And....More Snow.....

Funny - but when I told our youngest we were supposed to get more snow today, he was less than enthused :) Probably because he is already home and these snow really do nothing for him - wasted snow days....


Anyway - went and filled my car up, got coffee and am home all day today - have a cobbler in the oven, bout to make some of that hot chocolate mix and then kick back...


But in the making of the cobbler, realzied something - I NEED MORE SUGAR. Not that I am out or even close to be running out, but I dont keep enough on stock. Nope - not at all. I mean, I can go lay my hands on 50# and that doesnt count the stuff that I have packed or other varieties (only the white stuff) but we go through it fast.


I dont buy carbonated drinks. So, around here, you can drink water, juice or milk. Unless you make the Kool-aid. And the hubs likes Kool-aid so there is a lot that gets made around here. Those little packets really take a tole on my sugar stash.


All this to say - if you stock Kool-aid or any other little mix - make sure you have an extra stash of sugar to satisfy. Because I would not be a happy camper in the least if I went to make a cobbler and all the sugar was gone....humph.....


Pray - Praise - Prepare

I'm wondering if those people who do the poles and say that Americans consume xx# of #s of sugar are reporting those that actually consume it or buy it. You could be skewing the percentages. Just an observation.

I've got a lot of sugar in nitrogen packed pails. We almost never use it, but the Mormon food storage calculation program said I needed it , so.....

Ugh, snow... I sure don't miss that stuff. But if it comes with sunshine, I'll trade ya for this cold (ok 50 to me is cold!), gray drizzle we've been having. No wonder the suicide rate is high in the Pacific Northwest, this weather is depressing....

I added sugar to the list for next week. Got some but can always use more. Moving and re establishing food storage sucks.

Mother.....

Hermit - that makes me laugh :) If you dont use it, it may be worth its weight in gold one day.

Mayberry - I love cloudy, rainy weather! Its the deep South's humidity that makes me wilt.

TOR - I do not envy your move - what a nightmare. At least with mine I can do it a little at a time and oversee it myself. I wont have to get rid of anything and start over. Of course, all this moving will make you SO appreciative when you are finally an owner and not a renter!

The past 2-3 weeks seem to have been a combination of snow, sleet, freezing rain, 30+ MPH winds or cold rain....except for the day after torrential rains when we had flooding! What ever happened to cold, crisp, sunny winter days?
