Pink Slime

Did anyone see Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution tonight? He showed how the U.S. is adding Pink Slime to meat. I had never heard of this. I googled in Pink slime meat filler. If you've never heard of this check it out. It is worth the research!!!!!!!! I had never watched Jamie's Food Revolution , not sure if this was his first one, if not how long its been on. I have seen him on Food network and The cooking Chanel. When I go to the grocery I will ask what goes into the ground beef ! Please take time to goggle and read up on this!!!!!!!!!!!! Have a great day! Blessins',Lib

Pioneer Living

Sometimes I think I was born 100 yr's. too late. lol I enjoy the older ways ,and I try to keep skills , I learned growing up . I Love iron skillets, thats all I use. I enjoy old recipes altho most pioneer type cooking I do I dont have recipes for , or if I do its an egg size of a walnut that sort of thing. If for some reason you were face with having to make do and live as the Pioneers did ,could you do it? When we have Pioneer day or wkend, It still amazes me how much water is wasted daily, and how sad it would be if for some reason one day we were force to live this way, all the folks who would not have the skills to make it. I had some request for the dandelion recipe, I dont have a recipe , go to my side bar to ~~~Feathered Spirits~~~ Joyce Ann has nice photos and recipe for frying dandelion blooms, her blog is loaded with wonderful ideas. Thanks Joyce Ann for all you share:o) Hope ya'll are having a Great wk. Blessins',Lib

I fried some dandelion blooms today. I picked, washed, battered and fried them. Dh is not a big fan of wild food or veggies but he liked them .DS thought they tasted kinda like okra.

Hope everyone has a great week!

Stockin' Up

Here in our neck of the woods the economy seems to be double dipping. I always try to keep a well stocked pantry. Even more so with this economy. We've always lived the Simple side of life, we don't have huge wants,and when the economy tanked I think it was easier for us than alot of Family and Friends.

I know our Lifestyle is not for everyone, its a Great feeling to be debt free and less worry free lives. Sure we have daily worries and trails like everyone.We have some Family and Friends who are in their late 60s and early 70s who is so upside down in their home mortg. they'll never get it paid off., and owes more than they could sell it for.

One of our Local stores has been having some great sales can fruit and Can veggies .24-.29 per can, you have to buy 10 cans to get this price. We buy - by the case. We have been stocking our pantry. I Love to cook , we don't eat out alot .We Love picnics and cook outs. We have found we have more fun having a pot luck with Family and Friends , in the past we would sometimes meet up at a rest. now we meet here or someones home, everyone seems more relaxed and have more time to enjoy each others company.

I enjoy gardening ,canning, freezing, and drying alot of our food.

One store had a big sale on zuc. and yellow squash , I bought several , I dried them for soups .

I try hard not to have food waste. I plan out menus , I use left overs up one day it will be mashed pits. the next pot. cakes or shepherd's pie.

What do you do towards stocking your pantry?

The storms were bad the other night ,no damage here put other parts of town did.

Hope ya'll have a great day!
