Headed to the property to make our first true “Storage Run”.
Since we started prepping, even before we thought seriously about purchasing property, we have been putting things aside in case of a “rainy day”.

My stir fry actual tasted like real Chinese stir fry, not just veggies doused in soy sauce. Continue reading “5 Spice Powder”
