I am planning our purchases. We are out of Crisco, cornstarch, canned milk, and need to restock a number of items. If I had butter flavored Crisco, we could make cookies much easier. Someone even suggested using butter flavored Crisco for a spread. It would be a new purchase for me but would definitely help with the shelf stable menu.
The children listed their favorite 5-6 dishes of the last three months: Rice Pizza, Lemon Dill Chicken with Penne Pasta, Pork fried Rice, Pork lo Mein, Cheesy tuna sandwiches with tomato soup, and Chicken Alfredo.
Breakfast: Rice Pudding made with vanilla pudding.
Snack: The last of the Fruit Snacks
Dinner: Lemon Chicken with Penne pasta except I didn't have any penne pasta so used egg drop noodles, in place of the celery we chopped some asparagus, and I used the frozen whipping cream that I thought I would use to mix with the dried milk and didn't. It was scrumptious. A little neighbor girl joined us and ate four servings. She said, "This is delicious." My eight year old said,"You should live off your food storage too."
