I have 2 lbs. of carrots ready to go into the dehydrator. My grocery order goes in today for delivery on Thursday and I have ordered 10 lbs. of potatoes to go with the 5 lbs. I have left over from the last order. So Friday I will cut the potatoes into 1/2-inch cubes and dehydrate them as well.
I am ordering a canister of raisins. I saw where raisins can be dehydrated so they can be stored for long term, so I am going to give that a try to see how well that works. If the experiment is successful, I may dry more.
Each order includes sugar and flour. I read somewhere that one of the first food items rationed during wartime was sugar. I haven't the space in my small apartment to store wheat, but have had success in repackaging flour in heavy duty Ziploc bags, filling buckets with the bags and keeping them in the coolest room. It takes a considerable amount of flour just to keep me supplied with bread. If I am feeding several family members, I don't want to run out of flour should I be unable to get more.
I also have another can of coffee coming. One just can not have too much coffee stored. :)
I haven't just been sitting on the couch eating bon bons and watching soaps while I have been on time off. As tempting as that might have been, I did manage to finish one window quilt top. Here it is. Not a very good photo, but I think you can get the general idea.
I know these are not your standard window treatments. But I like them. They are bright and cheerful and they make me happy. I can just tie them back during the day to let the sunshine in.
That's pretty much all I know today. Evil has not been on vacation so it is time to press on with the prepping. We may need it sooner than we think.
