Item of the Week

Posted by imawheatwatcher on February 23, 2012

Every Thursday I will post an “Item of the Week” to assemble our Preparedness kits. Don’t worry if you have just started and we are half way through the list. This will continue on a loop so we will eventually get back to the beginning. Start when you can, do what you can, and we will become prepared.

Right now we are gathering items for: Food for 72 hr. kits

This week we are gathering 1 small can or apple or other juice per kit. Look for 100% juice.

February Wheat Watchers Meeting

Posted by imawheatwatcher on February 21, 2012

Welcome to Wheat Watchers! I am sorry I have been behind on the blog the past couple of days. Home life got a little crazy and it slipped my mind. No worries, all is fine now and I am back on track.

Here is the promised link to Homemade Hamburger Helper mixes. These are great because you can assemble the dry ingredients first and store in a ziploc bag. When you are ready to use it bring it out and VOILA!

Hope you enjoy!

Important Info. Tuesday

Posted by imawheatwatcher on February 21, 2012

Every Tuesday I will post a document that needs to be copied and put in your 72 hr. kits. Breaking it down week by week will, hopefully, make it easier to get it DONE!

This week we are gathering an inventory of our household goods (with pictures). This is so helpful just in case of a fire or flood.

This week we are gathering 2 granola bars for each person you are making a kit for. Buy bars made with whole grains for the most energy. Look for bars with vitamins and protein, but don’t worry if they have a high amount of fat. High fat foods are not going to be a concern in an emergency. One good option is energy bars.

Food Storage Recipe Monday

Posted by imawheatwatcher on February 13, 2012

Today I thought it would be a great day to learn how to replace oil and butter with beans in our baking. It adds more fiber and will make the treats a little healthier, especially if we are using wheat flour in our baking.

How to Use Food Storage Beans for Butter and/or Oil

Click the above link and come back and tell me what you would like to bake using this method.
