For those of you who have food storage, but don't know what to do with it, did you know that Shelf Reliance has a YouTube channel with monthly cooking demos? Their resident professional chef, Todd Leonard, hosts a monthly cooking demo, using the THRIVE ingredients on sale that month. If you live in the vicinity of American Fork, UT, and you want to be part of the live audience, just let me know. I'll get you all the details. Otherwise, you can watch it on-line like me. These shows are called "THRIVE LIVE" and they're pretty fun. And you can see all the recipes for what Chef Todd makes by clicking on the link at the bottom of the video.
In July, the monthly theme was breakfast foods, and Chef Todd made egg white scrambles, smoothies, german pancakes, and spiced apple oatmeal. To see the video of July's THRIVE LIVE, click here.
This month, all the monthly specials are part of Chef Todd's "Dutch Oven" theme, though you can make them in a large sauce pan or skillet as well. The August THRIVE LIVE is happening on August 22nd and will be posted on YouTube shortly thereafter. The recipes he will be showing are:
As always, if you want to order any of the THRIVE foods or other emergency preparedness items, just contact me. I can get you a better price than Costco, or even than the Shelf Reliance Website. And just this week I made homemade sun-dried tomato alfredo sauce using tomatoes I dehydrated myself in the sun oven, so I promise to get a post up about sun oven dehydration for those interested. Until then, keep thriving!
