A meat sauce on spaghetti. The sauce contains tomato puree, diced tomatoes, diced beef, and bell peppers (red, yellow, and green) with the seeds included. A portion of the beef is intentionally over-cooked. The sauce is seasoned with fresh garlic, basil, oregano, paprika, onion powder, cajun seasoning, crushed red pepper, parsley, chili powder, olive oil, and possibly some additional seasonings.

Today I was thinking how thankful I am that we have consistently prepared because lately we ran into a financial situation. I am so glad we were partially prepared and although we will be ok, our finances took a bit of a hit, so it’s nice to have food security.

It’s nice knowing we have enough food stocked up so that we could eat to our hearts content in moments like these which is amazing.

So today we cooked and ate angel hair pasta, turkey meat balls with Ragu spaghetti sauce for lunch and corn, greens and sausage for dinner with lemon flavored seltzer water.

Then this week the water filter was not working properly and so I was so glad we didn’t have to rush out to buy a new one, although they are not that expensive. So we were able to take from our supplies of gallons of water. It’s nice to know we can hold off till the next time we shop to pick up another new filter.

And one crazy thing is that I am so used to always buying everything we need as soon as we run out, not realizing I could use our storage items till we could get to a store on a later date and time. That helps to keep life moving smoothly along. So with plenty of gallons of water to choose from I used my storage water to cook and drink from at moments like these.

I tell you prepping is the best hobby in the world! You never really know when your supplies will one day come in handy and for us this week they came in real handy, till things go back to normal.


I like to call my self a happy soul, a daydreamer and have a heart of a gypsy. Love to use my imagination. And trying out new things. Life can be so wonderful and enjoyable when I am being positive and releasing.
