Learning to dehydrating

Thursday, August 26, 2010
With all the research that I have been doing I am learning a lot of stuff that I can use on my homestead later when I am up and going.
I found a great website for dehydrating food, it is Dehydrate2store. This site will help you learn how to store food for long term along with recipe and ideas for using the dehydrated product.

The weather is cooling down a bit but still, I did a bad thing two weekends ago, I re injured my knee and so am back to square one. Not going to be doing anything outside since we are going to be moving at some point.
My main goal right now is to get as much as I can made for my grandson that is on the way in Oct. This is what I did tonight. Right now I am working on a crochet blanket and some cloth diapers. I am going to have to get more fabric to make anything else.

I have made two weeks worth of meals most of them are based on what is on sale this week or what I already have on hand. If you would like to take a look at them they are Crock pot week and menu 1 This one is base more on what is on sale this week. By making my menu base on what is on sale the week before I know what I will be able to make, so I am one week ahead at all times. By doing this and not going out at $40 to $60 a week we should save up to 700+ dollars in three month if not more.
The hardest part is going to be not going out all the time on the weekends like we have been doing. I am not going to buy any yarn for crocheting unless I run out( like that is going to happen in three month)
This is the outfit that I have made for my 4th grandchild
This is what I do in the evening while we Watch TV or a movie, or while DH(darling Husband) is on the computer. I will work on more stuff in the evening and on weekend now that I am not going to be going out any where. We spend most of the day in our room where we have a AC to help fight the 95° to 105° temp that are here.
