"Our Heavenly Father created this beautiful earth, with all its abundance, for our benefit and use. His purpose is to provide for our needs as we walk in faith and obedience. He has lovingly commanded us to 'prepare every needful thing' (see D&C 109:8) so that, should adversity come, we may care for ourselves and our neighbors, and support bishops as they care for others." (All is Safely Gathered In pamphlet)
This week I have been doing a deep clean and organizing. I cleaned my jars and put pasta in six of the jars, the pasta was on sale last week.
This is the first mix, it is my favorite mix, it is like Bisquick. The whole book is full of recipes using this mix.
I also made up the mug mixes, these are favorites of ours as well...
You take a dry cake mix (any flavor you like) then add a dry angel food one-step cake mix to it, stir well, then I put it in a half gallon jar.
To make it, you put three Tbsp of this mix into a microwave safe mug then add two Tbsp water, stir well and microwave for one minute.
The flavors I use are chocolate, lemon, orange, strawberry, and spice.
We like chocolate chips in the orange one. In the lemon, we like to top it with cherry pie filling after it is done. We also like fruit on the top and on the spice one you can put pudding on top, the spice one is new to us this year.
Then I like to make two different snack cake mixes, one is from a Woman's Day magazine from the seventies.
The other is from the Make-A-Mix cookbook. Another I mentioned before is the scone mix from Little House Living.
I still want to mix up Make-A-Mix quick mix and waffle mix.
That will fill my jars that are empty and will make meal planning easier.

Missy says keep your spending down this year, you will thank her later.
They both say keep on wearing a mask and washing your paws, we are not out of the woods yet.
