To Be More Self-Sufficient and Frugal Learn To Cook Like They Did In the Great Depression

Original Article

Recently I was poking around the internet for some good recipes that would be good in a survival situation or any situation in which you have to make due with a limited amount of food.
This search lead me to a youtube channel called Depression Cooking in which Clara, a 94 year old woman from Chicago prepares recipes from the great depression that her mother made.
The video that I happened to come across first was for Depression Breakfast which I have included below.
Clara, also has her own website called Great Depression Cooking with Clara where you can find out more about her and even purchase her DVD.

My grandparents lived through the great depression and I learned quite a lot from them, but they are no longer around.  I think that what Clara is doing is great, and we can learn a lot from people like her.
I plan on trying some of her recipes, I hope you will too.

Audio Podcast: Episode 97 - Thoughts on the nuclear crisis happening in Japan.

Original Article

Every day the crisis of Japan’s nuclear reactors that were damaged in the earthquake and tsunami gets worse. Currently, one of the reactors is on fire and there’s no way to know how much radiation the reactor is leaking and whether it will stay localized or of it poses a threat to other countries.

If you don’t have potassium iodide or iodate now, good luck finding any. Probably the only sources available are from the “greedsters” on eBay. This is why we prepare, so we have the resources available when a disaster or crisis event occurs. Once the event happens, the odds that you’ll be able to get what you need drop to nil.

There is one resource that you can still get, but only because it hasn’t become an issue yet, and that’s powdered milk. If iodine-131 makes its way over here to the USA and word leaks out about radiation getting into the milk, you’re going to see all of the powdered milk supplies dry up fast. If you have children and you don’t have a good supply of powdered milk, now is the time to get it.
