Melon Man has been having this feeling that we need to add more food storage. So, since today was a holiday for me, I decided to head down to Chandler (I always want to call it Cha-nand-ler from Chanandler Bong aka Chandler Bing on Friends) to go to the Honeyville store (which is over 100 miles round trip but so worth it!). Melon Man and Linda went with me. It was NOT a good trip for us...money-wise. How on earth did a cart full of #10 cans, 3 buckets in varying sizes, and a 50 pound bag of flour come to $367? It just does.
We got a number of new things that we didn't already have...some in multiple cans:
Freeze-dried cheddar cheese
Freeze-dried mozzarella cheese
6 grain mix
Shortening powder (we have one of these but it is really old)
Freeze-dried bell peppers
Dehydrated carrots (I hope these are better than the ones at the cannery!)
Sour cream powder
Sourdough bread mix (and it doesn't require a starter!!)
On the way home, we stopped at Hot Dog Heaven aka Der Wienerschnitzel and had an early lunch. It was nice sitting out in the sun and eating and chatting. We headed back to our house and unloaded. Linda left to run some errands and Melon Man headed for bed.
Have a watch of this video to see how easy it is!
So, I'm going to mix up a batch of the master recipe this evening and that, along with about 18 loaves of laundry, are what's on my list for the rest of today!
