      My husband asked me to redo my Food storage 91 day menu to include once a week planned left overs so I didn’t have to cook on Sunday and also add in some family favorite meals I had left out.

      We came up with this plan after our crisis this last year. We had what we thought was a years supply of food and then when the crisis hit we started living on it 100%. In crisis mode none of us was very good at being able to think what to do with what we had. When the crisis ended 4 months later and I had time to think, I decided to not just replenish what we had used but come up with a plan in case we ever got in crisis mode again. I first thought of the 91 day plan (13 weeks) and planned it out and DH was deployed so I e-mailed the plan to him and he approved it but added a note to make planned left overs each week and have leftovers on Sunday so I had a day off. Then we started to remember meals we’d had that we liked but had forgotten about so we stretched it out even farther. We also know during the summer month’s we’ll live mostly from our garden, stretching it even farther. We have Quite a bit of what we need but once I get all the recipes in place for the menu’s and do a master grocery list then we’ll know exactly what we need and once we have it all stashed away we’ll know we really have a years supply that we can live on without getting tired of the same few meals we could think up on our own! No one is screaming “do we have to have that ever week or every month because now we all have our favorites listed and they know it will roll around 3 times a year. We raise most of our own meat except I confess my chickens have become pets, I know I could never eat one of my Hen’s. Now the turkeys we raise each year I have no problem with! Same with hogs and cows. I think if we got some Roosters I would reach the point of being more than happy to have for dinner but my lovely hen’s have definitely became pets to me!

      If you ever get hit with an earthquake and can’t get out of the house/apartment quickly the best place to be, is laying right next to your bed or sofa. It everything collapses those will compress down but will normally leave at least 6″ of space. That is your best shot at surviving when it all comes crashing down. Not a sure shot but the best one should you ever find yourself in that position.

      I feel so bad for all those folks down in Haiti who have struggle so hard even before this terrible earthquake. My GGGrandfather was living just at the edge of New Madrid, MO when the biggest Earthquake to ever hit the US happened. I was able to listen to his journal as a translator I hired read it to me in the State archives. The 2 month’s following the initial quakes was a harrowing ordeal that leaves me with nightmares about the next big mid west earthquake hits. They said an earthquake at 6.2 anywhere in the midwest would leave the US from Mexico to Canada from New Mexico East to the Appalachian’s would be without electrical power for a minimum of 3 month’s. That alone would bring much suffering, if it was bigger and we actually had damage what will happen. No one knows but if you don’t have what you need, it might be a long time before you will be able to get it.

      That’s a worse case example! You could find your self in a minor crisis like we did this summer and have no money if you lose your job, your bank acct gets cleaned out. Maybe you get sick and end up in the hospital. So many of us are just one paycheck from true disaster! Make your home an old time general store with everything you need including the bank they use to have!

      That’s incredible that you could make all of this without going to a grocery store? I truly can not imagine more than two – maybe three weeks at most without a grocery store. Even in the summer with my little garden, whatever grows well, the neighborhood groundhog seems to enjoy. This list certainly is inspirational for me. If there was ever a major disaster here in my area we would probably make it longer than any neighbor that I know, except for a farm up the road, but not thirteen weeks. Are there any veggies that groundhogs don’t eat? Lol.

      We need to be ready for any crisis that hits us. I’m hoping for a milk cow this coming year. 4 month’s of drinking powdered milk and using powdered cheese let us know we’d sure rather have the real thing! I’ve actually learned now how to make a milk substitute out of almonds that’s much more drinkable than powdered milk. We used our powdered milk more for hot chocolate and blender ice cream. Those things we really enjoyed. We put in raised beds made with cinder blocks and lined it with very small chicken wire before putting black fabric down and filling to keep the moles, ect out of our garden and it worked! When starting out stashing food & supplies don’t worry about getting a long term supply. Just start simple and try to get 1 week supply first then build up to a 30 day supply, then try to build up to a 3 month supply. It’s better to have all you need for a shorter time period then a years supply of flour when a crisis hits. That was the first lesson we learned. We both lost our jobs and quickly used up everything except wheat. Ended up being soft wheat so we couldn’t even make bread out of it. Have fun stashing away but come up with a plan on how to use it and make sure you’re stashing the right stuff!

      I don’t have a plan quite like yours, but I do have a list to help me come up with daily menus when I draw a blank! I made a list of all the entrees I have made or plan to make for my family. I broke that down into sub-categories as follows: Beef, Chicken, Pork, Fish, Casseroles. Then I further broke it down by separating recipes calling for cooked meat (Beef, Cooked Beef; Chicken, Cooked Chicken, etc.). Then there arethe Soups, Side Dishes, Starches (potatoes, rice, barley, pasta, etc.), Vegetables, Salads, and of course Desserts! I also sub-divided ethnic foods such as Italian and Mexican (family favorites). This works out really well for me, especially when I am at a loss as to what to make for dinner! I just check to see what I have on hand, then I check my list to see what my options are! It has been a really big help for me, and it has also kept me from getting into a “rut” with dinner menus! 🙂

      I was wondering if you had recipes for your list and the grocery list. I mean, I don’t grow my own stuff and don’t hve my own animals, but I do stock pile and can live for about 2 months on what we have if my hubby would follow the directions! LOL….anyway, if you do have a recipe list and grocery list, I would love to see it! Thanks so much for what you have done. It is fabulous!!!
