY WISH - the next house we get has a wood burning stove!

Starting To Feel Better!

I have been so sick with an awful sinus infection. And now finally after a round of anti-biotics and changing my diet a bit. (Cut out sodas, coffee, and sugars) I am feeling a lot better. I actually have a bit of energy. There for a month I could barely move.
Now I will be able to write more and share some of the stuff that we have been doing to get prepared.

Reasons To Have Food Storage


Let’s face it. The thought of food storage is a bit daunting right? We know, we get it. With that being said, the reason it’s constantly discussed and we’re pushed to get it done is because of how truly important it is. More importantly the uncertainties we face are out of our control, yet we have complete control on how we prepare for it.

At Wise Foods, we’ve explored, experienced and truly innovated food storage. The purpose of food storage is to be ready for any situation. Beyond a 72 Hour Emergency Meal Kit for ONLY $59 (Cook in the pouch entrees. 3 days/4 servings per day/ 20 ounce lunch and dinner entrees) - Order Today!, we’ve compiled the top reasons to have food storage.

Natural Disasters

Unfortunately for some, you’re put into a situation because of a particular crisis. This could be anything from an earthquake, flood, fire, hurricanes, tornadoes — the list is never ending it feels like.

Food Preparation

As you work to prepare your food storage plan, you’ll find that it teaches you about the fundamentals of food preparation. As you buy foods for your food storage you’ll notice certain foods have different shelf life, have certain types of preparation, etc. This makes you consider all types of things as you compile your food storage.

Emergency Preparedness

I can think of a handful of things we pay for on a monthly basis that are as important as food storage. We know they’ll pay off for us. We should all think about Food Storage the same way. Food storage is no different and will no doubt pay dividends when you and your family enter into a time of need or desperation.

With the current economic crisis going up and down, a lot have been left without jobs. As a way to relieve some stress, food storage can bring happiness to you knowing your family can have food on the table.
