Any cheesemakers here?

by: WhiteSwan

Thu Jun 12, 2008 at 22:12:35 PM EDT

I'm thinking about making cheese, and perhaps making hard cheese (that keeps in storage) as part of my preps/food preservation.  Has anyone here ever made cheese, anc can you give some simple recipes and/or advice?

DH is starting to make wine--these would make SIP kinda fun! ;-)

Aldi foods that rate

by: beefman

Sat Mar 15, 2008 at 19:24:36 PM EDT

We have been taste testing some canned products from Aldi. We stock up every couple of weeks. We get a cart full of food for half of what we would have spent in a standard grocery. These are good: fruits, roast beef, corned beef hash, ravioli, baked beans. So far everything good, and some quite good. The roast beef in gravy will surprise you. You can also get staples like flour, sugar etc. More as we test foods..... beefman

This cake was popular during the depression, and does not have any eggs in it.

2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar

Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 to 40 minutes, or until tooth pick inserted comes out clean.

A better story to be in

by: lugon

Thu Mar 08, 2007 at 07:08:06 AM EST

(great idea! - promoted by DemFromCT)

Melanie at http://newfluwiki2.c... suggested Statistic won't work (...)  You have to give [people] a narrative, a story, to illustrate what that all means.  Maybe we could have the counterpoint to CanadaSue's story (a day-by-day recount of an unmitigated pandemic).  Not a story where Nature treats us kindly, but one in which we prepare and then respond in the best possible way.  Let's write it here and there.

UPDATE: follow up diary is here

Breads and Spreads

by: KathyinFL

Fri Jan 12, 2007 at 12:04:03 PM EST

Some folks say that bread is the foundation of life.  I don't know about that, but if you've ever tried to give bread up or had to do without it for any length of time, it sure isn't easy.  So if you don't have to, why should you?

SIP Snacks and Desserts

by: KathyinFL

Fri Jan 12, 2007 at 11:34:20 AM EST

First off, SIP is the opposite of "bugging out."  It stands for "sheltering in place."  People may, after a while, think is stands for "suffering in place."
