I would encourage you to do something every week to help with your personal preparedness. Learn something, buy something, teach something or do something. Doing a little each week will pay off .

FRIDAY - Learn Something New


Since the recipe this week was about bread, I think I will share something I learned last summer. I learned how to cook bread on the barb-que grill. It worked!
The heat is pretty intense so it must be pre heated and then tuirned down. I put my bread on a cookie sheet on the grill part. I closed the lid so the heat would be maintained and cooked it. It took about 8 mins longer than my oven, but it worked! I did burn my first 2 batches until I got it adjusted. The problem is the direct heat coming from the bottom. The flames must be kept at a minimum while the bread is baking.
When it was done, you could smell cooking bread all over the neighborhood and soon there were people knocking at my door!
I would suggest practicing this to get a feel for it. This is a fun project!

Paula,
I just love your blogs. This is probably one of my favorites. I am a food storage junkie. This is the 4th Ward that I have been called into cannery and preparedness specialist. Love all your great ideas everyday of the week. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

(Heehee) Sounds like--if this turns into "survival cooking"--you'd better bake enough for the neighborhood!

Or, maybe start classes to teach that bread-making to them??

Blessings,

Bruce

I just found your blog today. I really enjoyed what I've read so far. I had never heard of baking bread on my gas grill. I think I might have to try it. I make all the bread for my family too. I was sick and bought a couple of loaves. We ended up making French toast with them. We just couldn't bring ourselves to eat them. Thanks for sharing your talents with us.

Just happened upon your blog. Baking bread on a BBQ? That is impressive! I have a solar oven and it's great for baking bread, too, outside the conventinal way. http://tinyurl.com/cckxmb PS: your crock pot yogurt sounds delight, but I couldn't seem to find the recipe for it...
