I'm Back? ~

I'm not so sure that I'm very good at this blogging thing. But I'm going to give it another try.
Mostly because I have met people that are already preppers and those that want to be and they really don't know what to do.
We had a July 4th party and because the holiday fell on a weekend, most of our invitations came back no to the RSVP. Except 2. One was from our former neighbors whom we love and the other was dear friends of my husband's. I was truly concerned because we were all at different seasons of our lives. Our neighbors are knee deep in young children and the Mr. is in the corporate world. Our friends are going to be empty nesters next year and have a thriving business of their own. And we are self employed with a house full of kiddos.
But as the night progressed, I realized that God put us together that evening for a purpose. All the kids had a great time playing in the dusk before the fireworks began. And we adults had a fantastic time talking about politics and food storage!
Our friends the empty nesters are LDS, but really don't use their food storage. They just know they are covered for their family and extended family and their fine with that. Hummm...
Our other friends had heard of food storage, but that's about it.
Neither knew that we had a garage full of food and most of our recipes include stored food.
I was so pleased that I was able to share my (not so vast) knowledge about food storage with them.
So, I'll be sharing some of the insight I have and would love to hear your feed back as well. We all can learn from one another.
See you back here soon!

  1. Do you know about Safely Gathered In? go to The writers are LDS, and like your friend, have a great deal of storage. One of the many things I like about the site is that they often have recipes and ideas for eating out of food storage.
    Thanks for your comment on my site! I LOVE comments, and it is fun to have new people checking it out.
