This weekend is the big game. You know… the Super Bowl! It ranks right up there with Thanksgiving and the Fourth of July for food sales, but if you are like me, there won’t be a lot of extra shopping. Instead, I will be diving into my freeze-dried stash of freeze-dried food, and grabbing some game-worthy snacks.
Swedish meatballs? Absolutely! I freeze dried a couple trays of them a while back, and I quartered the meatballs for easy rehydration. Start them a little early in the crock pot, and they will be ready on time.
Did someone say salsa and guacamole? Yes, I have those!! Ok, so I probably need some chips. That goes on the grocery list. I have freeze-dried taco meat made with my special homemade taco seasoning. I have freeze-dried sour cream. I have freeze-dried shredded cheese. Once rehydrated, those will be some awesome nachos!
I could add some chili-dog casserole. My family loves it, and it never lasts very long. I even have the aforementioned cheese that I can top it with.
Reuben sliders might be an option. I have freeze-dried corned beef and kraut in the stash. I could add those little Hawaiian Rolls, swiss cheese, and Thousand Island to the list. I love brining my own corned beef, and fermenting kraut, but you don’t have to. Just freeze dry what you use.
One always needs some sweets, too. I currently have apple straws, peaches, strawberries, cheesecake bites, ice cream sandwiches, and some candy. I think that is covered.
Not only will we have a lovely spread, but those who aren’t in the know will have a hard time deciding what has been freeze dried and what hasn’t.
My grocery list is no bigger this week than last week or the week before. My Harvest Right smooths out the bumps and keeps me on budget while building a food storage that works for the everyday situations (like ball games and crowds) just as well as the abnormal times (like layoffs or short paychecks).
If you don’t have a Harvest Right, what better reason do you need than a Super Bowl crowd? Now is the time to check out these amazing machines, and the awesome plans they have to help you get one. You will be joining an elite group of people who really love food and food preservation. Next year, you can pick your menu from your stash, too.
