Emergency Preparedness Giveaway

Over on "Totally Ready" blog, they're having a giveaway for some neat preparedness items. You may be interested in some Ebooks on preparedness or the new version of "Making the Best of Basics". I have the first edition of that book and over the years, have used it a lot! It has some really good recipes in it as well as tips on making due with what you have and things you can store ahead of time so that riding out a disaster isn't as hard as it otherwise would be if you didn't have these items.

I miss you, too!

Have you ever dehydrated eggs? They just cost way to much to buy and ship that way, but I just stumbled on to somebody who said they scrambled them and dehydrated the scrambles. Others dehydrate then can in pint jars. Any thoughts?

Wow, I've never heard of it, but I'll bet it works!
I know you can cook hamburger, chicken, pork, beef, etc and dehydrate it and it works just fine.

I'll have to try it!
Thanks for the heads up and if you get to it before I do, let me know how it turns out for you.

The only thing that I can see is that with the commercial eggs, they probably aren't cooked first so they will work in thickening baking goods. I'm not sure how these will work, but if dehydrated very well, you could powder them up and then see what happens.

I'd do a small amount first and try them plain, in a small baking project - like cake in a mug and then see how it works/tastes.

Hey Darlene,

Thanks for the comment at my blog.

I realized after I offered those asparagus seeds that I can't find them anywhere!

If they reappear, I'll get your contact info and send some. :)

If you come across any asparagus seeds, they seem to grow very well that way.
