The other day a friend of mine gave me a tip that you can obtain an entire case of bananas from most Wal-Marts in the nation simply by contacting the Produce Manager and asking them to take their old bananas off of their hands. The standard cost is only $5! There are instances in which some of the Wal-Marts have elected to donate their used produce to Food Banks or other community help centers, but it’s certainly doable a lot of the time in many areas of the U.S. Regardless of how you feel...

When I make cornbread, I always make extra and then I’ll make cornbread croutons for this particular salad. It’s a nice twist on the same old boring side dishes and it’s got a little bit of a spicy, sassy kick to the flavor as well. The recipe is even better when I’m able to quickly make it from my freeze-dried produce. I also like how it uses herbs and spices that I can have on hand in my indoor herb garden or freeze-dried. This recipe does taste better with fresh ingredients, but I've used...

Mineral Oiled Eggs2012 All Rights Reserved Preparedness Pro I thought I'd just share a few pictures with you so that you can see what the "old" eggs look like. I purchased these eggs the first week of February when they were on sale. I oiled them with warm mineral oil and put them in the carton and put my own date on the egg carton too. As you can see in this picture, I dated them February 9th and the expiration date on them was a little later in the month. I had some sausage that I needed...

If you’re experiencing a problem with mice now, just wait until there’s a time that regular sanitation services aren’t available. The mild winter, flooding, and record heat have created a perfect storm for the mouse population. If you see signs of one in your home, there’s at least 34 others…for about 3 weeks anyway, in which time another litter of 4 to 6 are bred and the female then immediately  begins gestation again. Though the average lifespan of a mouse is 18 months, in that time they can...

This is my variation on a rice dish--something to jazz things up a bit with a side dish. It was inspired by the food I ate out in New England. Moosewood Restaurant is in Ithaca, NY but the whole food feel in all of their dishes is what I truly crave. So give t his a try. It's GREAT to stuff vegetables with such as green peppers, artichokes, eggplant, squash, zuchinni, and even grape leaves if you want to keep it all Greek. Enjoy!   Greek Pilaf--inspired by Moosewood Restaurant 1 C. minced...

Let’s take a look at what’s really going on with this growing season, the drought, and the extremely high temperatures. I posted a comment on Facebook the other day about drought conditions and some smart-aleck said “So? We lived through them before, we’ll live through them again.”  I do not want anyone to panic,--this is a panic-free zone, remember, but for this lady to make such a flippant comment concerns me for a couple of reasons…where there’s one there are many who also have this laissez...

Going Underground with Your Garden? Now she's really gone crazy!   Perhaps you've never conceived of an underground garden.

With today's escalating meat prices, I thought it would be timely to share an alternative protein source that you can easily raise yourself just about anywhere, with only 10 minutes a day of effort, and at a minimal amount of expense--Rabbits!   Rabbit meat can be used in the same manner as chicken, even going so far as frying it as you could chicken. It’s also a great source of high protein and low fat, even more important in the present economic stage, rabbits are very inexpensive to raise...

Note from Preparedness Pro: The article below is provided to us by Dennis Chalkus of  DCSurvivalKits.com He addresses the wide use of social media amidst a disaster. I personally believe that social media can easily be a reliable protocol that you can set up with your family members to use and it's one of the only ways I know to make sure that teenage family members are kept abreast of a disaster and the necessary action plans that need to be executed. How Emergency Services Across the World...
