Proof: Food Storage Tastes Good!

January 17, 2010

#2, #1, and Transformer Buddy are drinking powdered milk…and eating cookies made with powdered eggs and black beans!

How it all began: My sister gave me a food storage book for Christmas, and it’s inspired me! It’s a super easy plan with super simple instructions and great recipes. I Can’t Believe it’s Food Storage! Love it.
So, we ran out of milk the other day. After the kids were in bed I made some powdered milk. The next morning Hubby poured a bowl of cereal for #1. He took a bite and said, “Daddy, why does this taste…(are you ready for this?) YUMMIER?!” Hubby told him I made some special milk, and now he asks if he can always have it!
And then I decided to press my luck. I made a tried and true cookie recipe, but subbed black beans for the oil, and used powdered eggs. Transformer Buddy wasn’t super impressed, but #1 said, “I think they’re good!” and washed it down with two cups of “special” milk. I’m going to tweak the recipe and try it again before I post it. But it’s very promising. And for the first time in their lives, #1 and #2 willingly (albeit unknowingly) ate black beans!
