Ok, this is week two of the EPIC BLIZZARD of 2011 or as some are calling it SNOWMAGEDDEN 2011! I'm ever so thankful that I stockpile shop! I had to actually make up something last weekend so my husband had an excuse to leave the ponderosa and check out the roads.
I still don't need to grocery shop but my stockpile will be a bit depleted after this is all over. We have been eating like kings though. I've been able to keep to my menu as I typically have a two week delay between eating and buying. Plus, I always have a few meals that I always keep handy for those just in case nights that are quick and easy. Things like soup and spaghetti and a few frozen casseroles.
It's been nice to know I don't have to venture out and fight the crowds at the grocery store. I can just follow my menu and feed my family. Plus, I purchased most of the food with coupons on sale so I'm saving money too! That deserves a little happy dance!
I actually had time to make the world famous bar-be-que sauce that I've been meaning to make. I've been buying the items when I could get them on sale and finally had them all together. I put up twelve pints so that should keep us for this year. I can it so I don't have to store so much in the fridge. I just put it into the canned food pantry along with the summer produce and fruit. Here in Oklahoma, it's also a great quick gift for someone. Everybody loves bar-be-que and everyone is always looking for the best sauce. My son thinks I should sell it.
I'll tell you the bar-be-que story tomorrow. It's full of intrigue and is steeped in family history! Oh great, another family story.....
