Went To A Yard Sale...

Had to go to Dollar Tree early this morning and seen a yard sale. I just had to stop. Glad that I did. Found these 2 oil lamps and got them for $2.00!! What a deal that was. I love how they can be hung. Will really come in handy. Now I really need to stock up on lamp oil since I have so many oil lamps. Trying to find the lowest price on it. I know Family Dollar has big jugs of lamp oil for 4.00 a bottle. Not sure if that is the lowest price I can get or not. Anyone know where to get it cheap??

Hiding Things In Plain Sight

Our house is way too small. I have had to come up with different ways to "hide" things around it. One of the ways is to use trunks! I have an antique trunk that is out coffee table and it is full of food storage and stuff. I also have wicker trunks that are stuffed full. Trunk at the end of the bed that is stuffed. Just trying to come up with ways to put more things in this house is a full-time job. Our shed is full. The closets are full. Under the beds. LOL I have rubber made totes that I just throw fabric over to hide them as our night stands. When you have a small house - you have to come up with ways to store items that does not have them out in the open. So I hide it all in plain sight.

Homemade Whipped Cream

Oh boy! I guess I made the worst mistake on Saturday that I could have ever made. At least that is what my husband told me. I FORGOT TO GET WHIPPED CREAM TO GO ON THE STRAWBERRIES THAT I BOUGHT! WOW! I just forgot. I let it slip my mind because I really do not like whipped cream on anything. Well, our son had the car and was out of town so we had to come up with something. Hubby was crying like a baby. So I had to get into my food storage and make some whipped cream. The photo is when it was about halfway done.

It worked great.

Homemade Whipped Cream

Put your bowl and mixer blades into freezer for about 15 minutes before using.

1 cup of powdered milk

1 cup of ice cold water

Beat this until stiff. Then add 4 Teaspoons of sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Beat this until well blended. and then serve over your strawberries.

Keystone Canned Meat - Finally Got Some...

To Try!! And I have to say that it is not too bad. I really liked it a lot. I got 4 big cans for $6.48 a can at Walmart and each has 9 servings. 2 canned beef and 2 canned chicken. I also got a smaller can of the chicken to try out. We just opened the can, I drained the chicken stock into a freezer bowl to save for soup sometime, and added BBQ sauce and we had sandwiches. YUMMY!! I will be buying more of this. You can do so much with this canned meat. Make soups, casseroles, etc. Possibilities are endless. Great way to add to your food storage and give you something good to eat.

Trip To Walmart - Bear Creek Soup Mixes!!

We finally got to a Walmart this past Saturday. Have not been to one in almost a year. We were wanting to get some of those cans of Keystone Canned Beef and Chicken to try out. ( Post about that tomorrow!) We found these Bear Creek Soup Mixes that have 8 servings and are only $3.00!!! A lot of the food storage places online have soup mixes like this and they offer less servings and are about $2 - $3 more than this. So, if you are looking for a low cost way to build up your food storage this would be the way to go.
We made a package of the Creamy Potato soup for dinner that night. I have to say - IT is awesome. I have tried some of the food storage companies online and this is better than those. Creamy, thick, and really filling. It was full of diced potatoes. I loved it and so did hubby and the kids. This is a winner. I have other flavors to try out also and a couple of other brand of the soups that look good. Walmart have a huge selection of these. We will be going back and getting them all!! This is a great way to frugally add variety to your food storage. The Prepper's Pocket Guide: 101 Easy Things You Can Do to Ready Your Home for a Disaster Ultimate Family Preparedness Pak

This Present Life: Travel Distractions...er...Games

This Present Life: Travel Distractions...er...Games

I know that this is not a normal thing to post to this blog, but I really think that it is a great idea. Make some up to put in your kid's bug out bag. Keep in the car. Use for homeschooling. So many ideas. Kid's are going to be nervous and scared if an emergency happens so they are going to need things to take their minds off of what is happening and these would help. Get the kids distracted with  these so the adults can focus on the danger.

Food Storage Recipe - Sloppy Joe Pizza

Something a little bit different , but that can be easily changed up to use your freeze drieds and dehydrated foods.

 Sloppy Joe Pizza

 1 pound of ground beef or ground turkey or use your freeze dried meats

1 large onion or use your chopped freeze dried onions

3 thinly sliced carrots or use your dehydrated

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 can of diced tomatoes that are flavored with garlic

1 package of refridgerated pizza dough or better yet, make your own

 parmesean cheese

 preheat your oven to 400 degrees. fry up the meat, onion, and carrot until meat is done. Drain the fat and add the chili powder and cook for a minute longer to get it all around. Stir in the tomatoes and bring it to a biol. Than lower the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes, uncovered. While that is simmer get the dough out and put on a slightly greased pan. Bake it until it is lightly golden brown and then top with the meat mixture. Put the cheese on top. I also sometimes add shredded mozzerella cheese and then stick it back in the oven for a couple of minutes to melt the cheese. Yummy.
