When I counted the cases of home canned food sitting on the floor and came up with an even dozen awaiting shelf space to put them, I decided I had procrastinated long enough on doing some much needed rearranging to accomodate them. And Oldest Son (better known as my partner in crime when it comes to food storage) and I discussed yesterday on how to make the best use of the six cases of quart jars now stacked against a wall in my kitchen. I have lots of pint jars full of beef, pork and chicken that was cut into one-inch pieces, but have very lttle canned in large pieces to use as roasts. So the plan is to watch the grocery store sale ads and fill at least half of the quarts with meat. Which will also need shelf space to store.
Considering that I move with the speed and grace of a herd of turtles and considering that at the same time I need to do an inventory to see just what I do have already and what I need to fill in the gaps, this project will likely take me the rest of the week. I shall return Monday.
I still plan to do the experiments with dehydrating rice and pasta, but that has been postponed until next week.
Until then, pay attention. There is so much going on around us these days and not much of it good. Contine to pray and prepare, my friends.
