It is too good to pass up! It’s a great site and if I can help let me know.January 6, 2013 at 2:05 am in reply to: Potential Food Stamp Legislation . . . No More Junk! #436076
I’ve been on food stamps and was VERY greatful for them when we had them. This is a tricky topic. Food Stamps are not free food for all of us.
My husband and I both have blown out backs to prove it. Along with tax statements. Should we have been told we couldn’t buy a Soda with money we paid in?
should we tell the little old lady down the road, who worked and payed taxes when she could, that she can not buy a box of oatmeal pies?
But then there is the couple down the road, who don’t work and ain’t gonna work. For them, food stamps is free food. And ciggerettes.
And Beer. Etc. You see the kid’s eating potted meat and snack cakes while Mom and Dad smoke pot off money they made selling their stamps.
And it won’t do any good to test them for drugs. They’ll stop getting food stamps before they stop getting drugs and then it get’s worse on the kids.
Yes, the old lady should be told she can not buy them. And no, we shouldn’t have been able to buy soda with them.
Just like everything else,the people trying to do right carry the weight for those who do wrong.
They shoplift, we have to have a hack saw to open a bag of peanuts. Pay higher prices and have security eyeball us like we may be stealing.
dinners are not healthy but they keep a lot of kid’s and old folks fed.
It’s much better to eat a peach cobbler made from scratch than a peach flavored, pre packaged, chemical filled, snack cake.
I think all pre-packaged candy,cookies, chips, cakes ,pies and sodas should not be allowed on food stamps and People receiving food stamps should have to be educated on cooking from scratch with real food.
I know some parents will still sell their food stamps and buy the junk. But, it makes them work a little harder to do wrong.
Having a hard go of the Harbonger. Just not my cup of tea. I read the three books from the Hunger Games and VERY much enjoyed them. I’m now reading a Louis Lamore book. You know how people have comfort foods? His books are kinda like that to me. Been reading him since I was about 12.
Freezing! Not beach weather by a long shot!
Hey there! I’m from Florida but it’s feeling more northy like out there tonight!
I hope my husband kills a deer tomorrow because this is the first thing I’m making if he does!
Well, I’m glad they found the leak!
Your menu sounds sooo good! Everything. If it were the choices on a menu I would drive the waiter or waitress and my husband nuts trying to decide what I wanted to eat.
Thanks FreebieQueen. I did see these before posting and intend to try some of them out. I also found some lemon preserving recipes that sound super interesting.
1/4 cup salt, more if desired
Optional Safi mixture:
1 cinnamon stick
5 to 6 coriander seeds
3 to 4 black peppercorns
1 bay leaf
Freshly squeezed lemon juice, if necessary
Sterile 1-pint mason jar

Preparation1. If you wish to soften the peel, soak the lemons in lukewarm water for 3 days, changing the water daily.
2. Quarter the lemons from the top to within 1/2 inch of the bottom, sprinkle salt on the exposed flesh, then reshape the fruit.
3. Place 1 tablespoon salt on the bottom of the mason jar. Pack in the lemons and push them down, adding more salt, and the optional spices between layers. Press the lemons down to release their juices and to make room for the remaining lemons. (If the juice released from the squashed fruit does not cover them, add freshly squeezed lemon juice — not chemically produced lemon juice and not water.*) Leave some air space before sealing the jar.
4. Let the lemons ripen in a warm place, shaking the jar each day to distribute the salt and juice. Let ripen for 30 days. To use, rinse the lemons, as needed, under running water, removing and discarding the pulp, if desired — and there is no need to refrigerate after opening. Preserved lemons will keep up to a year, and the pickling juice can be used two or three times over the course of a year.
Evidently, this brew is great for rubbing on and putting in baked chicken among other things. Sounds sooo good to me~!
The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn.
I have a friend in Main who comes to visit every Spring. He has called three times urging me to read this book. So I am. Honestly, I like the Bible for Bible stuff. Not into Bible fiction. With that being said, it’s interesting. Makes you think and read the verses mentioned. Although it’s fiction, it’s not…
My husband knows I’m crazy. He buckled me in and drove me most of the way himself. :0)
As for cook books though, I have my Mom’s and my Gramaws.
And also, three recipe boxes with gramaws old goodies hand written. One is a recipe her grandfather wrote for swamp gravy. No, I only think your crazy if you answer yourself.
And I occasionally do…
O.K. Gotta get some rest. I read message as massage!
How does this work? I’ll be working next to Walgreens tomorrow. Do I just take the stuff to the counter and let them swipe my rewards card?
