Canning and Drying and Pickling - Well, Mostly Dehydrating

Sorry I haven't been on in a while.  I've trying to figure out how to keep my preps where they belong, at home.

Things with the deadbeat got a bit melodramatic as she did something while doing drugs that had the whole hubby family up in arms, so the preps are a little safer.  Still, with my promotion at work, I now have a big locking file cabinet and room for personal stuff so I have some stuff stored there.  When hubby goes fishing, I bring the preps home and put them away where he wouldn't go looking for goodies.

Have done a lot of dehydrating - mainly strawberries and kiwi.  I have some potatoes that I plan to do up.  One thing is sure, I doubt hubby would be able to give away dehydrated potato flakes :).

Bottom line, though, prepping is going under deep cover.


There's a newish show on Space called Outcasts that has been pretty interesting - people fleeing a war and ecologically ravaged Earth, and trying to make a new start on a planet called Carpathia.  Hopefully it won't disappoint the way Falling Skies has.
