This isn't everything, but close enough on amounts.

There are miscellaneous store-bought things here, marked with * but everything else is home-grown here, the Amish community, bulk shop or farm market.

I can see alot of things we need -- I haven't made noodles since last year :o( and we are out of olive oil, which is what we tend to use for all baking and such. I didn't list wheat, gluten or gluten flour, oats, sugars, popcorn for grinding as we have a lot of those in stock right now. I also didn't list the common stuff -- toilet paper, shampoos and soaps, first aid supplies, cases of lamp oil, wicks, matches, etc. because we don't generally run out of that kind of thing around here.

I suppose I should actually write out a real, all-inclusive inventory here, heh? I know what I have aside from the non-everyday essentials, it's just the everyday consumable stuff I have to track. Obviously, looking at the list, I need to keep better track of it.

Time to make a list....and get out to the building to start tackling the freezer chain!

Hi Deanna,
I don't know if you get a chance to read these comments. I am really praying you do. I had asked you a long time ago for a recipe that you had made and it was really good. It was Black Bean Soup. I have since missplaced it and am in a bit of a pickle. My SIL works at the local Kroger and when they are going to throw any thing out of value he sends a little bird my way. Well the bird came and told me that they were throwing about 150 lbs of dry beans out and they were in a shopping cart beside the dumpster. (THey did this last year too) Anyway I have about 50 lbs of black beans. I really liked that soup and thought that it might can nice. If you can post it again I would appreciate it. All of the beans were out of date but appeared to be fine. And free is free! I checked them all for bugs. I even put them in the freezer as a preventative. So now I am going to can most of this blessing for ready made meals. By the way I wish I could send you some of our Amish stores for your pantry needs down there. they are amazing. I drive sometimes 2 hours and still save tons of money.
Thanks Again
In Christ
