Reminder: Today is your second chance to start the challenge
2012: A Year of Preparedness
Our August Challenge is: Eat no food from the fridge or freezer for 3 days , while imagining it is a widespread power outage. Did you do the challenge yet?
Choose 3 consecutive days, and during that time, make all your meals out of shelf stable ingredients.
Tape your fridge and freezer shut from Sunday after church until Wednesday breakfast. (Start today!)
Using all other electricity is OKAY during this challenge. Using city water is also okay.
No using ice or ice chests. We are practicing how it will be after power is out for several days, with no ice available.
If you have leftovers, you can store them in the fridge, but you can’t get them back out until Wednesday.
You are not restricted from shopping, but you can’t use anything refrigerated or frozen.
Learn to cook with some substitutions. Do you own powdered milk, powdered eggs, powdered butter, powdered sour cream, etc.? If you haven’t used them before, buy one can of powdered milk and one can of powdered eggs, and begin using them in baking to rotate them.
Email Amy to tell her what you learned!
