Today is "after action" cleanup, washing utensils, putting away the canning equipment, rearranging the storage (FIFO), inventory, planning for the circa-Holiday Proteinaceous sales, for yet another spate of Freeze-Drying.

Meatloaf(s), Ham Steaks, Seasoned Ground Meats of various Cultural palettes, maybe (if I'm lucky) some Game Meats - are next up in a Month or Two.

Juust about ready for Lights Out (This NO Drill

I've pretty well perfected canning ground meat, normally just a basic seasoning, but i've always wanted to know how the dryer deals with good greasy taco meat. It's probably a good two years out as a realistic investment, but they keep looking better.

Grease is difficult for Freeze-Drying. Much at all, and the storage longevity is lost. Drain/ eliminate grease as much as possible. Pick lean meats. Drain, absorb as much oils and fats as possible. Add the fats needed back in at serve, using whichever You have on hand.
Ended up being 43 Quarts of AppleSauce, and total output for Two Day's Canning, plus Six Days' Freeze-Drying (running Concurrently/overlapping), over 80 Quarts of Fruit: Bananas, Peaches, Pears, and those durn Apples...We're all Three taking it easy today!
When you're unmotivated by money, power, or fame, it's very hard to have a conversation about work product and effort with a person that only knows those three things as a currency. Something tells me these people inherited their money. Might be their sloppy ways and sloppier waistlines.
I absolutely loathe having to come into the city to work. It is almost not worth it anymore. Everybody has lost their damn manners and nobody seems to know what a turn stick on that wheel those anymore. Going Galt looks better and better everyday. Truly wish I could make a living in my little zone of semi still kind of Mayberry.
Getting my pre hurricane on. Been running on genset since 0520 when a drunk illegal took out a pole. Who do I bill for the propane since they let the offender walk away? A citizen gets caught driving without a license, you're going to jail. Two wrecks on this road this year, both by illegals. No restitution is ever made. State patrol in both cases let the illegals walk. I have pics.
Making Nanaimo Bars - too good for ANY of You! (Possible exception Sentinel 1)

Send them to Sentinal 1.
Our waistline doesn’t need those HL.
Did the world go totally to hell while I was sick? Seems like the tempo of hate and disgust has ramped up several magnitudes.
I'm out walking amongst them today.
This is definitely the sickest I've ever been in my life. Might go back to urgent care. Wow. One can only watch so much TV. I am at a loss for folks whom can allow this box to control their lives. Now I see why less gets done.

How're you doing today? If you got the pneumonia (or even just the creeping lung crud) you're going to have a mess of a recovery. Seems harder to get over in hot weather. If you got the HIV too, you're in for a time of it. You know you're supposed to wrap those airport toilet seats in about 2 inches of paper if you're going to use them...
