My SS check made it into the bank today, so I reciprocated by a trip to the grocery store to get a couple things I needed for a batch of gumbo for tomorrow. I usually cut all the veggies the day before, as it’s a lot of chopping.
I was out of green peppers, so that was on the list as well as a couple bags of deveined shrimp…EZ peel they call it. This batch will use 2 lbs..
The gumbo freezes well too, as is part of my plan..to prepare foods like the gumbo, pinto beans, and chili in case hard times arrive…one cannot freeze celery for future use, and it is one of the main ingredients.
I picked up some Ranch Style beans too, a few cans of the with jalapeno variety…RS beans are a staple around here.
I checked my stock yesterday and found I had put away about 35 lbs of pintos and white rice in Food Saver Bags; 1 lb each. My 25 lb bag of AP flour arrived today without any damage, and that brings my stash up to 37 pounds. I am still waiting for the other 25 lbs of whole wheat flour to get shipped.
Lots of sugar; at least 40 lbs. Got my Tupelo honey last week too. I now await for the arrival of the fall cider to the store so I can make some more hard cider…I still need to bottle the other batch. I took a slug the other day…for testing purposes.
All the gas cans are full as well.
Now gotta find/make room in the deep freeze for the 25 lb bag of flour. I may get some oxygen absorbers when I cram that bag into one of my 5 gallon buckets, and seal it, after it comes to room temp in a few days after being in the freezer.
A few other odds and ends, as I made my major purchase last week in anticipation of the coming collapse, so the rest of my check will go to hit the credit cards.
I also got the oil changed on the wife’s car…it was only 1400 miles over…good thing we use synthetic in that car.
The storm did not have much effect on us here, just some light rain yesterday. The temps are back into the 90s today, with lots of sunshine.
I have looked at much of the news outlets to see that nothing new is going on…same finger pointing going on…the sheeples still being led around by the nose believing that the vaccines will save them…the democrat hypocrisy continues…the liberals are in a feeding frenzy, beginning to feed on themselves…we can only hope they destroy themselves from within…it could happen.
Madd Medic had an interesting post today about more swill from Swillary…her/its idiotic remark about divisiveness within the country, and blaming the January 6 antifa attack on the capitol on Trump supporters…
My response is this
We must be thankful each and every day that this bitch is NOT president.
