Another feature of theirs is the Food Storage Analyzer .  You just plug in what you have and it tells you what you need!  It also has TONS of recipes so you know what to do with it all.  At first you enter how many are in your family and their ages so it's totally personal to your needs.  If your serious about building a food storage, this is a great asset!  One thing to note- if your buying items from them then it's easy to add to the analyzer.  If your entering your own items it will be quite a project since it asks for nutritional information.  Good info to have

Fruit Salad (Yummy, yummy :) )

I'm back!! What a crazy few weeks! We finished school, got summer started (which has been just as busy), and then my computer crashed (and continues to have occasional hiccups, I might add), so I have been unable to post for a few weeks! Kudos to Audrey for all her hard work on here alone! Here is a recipe I did last week and have been anxious to post - enjoy!! 3 bananas 2 small cans mandarin oranges green grapes (some - use your own judgment on how many) 1 pkg strawberries 2 small pkg vanilla pudding 1 pint buttermilk 8 oz cool whip In a 9 X 13 pan, mix all the fruit together. Add as many grapes and strawberries as you want, till it looks good to you. In a medium bowl, mix together the pudding, buttermilk and cool whip. Mix in pan with the fruit, and serve. Yummy!!
