I apologize for not keeping current with postings. It has been the two weeks before spring break and I have been grading, doing report cards, attending track meets, getting ready for after break, spring cleaning, and canning chicken. I also have to mention that I won a case of Mountain House Chicken and Rice in Bernie's first ever contest at his website the Apartment Prepper . Check out his very neat site. He has a lot of good information. Thank you, Bernie!. I am so thankful to have the opportunity to try this product and add it to my food stores. It was donated by Ready Made Resources. They have a lot of really neat prepper and survival supplies. I will give a review of the product when it arrives. I have never tried freeze dried meals before, so this will be something new for my family.
I did find a good deal last week on split chicken breasts. I bought two packages and canned up 7 pints of chicken on the bone on Sunday, and made stock with the rib pieces. I saved 2 breasts and cut those up and marinated them in a bit of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and salt and pepper. I cooked those up and we had chicken salad with bread one night. We had chicken soup tonight with the stock I made. The rest of the chicken that is canned is waiting to provide us with delicious meat for a quick and easy meal in the future.
