Comments on: Food Storage Class Wrap-Up http://sharonastyk.com/2009/01/29/food-storage-class-wrap-up/ Finding the keys to the future...and trying not to lose them in the mess. Wed, 27 Jan 2010 16:26:24 -0700 #?v=2.8.4 hourly 1 By: Mark http://sharonastyk.com/2009/01/29/food-storage-class-wrap-up/comment-page-1/#comment-18364 Mark Thu, 19 Mar 2009 15:36:04 +0000 http://sharonastyk.com/2009/01/29/food-storage-class-wrap-up/#comment-18364 Speaking of diving in to know what you do not know, I started my bulk purchase with 100 pounds of organic brown rice. Turns out brown rice should not be bought for bulk storage because it spoils quickly. Whether the rice self-oxidizes or can last for while with oxygen packets seems to be an open question. I don't intend to eat five pounds of brown rice per week, so I will donate most of it to the local meals on wheels, if they will take it.

"I'm a fly by the seat of my pants kind of girl." That means if I grow something in the garden and it doesn't work I plant something else. If I'm cooking and don't have an ingredient I use something else. It's how I learned to bake bread, sew, paint (pictures-probably could use some lessons), and just about anything else I do. I make plenty of mistakes but I usually learn something and its always an adventure. Next thing I want to do is make cheese, do you think the city would let me have goats in my back yard? Probably not.

My 20 month old Eli's battle cry is, "DOO-DAH!" and I'll be taking it as my own as well! Nothing like watching my little guy chase a 4 year old around while ferociously waving a spatula at him and yelling "DOO-DAH". Occasionally he'd stop and randomly smack a large pad of paper with it, then continue the chase. It was wonderful! He still yells it all the time... So, bunt to the whee and DOO-DAH!

I finally got to cheese making, sourdough and sprouts. I mentioned zombies at least 6 times. I did more material on community issues (no, I haven’t forgotten about the handouts to allow other people to teach and distribute material in their communities - those will go up as soon as I get the printable formatting write - I have PDF issues - hopefully in a week or two). I’m hoping that all of this means that there are legions of emissaries out there talking and teaching about food security, and building up their pantries (I always wanted some legions ;-)). It makes me feel more secure and hopeful about the world.
