Weekend Roundup: The 'I Forgot to Post Last Week' Edition

Not a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and wondering why we Mormons make such a big deal about food storage? Explore the Provident Living home page here and Humanitarian Aid and Welfare here.

Also, everyone ought to check out the March 2009 edition of the Ensign, a Church published magazine. In it are three articles dedicated to food storage and self-reliance: The Parable of the Ten Virgins, Becoming Self-Reliant Spiritually and Physically, and Family Home Storage: A New Message pretty darn awesome. You can download the March issue as a pdf file in it's entirety here.


I Dare You To Eat It has a great idea about using your dish washing soap containers for storage here, I will definitely be adopting this idea, she also has several water storage links for those who are interested.

Have you ever needed cake flour but didn't have it in your pantry? Preparedness Brings Peace has a recipe here and also a common substitution list here.

For those of you who are confused about the difference between white wheat and red white, What's With All The Food? has a great comparison post up here.

A new website has popped up, dedicated solely to exploring the different types of flashlights. So if you have any burning questions about flashlights and which kind is right for your family, head on over to Emergency Flashlight Now. You don't have to respond now, that's the actual name of the blog.


We have finally set up a feed burner on this here blog, to deliver posts via email. I have transferred everyone who was on our blogger email list, as well as those who emailed but didn't make the cut...because blogger only accommodates 10 emails. So, if you are interested in getting our posts via email, add your email to the feed burner on the right hand column. You will have to confirm this decision by going to your email and clicking on a link provided by feed burner.


Wow. That's a lot of links. I hope I didn't mess any up.
