Day 5.  Short post today because of low battery banks.  We have plenty of electricity for lights and essentials but with a 2 or 3 day storm coming in tomorrow and mostly cloudy skies today, I’d like to preserve as much power as I can.

We ran the furnace again this morning to take the morning chill off the house.

Had trouble running a new propane stove this morning so had to swap out to a backup.  Can’t say enough about testing your equipment at least yearly and having backups in case equipment goes down. We are almost done with testing the propane stoves and will probably start on the wood burning Rocket Stoves tomorrow.

Thought I’d give you our menu for today.  Everything is made from scratch ingredients.

Breakfast – Coffee.  Steel Cut Oats.

Lunch – Bean Burritos with fresh made tortillas and Spanish Rice.  Finished with a warm tortilla sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon for dessert.

Dinner – Homemade Rice-a-Roni with a Beef Patty (made from TVP, it is actually really good) and griddle bread.

I think that’s it for today.  Still doing well.
