Day 75 The Example of an Ant

Our family read Proverbs 6:6, 8 "Go to the ant...consider her ways and be wise. Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest." It is scripture from the Old Testament. Let us obey.

A kind soul(s) rang our doorbell and ran. On our step they left a fresh pineapple and a bag of lettuce. We will enjoy. I am grateful. Perhaps we can always store enough to share and make sharing a regular routine. After all the second commandment is to love thy neighbor.

Breakfast: Cornmeal mixed with oatmeal, brown sugar and dried milk
Lunch: The children pieced on leftover taco soup and cabbage salad
Snack: Frozen yogurt
Dinner: A Crock Pot meal of rice with pork loin, cream of celery soup, 2 TBS dehydrated onion and spices (I used an Asian Grill Mix that has sesame seeds, garlic, and a variety of spices in the mix.) Sides: Steamed fresh asparagus from the garden, lettuce salad from the Drop and Ditch Service, fresh pineapple, and Raisin Apple Pie with frozen yogurt. I overcooked the pie but it was good.


  1. A question I have is that you stocked up on fresh fruits etc before starting this and what would have happened if that had not been the case and you had to rely on canned fruit etc. Another thought comes to my mind that you should really have continued to prep but stored the food elsewhere not to be used. With my luck, if I tried this experiment we would have a disaster on the 90 day when all of our supplies were exhausted. Thank you for posting your experiences! This is really helpful!

  2. Hi Crystal,
    We bought dog food and it is 21.75 for 40 lbs.

  3. My husband only remembers part of the conversation he had with you on Sunday. He said you stock up on gelatin as it can be substituted for .....something. Do you know what he is talking about? I'm thinking you can substitute it for corn starch?
