Max (age 18) has been receiving endless accolades over his baking skills for the past two weeks. Yesterday, Mason (age 13) decided to challenge Max in the homemade bread department.

He put melted butter (made from powdered butter and a few drops of water) on top, and then sprinkled them with garlic powder. There were DIVINE!! He made two pans so I put half of them in the freezer last night. They’re going to be delicious with sandwiches!!

That means the rations will taste better, and the fresh food will last longer since we’re not doing any grocery store trips for the foreseeable future.

He will be adding canned ground beef and diced tomatoes to the Chili Mac, and some canned veggies to the Chicken a la King. Yummy!!

The Art and Craft of Writing and Editing
Writing is a constant dialogue between author and reader.
The craft of writing involves an interchange of emotions between an author and a reader.
