Accentuate the Positive.

Tomorrow. May 1st. Our family will be heading down into the "bunker". One month of no grocery shopping. None.

Out of milk? Tough. Make some.
Out of eggs? Tough. Make some.
Out of bread....you get the picture.

I made 4 loaves of bread today to start us out. I'll make up some powdered milk tonight. We'll see how the milk thing goes. I predict milk consumption will go down by approximately 75% this coming month. Or more.

So what's for dinner tonight? I don't know...we're going out for one last hurrah.

And now we dance.

If all else fails there's pizza at Costco. That doesn't count does it?

Costco is not "grocery" shopping.

Do you have a "slush" fund for personal emergencies like chocolate to restore your endorphin levels to a semi normal state?! Does chocolate that comes to you personally in the mail count? I would send you some Florence's chocolates (exquisite*) but you might share them with the boys and they would be wasted.

How did Dad ever plan to keep you safe in a trailer parked on an Indian Reservation? You woulda been toast without a bunker for sure.

Love the picture.

Here's a toast to your enthusiasm and guts! I would do maybe...a week? You've got moxie!

My security word is: fooduck! Go figure...how did they know?

Let us know if we can ship in some important side dishes, such as strawberry cheesecake or Tony Roma's bbq ribs!
