Food Baskets



My lovely wife's church has a food drive for the Thanksgiving holiday. Most people go through their pantry and put together non-perishable goods for the donation. We looked over our food stocks and really didn't have the proper food to donate.

Most of our non-perishable foods are bought in bulk and require preparation. Nobody want's a 50 pound bag of whole wheat berries, 20 pounds of pinto beans, or a 20 pound bag of rice. What are they going to do with a #10 can of dehydrated green peppers? We have only a couple cans of veggies. The bulk of our stored veggies are either frozen or dehydrated.

Instead of donating food this holiday we donated time and a little cash.

It's these little things bring home the fact that we don't quite shop or eat like “normal” people.

  1. That's only because the "norm" is so unprepared these days.

  2. "Normal" is a setting on the dryer.

  4. It is wise to be prepared for the worst, even if it doesn't happen. We only stock enough for a week or two, which I suppose in a pinch could be stretched a bit further.

    1. I better stocked for longer than that, but everyone had to figure out what works for them.
