To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time. ~Clara Ortega

Remember you are never alone

So I saw this video today and thought I'd share!

I just loved it. It is so inspiring.

Deals to Meals meal.

Deals to Meals is quite a spectacular blog- Shandra is great and  I just recently signed up for her program and I think its great. She is also doing a sun over giveaway! Hence me talking about her blog and how much i really do love it. I check it all the time for recipes and ways to use my food storage items to make meals.

So right now we are up to our ears in zucchini and while I was looking around on her blog, I found this amazing recipe: Chocolate Zucchini bread- (who doesn't want chocolate with their zucchini?) and decided to try it out.
So you can be proud of me at this moment because I practiced my food storing skills.
I whipped out my wheat that I've had stored away (that I've had for years and never opened...)
 and after about 2 hours of trying to pry off the dang lid, and finding out later that there is a tool to open bucket lids... I was good to go.  
I then pulled out my hand grinder, that i've also opened for the first time in years.
 and after an half an hour of turning the wretched crank, my arms where happy we had got enough ground wheat to bake the bread.

Then for the main course for dinner, we tried Shandra's  Tortilla White Bean Soup
It is made quite easily with food storage items and it is a soup that will get your taste buds a'dancin. 

Basically I've loved knowing about Shandra's blog, I have got so many ideas for recipes and grocery saving techniques. If anything you should take a look at her blog and see all the yummy recipes she comes up with.
