51 week list and recipes

New 51 Week Storage Ideas Week Three

This is for two (2) people so buy according to your family’s size.

Read any good books lately?

 Week three food list
1. 30 - 50 pounds of flour, whole wheat or white your choice (50 pound bag for larger families wanting to get ahead with a bit more.)
2. 25-pound bag of sugar (cost is still under $12.00 these days depending on where you go) this is supposed to go up in price this year again, stores about forever.
3. 2 to 3 pound sealed bag of instant yeast. (After this is opened it can be kept in a refrigerator or cool place.)
4. Large box baking soda. (I open ours and store in glass or plastic jars to keep moisture out with date.)

5. Large container baking powder.

 Fried Squaw Bread
3 cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 and ½ tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon oil
1 and ½ cup water

Use a skillet or deep fryer. Mix these ingredients and stir well. Then drop by large tablespoons full into hot oil or shortening, cook them for 3 or 4 minutes or until golden brown turning as necessary. Drain on paper towel or old cloth you normally wash and use for this sort of thing. Then roll in sugar or eat with honey.

Diet Or Water Bread

1 tablespoon yeast
¼ cup warm water
Mix these 2 ingredients let rest a couple of minutes, and then add
½ teaspoon salt
2 cups warm water
6 to 6 and ½ cups flour

Mix and then knead, let rise. Punch down, put in a greased pan, let rise. Bake 30 minutes at 375 degrees.

 Irish Brown Bread
Makes 2 loaves
7 –8 cups whole-wheat flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoons baking powder
1 tablespoon honey

4 cups scalded milk (cooled to lukewarm)
Dough will be sticky, but if way to sticky add more flour. Using floured hands mix dough. When smooth but still damp it is ready for shaping. Divide dough into two loaves, rounded. Place on a greased and floured baking sheet. With a sharp knife dipped in flour cut a deep cross in the top of each loaf. Dust each loaf with flour and blow off excess. Bake 40 to 45 minutes at 425 degrees.

Many other breads, rolls, muffins, biscuits and things like pancakes and etc. can now be made.

Woke up to snow again, it wasn't at midnight yet. I know I got up to travel to the bathroom and looked out the window to see the chicken coop wide open with the light on, gadsssssssssss.
To top it off the gate to the chicken yard was hooked open. 
Dh had let the chickens run around in the yard and filled their waterers and we got so busy with grand daughter and sending things to daughter in AZ for a college class, (she needed all kinds of family info for psychology class). Family traits, blood types, health problems pictures I felt like I had homework lol. So we forgot to close them up.
I get dressed and am about to go out the bedroom door and dh wakes up to ask what I am doing lol.
We left the coop open dear and we don't need a chicken massacre.
I was surprised an unenterprising owl hadn't already flown in there.


  1. I love that you have a weekly grocery list to give folks a kickoff point to use. I look forward to trying that Dark Bread and making that "Diet Bread" for my unabiding 2 moms. lol.

    Great job Lady!

  2. Did I ever tell you I LOVE your blog :) ~ I think if a person isn't frugal this day and age they need to have their heads examined. Grocery prices are getting outrageous and we NEED to stock up whether we have a big family or not just to stay ahead of the game. Also ... loving the recipes ~ keep 'em coming. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Loving the shopping lists. I am the food storage go to person at our ward and will share these with some of the ladies if you don't mind.
