Why Food Storage and the like


This blog comes to help us all deal with FS questions and to build up from a starting place & build a more complete and full FS & how to be more Self Reliant. Let us all get Prepared & ready for anything that may come our way. You never know when Mother Nature, Man Made Disaster or Money Problems may come and you would need your FS to get you through! I will talk about Emergency Preparedness also!

I started Food Storage over 15 years ago. I have taught many classes and been a speaker and helped many people over the years. This is a place where I can state things or address issues I want to cover.

Nutritional Idea for the Month

Nutritional Idea of the month: Serve Ice cold Water with your meals. If you need to have something other than water make some Fresh homemade lemon aid, instead of soda.

Lemons, sugar and water. The most simple lemonade recipe, and yet so refreshing. Your drinks don't have to be complicated to be refreshing. Make up a jug today, and relax on the patio.

Simple Lemonade Recipe:
6 lemons 
6 cups cold water 
1 cup sugar
Juice your lemons, and you should get about 1 cup of fresh lemon juice. You can use bottled if you must, but the flavor won't be as crisp. In a large pitcher, mix lemon juice, water and sugar. Stir lemonade well and serve over ice, with a lemon slice or two to garnish.

2/3 cup water
1/2 cup Splenda granular
4 to 6 cups cold water to taste
1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 6-8 lemons)

In a large glass measuring cup, combine 2/3 cup water and the Splenda. Heat in the microwave for 2 minutes on high. Using caution, remove from microwave and stir the mixture to see if Splenda is completely dissolved. If not, return to microwave and heat an additional 45-60 seconds. Fill a pretty, large pitcher with ice. Pour lemon juice over the ice. Add the Splenda mixture and stir well. Add 4 cups (1-qt) of cold water. Stir well to blend. Taste and add additional water to suit your taste.
