I am so excited about a brand new blog called The Provision Room, named in honor of Five Little Peppers and How They Grew. (You can get a free Kindle copy of the book here.) My daughter and her friend have a vision for their homes and lives that can help all of us out, too!
The mission for their blog in their words:
To prepare our homes—kitchens, pantries, and gardens—to be ready in case of emergencies or unexpected life changes. To do so we will not increase our food budgets nor cause our family to subsist on bread and water. We will strive for the following ideals:
We will not recommend you go out and buy food-like substances, just because they have a shelf life. We will learn to make Real Food last.
~Organic, local and sustainable whenever possible
This is not always possible, but is a lot more possible than people think. We’ll try to show you how we feed our families while being true to our values.
We will search out things that are genuinely good deals and not just short term solutions. We will strive to be good stewards of the family finances.
We will try to find ways to store our food and stock our pantries without resorting to a bunch of disposables that overfill already overfull landfills.
We will not act like we have all the answers and will show you our mistakes and learn to laugh at them!
They are also on Facebook charming us all! You can also read more about them on the Prosperous and Successful blog were they are being featured this week.
This week they are having an pretty fantastic giveaway to celebrate their grand opening with all kinds of chances to win. They are giving away a $50 gift card to Azure Standard, an autographed book entitled Year of Plenty that I can't wait to read, and a case of Venice Premium Biscotti. How fun is that?! The giveaway ends tomorrow (Wednesday) night, so hurry on over the party!
