Cracked Wheat

Cracked Wheat Hot Cereal

2 C. Hard Red Wheat
3 C. Water
1t. Salt
2T. Butter
1/4 C. Honey or Brn. Sugar

Put this in the crock pot and set it on low for 6 hours. Depending on how you like your hot cereal adding water might be needed. 

I serve it just like this with juice and the kids love it. They like "popping" the wheat in their mouth. yeah, I don't know.

Chicken Salad Sandwiches

This is the Solid Food Storage Recipe. You can substitute fresh chicken and use grapes for the craisinsetc. But remember for your three month still buy the Food Storage ingredients too!

1-13 oz Can Chicken, shredded
2 -3 T mayo
1/2 C Craisins
1/4 C Walnuts, chopped (optional if you are using the wheat berries)
1/4 C. Wheat Berries, drained from any liquid
1 t. Lemon Juice
2 t. Tarragon
Pineapple tidbits and a Little of the juice if you want is good too

Mix it all up and use liquid from pineapple to get the consistency you want. Serve Cold over a croissant or homemade roll!

Minestrone Soup

Again, this is all Food Storage but sub. fresh and still buy F.S. ingredients too for your three month supply

1 Can Roast Beef, drained, shredded
1 Can Kidney Beans
2 Stalks of Celery (dehydrated celery)
2 Carrots, sliced (can Carrots, drained)
1/2 Onion, diced (3T.dehydrated onion)
1 can Diced Tomatoes (I use 28oz)
4 -6 Cups Beef stock (can use broth and bullion cubes)
Additional water until desired serving amount
1 Cup Elbow macaroni
1/2-1 C Wheat berries
1 tsp. Oregano
1tsp. Parsley
1tsp. Basil
1tsp. Salt/Pepper

You can add some Italian sausage if you want instead of roast beef for your fresh meat

Prepare your vegetables and add to Stock Pot or Crock Pot with everything but your macaroni. Let stew for 4-6 hours. Put macaroni in about 30 min before serving.
Serve with some Parmesan cheese if you want too!
