Three 5 pound bags of wide noodle pasta on sale at Sam's club, spending the after noon sealing them up in Mylar. Went next door to Wal-Mart stumbled across 6 boxes of 12ga 3 inch magnum #4 shot in the clearance isle for $6.99 per 25 shell box. 'Cha ching in the cart.

True, they do not sell this everywhere, but go to this link
http://wheatmontana.com/dealer.php
and look at the Walmart Links to find where it is sold.

Hope that helps,

Went to my friends parent's house with 3 of my boys plus daughter in law. Helped pick 3 wheelbarrows-full of concord grapes. My friend processed the grapes for about 40 gallons of juice.

Came home and cut up apples for dehydrator, about a half bushel.

Used only food storage for dinner. Turned out great.

Ordered some seeds:

Dill's Atlantic Giant Pumpkin. I wonder how many quarts of pumpkin I'd get out of one of these? :-)
Pink Banana Winter Squash.

Tomorrow going to pick up some more soup. A local store has Campbell's Chicken Noodle and Tomato on sale for 60 a can, no limit. Not as good as they had it a few weeks ago (50) but still not bad at all.

Smile Happy chickens laying healthy & tasty eggs

Fed our free-range chickens organic layer feeds, purchased from the good folks at the Point Arena Feed store, with crushed oyster shells and powered dried egg shells, reset the mouse trap inside the chicken run that houses the two coops, and enjoyed the finest tomatoes on our good earth, right from our vines.

Feeling grateful.

Canned some plum goo, used the right amount of sugar, pectin and lemon juice, used the right amount of plums, it was plenty thick when I turned the heat off and started ladling it into jars - now I'm waiting to see it all the pectin works. Plum jam is a terrific substitute for honey or syrup on a waffle or pancake, but I'll use it as plum syrup if I need to!

Today I cut down a maple stave for a longbow project I'm planning. First attempt at anything bow related, but I'm an experienced woodworker.

Just loaded the dehydrator with sliced apples. It's too hot here to grow apples, so I buy big bags at Sam's and dehydrate them. Can be turned into desserts, side dishes, or part of breakfast. Very versatile.
Making a list to replace items we have rotated through.
Going to my first gun show this weekend! So excited!

Bought some new tires for my Jeep (doubles as my BOV), fixed my old cell phone (so now I have an emergency back up), and did more canning. 2 quarts and a pint of pears.
