  4. Kitchen Basics
    My husband travels for work, but packs his own food to save money adn to keep him from eating junk all of the time. I have a dehydrator and am looking to see about making him some "instant" soup or rice type meals that he can add boiling water to and let sit for a few minutes. Any...

    What things do you add to flavor your Couscous? I haven't had it for awhile and bought some. I have some dried cranberries. Would that be weird?

    My husband had ADD and it makes it very difficult to keep the house clean and organized. He leaves tools, chemicals, paints and potions in the strangest places like...the window sill in the dining room or the shelf above the bathroom sink. He says he needs visual ques to remind him to do...
  9. Baking Breads
    We've been experimenting with a "standard" bread recipe that's half regular bread flour and half whole wheat. We usually add flax meal (2 tbsp) and sometimes wheat germ, though the latter tends to make the bread more "fragile" and it breaks easily. I'm considering experimenting with corn meal...
  10. Stockpiling
    I was looking over and going thru my stockpile after I added to it this week. I thought I had enough for 3 months but while it MIGHT last 3 months it would be very hodge podge. So I've thinking out of the things that I have what do I need more of and what have I totally neglected to buy extra...

  15. Candlemaking
    Right after it's completely melted and when you are adding color? Before or after color? What works best---fragrance oils or essential oils? Can you add regular perfume?

  17. Money challenges
    I challenge everyone to add a little to the emergency fund in June! Lets brain storm how to get it there and document our progress! I auto draft $50 weekly but I'll try for more. It looks like dh will be having his knee done so I see storm clouds on the horizon!
  18. Stockpiling
    All this talk of stockpile got me to think. Wheat, rice and beans are all well and good but don't forget some of the comfort things as well. Put a side a few treats. A bag of m&m's will be like gold to a child who has gone months without. Also think about these things too First aid kit...

    So, I went in for my ovary removal on Friday. The surgery apparently went well, but recovery has been hell! I have had 4 different surgeries revolving around basically the same theme, and even my hysterectomy was nowhere near as painful as this is. I called the doc to ask about med for the...
