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 .

Our Soup Project

Everyone was here for Thankskgiving this year so we  vacum sealed enough soups for one hearty meal a day for a year for everyone.  I ordered the beans/rice/lentils/spices/ etc for it.    I took 6 recipes X 60 for 360 meals.  We  sealed them in two meal portions to save on bags with the instructions on the front of the packet.  It took us the entire day but it was worth it!  We made 2230 meals.  We were tired but the end of that day!  (More pix at the end.)
