Food Prep Work in High Gear
Well, prep work is in high gear here. Skipper, my hubby, gave me a great cookbook to begin food prep - it's called The Appalachian Trail Food Planner which he bought from the ATC ( Appalachian Trail Conservancy). In there are great ideas for drying and preparing foods so one doesn't live on mashed potatoes and Stove Top Stuffing. The recipes are nutritious and easy. Our countertop is filled with all kinds of nuts, whole grains, fruits etc to make the energy bars, granola, GORP varieties, and other recipes. We've been drying beans, peas, carrots, carrot shavings, dried beef, beef paste, chicken. And the freezer is getting full with everything I've baked. And hubby will take up the reins and continue making goodies and mailing them to our drops. I know with healthy food out there we will have better energy reserves and a better chance to succeed, which is the ultimate goal.
