I have been thinking this week about making your own mixes. I always think of them this time of year as the weather starts cooling down finally. I start to think about getting ready for winter. I start feeling like a squirrel, they work very hard burying the walnuts. Are they setting the example for us?? I think it is a feeling of all is safely gathered in. When a winter storm was on the way as long as everyone was home and safe it mattered not how many inches came.
I saw this and thought that we all would benefit by having this recipe, I also think now that we have it why buy it again? http://thehumbledhomemaker.com/2013/02/homemade-allspice-alternative.html

How are you coming on you food storage challenge (which is it be actively working on your storage)? Do as much as you can by year's end. We have had plenty of ideas on how even with low budgets one can work on this goal. I love hearing what you have done. Try to do more prudent things. Live on less then you make and be actively gathering storage. President Hinckley said do the best you can. Would you be willing to eat in more and the money saved use on storage? Just a thought.
