A journal about my preparedness journey. Trying to learn new skills along the way. It may not be perfect, but the point is that we tried.

Beef Stew and bisquik

All in all not a bad day. I am not used to canning, this is only my second attempt at using a pressure canner but practice makes perfect.

I have thought about buying a dishwasher, but they are expensive and I can wash dishes by hand and save a bit of money.
