As in all things that we are looking forward to, it can never come fast enough. My dream of traveling the USA may be put off another year. Many things are going on that may prevent my escape into a different way of living, but I won’t bore you with all that. I will continue to move forward toward the goal, and since it’s all in God’s hands anyway, I relinquish my time table to his wisdom of when the dream should move forward … the timing will be perfect.
To keep myself on track I have been scouring cookbooks and my recipe collection (which is infinitely smaller since I have gone through it and all but threw everything out) for meals that will dehydrate well. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not planning on eating nothing but dehydrated meals, but I do want to have a supply on hand for emergencies. Not so different from being in a sticks and bricks is it? I believe we should be prepared for emergencies wherever we may be. And it’s also nice to have something available for a quick meal when you’ve returned from a long day of hiking, biking, or whatever you’ve been doing. Just adding some boiling water to a dehydrated meal would sound pretty good, wouldn’t it?
Along that line of thinking I thought perhaps it would be a nice feature to add a recipe section to the 2Dogs blog, so I will be working on that as time allows. Between my transcription job, downsizing, and what seems like a continual stream of postings on the local swap and trade Facebook site and listings on eBay, I keep pretty darn busy.
My first attempt at dehydrating something with a lot of liquid in it is drying away as I write this; What is left from my electric pressure cooker batch of Coconut Curry Butternut Squash Soup. Might not sound good to some of you, but I assure you it is delicious.
Lastly, I would like to announce that the Kinship and Courage book series has been taken. Enjoy Roberta, these books are very good reads.
