Food Storage Web Site

For those of you who are interested in actually using your food storage, I have a great website for you. www.safelygatheredin.blogspot.com It's a blog by a lady who posts about food storage. Every Friday she posts a new recipe using EXCLUSIVELY food storage items. There's also a list of past recipes so you can go back and browse. I've made a couple of the recipes and they taste really good! The curried lentils over rice was yummy. Most of these recipes are pretty healthy too. Take a look!

Thanks to Uncle Scott's running program I am now able to run a half hour without stopping! I know that doesn't sound significant, but to me it IS! I have also started a biggest loser competition in my ward! We started on Saturday with our initial weigh in, and I've lost a whopping 0.5 lbs. I'm excited about it though!
I also went jet skiing for the first time on Tuesday. It was a BLAST! It's pretty cheap too. I guess it only cost about $100 to rent the jetskis for the entire day, and the company brings them to the lake to you, and then comes and picks them up when you're done. Sweet Deal! We took the kids out on them too. Ashley didn't like it because she said she got too cold (it was about 95 degrees out, so I didn't quite understand that), but Erik LOVED it. Tim said he kept asking him to go Faster, Faster!!! Unfortunately we didn't get any pictures. :( We had a great time, and the Lake was only about 5 minutes from our house. It was actually a little cove off the snake river, but I still had NO idea it was there. There's a swimming area roped off and a boat launch and a dock and everything....now that I know about it, we'll be spending a lot more time there!
