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 .

WEDNESDAY - Food Storage Recipe

I have the best bread recipe. It requires very little kneading if you didn't have a mixer. It works great with white wheat too. This recipe actually won a Gooseberry contest.

Homemade Bread
Heat 2 cups milk (or use 1/3 cup powdered milk in hot water)
Add 3 tbls sugar, 1 tbls. salt , and 1/3 cup oil
Mix 1 tbls. yeast in 1/2 cup water
Add 3 1/2 cups flour to the milk mixture and mix very well - this is very important if you are kneading by hand as it gets the gluten started.
Add yeast mixture and mix well.
Add 3 1/2 cups more flour and knead until well mixed and dough is smooth.
Put in greased covered bowl and let rise until double.
Punch down
Let rise again (This helps it to be lighter)
Punch down and put in bread pans.
Let rise.
Cook at 350* for 30 minutes.
