We are on a huge food storage kick right now. Tuesday night, right after they announced the city was closing down, I wanted to try to make jar bread for food storage. In order to make it, you must use Knox gelatin, not eggs, to allow for a longer shelf life. I headed for the store which was already a mad house. I thought people might not be out until the next day, but sure enough there was a million people there, no buggy's (shopping carts) to be found, and everyone loading up on water, non-perishable food, and batteries. Seriously is this the first hurricane season all of my neighbors have been through? Don't they know this can and usually does happen at least once during the hurricane season. So I go to get my Knox gel and got out as quickly as I can.
I make the banana jar bread. Next we make 7 quarts of cooked beef. And I've been working on getting my recipes fine tuned. My calling is 2nd counselor in Relief Society which puts me over food storage and our Bishop has asked each family to get 3 months supply of food by September 2nd. Neal and I have made that goal with Bishop's storehouse food BUT I came across a DVD from a Sis. DeWitt out of Arizona that put a whole new, easy, and dare I say, fun way to get prepared with a one year supply of food. Let me know if you want a copy - you can't download it anymore from the Internet.
I hope everyone else is having nice weather....at least let Florida inspire you to prepare and get your food storage started!

Seriously, she was all about eating that cake.
The last picture taken before she was put into the sink for a bath. She did eat a lot of it, but she wasn't too messy. I only had to clean up the high chair and her. (I've had to clean blinds and walls in years past.)
Captain Eli helping decipher the treasure map. It ended with a pirate pinata to hit. It was crazy! Thankfully Neal was the one holding the pinata not me. We were inside and there was nothing to hang it on except Neal's arm. I don't think I'll do a pinata again. Thankfully no one was injured.
We had a family party on Saturday night during Morgan's first birthday party. Thanks to everyone for all the fun toys!
