Christmas is the season for cookies. Right? And just because Christmas is over, that doesn’t mean we have to stop making cookies. Right? I thought so.

At Christmas time, do you struggle to find boxes to wrap Christmas presents in? If so, have I got a good suggestion for you.

One of my first memories of Christmas is making Christmas tree ornaments. Not your mother’s “I’ll treasure this little aluminum foil star/toilet paper roll tube forever” kind of ornament, but the “This is not going to last until Christmas” kind of ornament.
Read how you can make these ornaments and enjoy a great recipe at the same time with Ready or Not #194: Sugar Cookies Christmas Edition.
Do you fix something special for breakfast on Christmas morning? Something that is healthier than candy? You might want to try waffles, eggs, and sausage. Many of the ingredients are in your food storage. (Aren’t they?)
Find the recipes for these yummy foods in our Ready or Not #193: Waffles, Eggs, and Sausage Christmas Edition.
And have a healthy (and prepared) breakfast on Christmas Day!
Christmas is a season that is filled with traditions. These traditions bond family members together and leave warm, lasting memories.
Read about one of my family’s traditions in Ready or Not #105: Oyster Stew. This could become one of YOUR traditions, too!
I have previously written about storing your vegetables and having them available in your food storage. To round out your well-balanced nutrition intake, this week I will discuss how to store your fruits.
Ready or Not #94: Storing Fruit gives you different ways to store (and use) fruit so that you will have it in your food storage to use throughout the year.
Christmas isn’t about buying toys that blink, whir, use a bazillion batteries, and cost a lot of money. It isn’t about buying gifts just to fill a void.
I encourage you to develop an attitude of gratitude and help someone get prepared in the process. Read Ready or Not #192: Getting an Attitude About Preparedness.
