Dehydrating veggies

Yesterday PrepDad and I had work to do in the Big City so we had a chance to stop by a discount food store  and stock up on some canned things for the next 3 months. They had a great sell on carrots and celery . I have been experimenting with my food dehydrator and saw a video about making your own soup mixes

I pulled a half a bag of limas and a bag of green beans from the fridge and each got their own drying rack

 so: celery, limas, green beans & carrots in today's load.  Next up potatoes. The video said to put the ingredients in a jar with an oxygen absorber , chicken or beef bullion and spices . when you want soup just add water and rice, barley or noodles.... sounds like a plan!

Let's see how I did with my to-do list this week

1. Continue decluttering  I am so proud of myself today. I was in the mater bath and tossed  stuff I knew we would never use and filled another box with stuff to donate to the local woman's shelter.
2. Continue work on fire pit (this project will probably be postponed until next month.  the bathroom remodel is costing more then we planned)
3. Continue work on bathroom ( sort of)
4. apple sauce
5. apple pie filling
6. make and can ketchup
7. Check and treat water storage
8. plant spinach/kale
9.Hit the discount store int he big city for canned goods we are running low on
10.  transplant aloe

Press in and Press on,
