Chicken & Dumplings from Storage

Eating from your storage/emergency food may appear daunting at first.
Many waste their storage food instead of making amazing and delicious dinners for the family.

This is made from Potato powdered soup mix
Follow the directions on the box for adding water amounts and cooking times.
Add veggies - I prefer to use frozen or garden fresh if available
Canned chicken
Limited amounts of pepper

Take a package of biscuits
follow mixing instructions
add mix to boiling soup mix, after everything is mixed in, one spoonful at a time.
Cover and cook on low for 20 minutes coating biscuit mix lightly with sauce to insure even cooking.

I topped mine with a little pepper and it was as yummy as any Chicken dumpling dinner I've ever made and so much faster and easier to prep!

Now a blogger that I love who writes Stark. Raving. Mad. Mommy
She wrote a post titled, Not enough Ketchup in the world!

Where she goes OFF on the foodie community for the food trend predictions for this coming year.
I would write it ~ but how she wrote it ~ WAY to funny!

My take on it - I want to see each predictor EAT the foods THEY predicted!
I wouldn't!

Soup & Cherry Cola w/ Stevia

 This time I ordered from Prairie Moon I ordered the following flavors
  • Root Beer
  • Lemon Lime
  • Cola
  • Cherry 
Now I am brand new to this having only made the Root Beer & Orange Pineapple from P.M Co.
So this was to be a time of trial and error
My first idea was to make a full syrup of Cola and a full syrup of Cherry 
(following the made with stevia instructions w/agave)
mixing them together.
New favorite, new love! 5 stars!

As for the soup
many people don't know how to use food storage food as every day food
Which is a waste - why buy food to store and then have to throw it away every so many years?
Instead every now and then pull it out make a few dinners and then replace
This way you know how to use your food storage plus your not wasting it!

I started with the power base soup flavored "Broccoli & Cheese soup"
Followed the water to powder guidelines
then added in leftover cubed cooked chicken
and about 1-2 cups of mixed frozen veggies (corn, peas, & carrots)
1 cup frozen broccoli
1-2 tsp crushed garlic
a dash of pepper
topped with grated cheese

Winters Breakfast

Waking up to snow (more snow then all winter put together) I was in the mood for something hot and yummy!

I know I haven't posted much lately - I have been so busy lately trying to get the house back into order. Later I will be posting my own mix of soda (combing cherry soda and cola - to make my own stevia cherry cola!)

Breakfast this morning was wheat toast, maple sausage & provolone cheese.
Vanilla coffee & coconut creamer

Treasure the simple moments in life. When you look back over your life it won't be the "big" moments you smile over, but the small ones filled with love.
