    I will be trying this with a combination of ground beef and goat. I think goat tastes a lot like venison so should be good. Thanks for the recipe.

    Thanks for the feed back. I too often set time goals rather than pounds or inches. I don’t blog about food but I sure enjoy watching and reading about it.

    I also enjoy making it, especially home made bread. Really makes it hard to keep to a certain weight. My job makes it a bit hard to make it too often so it balances out.

    Keep up the good fight!

    I do a version of this with sausage and potatoes. One of my favorite meals even when I’m not camping.

    There are (to my knowledge) no stores in my area that double coupons. I have been told that Kroegers in south Louisiana does but the closest one of those is several hours drive. I don’t use coupons that often as I don’t get the paper and don’t have the time or patience to hunt them up and organize them. If I see one on something I buy, I’ll print or clip it, but mostly I just look for good sales and stock up when possible.

    I really like that so many can be made with dry ingredients and then just add hot water. For a camper, hiker, or prepper this is great. Also for teachers, secretaries, or anyone who needs a quick way to get a pick me up with out taking up much space in the purse.

    I know this is an older thread but had to put in my two cents worth. I have been solar cooking for about four and a half years. Most people think it takes all day.

    Not always. It depends on what you are cooking. I did a great Parmesan ranch mushroom dish today.

    It was for a slow cooker and called for four hours on low. I did it in my home made Copenhagen cooker in about an hour and a half- 2 hours and it was bubbling. Started at 9:30 melting the butter in the pot in the sun.

    At 10 I stirred in the ranch, mushrooms, and parm. It was ready by 11:30. I left it in the sun to stay hot til lunch, then the family scarfed it down.

    A newbie here to the site but not to stocking up. I stock up on tp and coffee. tp because i have a daughter (grown) who forgets to put it on her shopping list then hits up my stockpile.

    (this happened even before i had one) and coffee cause god and all heaven forbid i have to give up coffee any time soon. i am blessed with some land for a garden so put veggies every year. it is strange how when i was kid i hated canning and now that ping is one of my favorite sounds.

    Yes, but it can be time consuming and messy. You need hard wood ash, water and a bucket. Put the hard wood ash in the water in the bucket and let sit.

    It is considered ready when a fresh egg will float in it. Strain out the ash and use the water. It is much easier to go get the lye from the hardware store.

    Easier to measure for certain. Your soap may be too soft or harsh with home made until you get the hang of measurements. I started cp soap making when my history students wanted to know “how’d them people get clean?”

    Boy did that lead to some research and fun times! Now I make soap a couple times of year and even have a few teacher friends who want me to show them a simple recipe.
