Attitude is Everything

     Yes - Attitude is everything.  So what does this mean, especially during an emergency, disaster, or catastrophic event?

      After 35 years of educating, supplying, and encouraging folks for emergency preparedness, I am convinced and truly believe that the most important element in emergency and disaster preparedness is one's attitude.  I am also aware that in our society where personal responsibility and owning one's choices is not the essential value it should be, choosing an appropriate attitude is exceedingly difficult.  It is even more difficult during a situation where you are gripped with stress, anxiety, and fear.

     Clean water of course is essential for survival.  While it is possible to live for weeks without food, after 3 days survival is at great risk without water.  Make absolutely sure you answer the following questions:

Mixed FD fruits in pancake batter

by Barbara Lemm Apr 17 2011

I had a segmented container I used for a show to taste samples and it worked great until I took a turn in my car and it fell over and everything was mixed. I will put syran rap on it and then the cover next time!.
I mixed all my FD fruit (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, apple, peach, pear, mango, and pineapple) in a small container, then measured the water and put them in to soak for 5 min., then added my pancake mix and poured onto a preheaed flat cast iron pan and added a little butter to prevent sticking. Cook till bubbles are all around pancake, slightly lift to check how brown you want it and flip and cook till lightly browned.

Add a little butter and pure maple syrup and you will want seconds.
They were the best I ever had. I ate 3 and my husband ate 4. I know you kids will love them.


Which one is for drinking, instant or powdered milk?

by rachel mano Jul 05 2011

Powdered milk is what we've all known about when we think of storing milk, but nobody likes it! It is thick, you have to shake it up vigorously and drink it cold. It has a bit of a smell to it as well that people don't like. So what can you do with powdered milk? Well, it's awesome for breads and rolls.
Instant milk is wonderful for drinking. It has a thinner consistency, is easy to mix and doesn't have a smell at all. It is great for preparing ahead of time or on the spot.
When you prepare it, as the can indicates, the milk will be a lot like skim milk. To thicken it up to what you prefer, add less water and it will appear thicker like a 1% or 2%.
Try some of this great product and be sure to store some on hand to save you that last minute midnight run to the store!
