In today's show we start a new series on Modern Survivalism where you do everything you can to make your life better now by lessening dependency, trying to live debt free and learning basic skills.

Today's recipes are:

Simple whole wheat honey desserts

  • ¼ cup milled whole wheat per tortilla
  • pinch salt
  • pinch sugar
  • water very little
  • butter
  • honey

Mix flour, water, salt, sugar & let sit for 5-10 minutes, roll out with dowel or rolling pin & cook over stove - no butter or Pam in pan. Put a little butter on the tortilla right after it comes off the heat & put honey on it & cut with a pizza cutter & serve.

Quick beans - dried to eating in 65 minutes.

  • 7 Cups water
  • 5 beef bouillion cubes
  • 1 pound dried pinto beans
  • ¼ cup dried onions
  • thyme sprigs
  • 1-2 cups meat - use frozen ham.

Add everything to a pressure cooker & bring it to pressure (10-15 lbs) & keep it at pressure for 60 minutes - serve over rice or potatoes.

great information thanks

Great episode! Recipes sound delicious, although not having a kitchen I probably won't be trying them anytime soon.

But yeah budget living, or living minimally, is great. It's amazing how few bills you can have it you just simplify...and the fewer bills, the less work you have to do, which in the end leaves more time for haxooring.

Thanks Tracy for the useful information, I appreciated the re thinking of the survivalism term to include a whole lot more than stockpiling guns and ammo for the "coming armageddon"
