Default Doing the life thing

Advertise Here

Been quite a while since I posted on the forums. Life has a funny way of taking up your time like that. I'm still learning what I can about survival and preparedness, and doing what I can to make sure that I and my family will have basic supplies and the needed information to keep us a step or two ahead of the unprepared.
Just a few weeks ago I got the first of what I hope will be the needed year's supply of wheat that we will be able to grind into bread in whatever disaster, emergency, or major SHTF event presents itself to where we would need to be doing this.It was only a 26 pound pail of the grain, and I still have a way to go to get what is recommended, but still, it's a start.

I've also been checking out some YouTube videos on canning lately. I've already canned some bacon a while back, but haven't really done anything else.Well, that's all about to change.
I've been wanting to sharpen and hone this particular skill, especially since I like to cook. I've watched a number of different channels, covering all sorts of different food stores that can be canned, and have made a list of several that my family will eat. So over the coming weeks and months I'll be doing some canning here.

Another food related thing that I'll be trying out is taking some of our stored food items (both canned and dried), and trying a few recipes that I hadn't thought of till lately.Variety is important, and so this will be a new thing to try out.

I have a long list of other skills and DIY projects to try, and so I'll be doing a lot of those soon. As I do, I'll make it a point to get back in here on the forums to share with everyone here, and to start to take away great information from the posts of you all again.
Glad to be back, and looking forward to interacting and exchanging great info with everyone again.

Start by finding and printing up recipes of what you'll make with those supplies. Makes no sense to have a bunch of stuff you don't know what you're going to do with it.
