Buying ahead, blogging ahead: BY #15 for November 22

My BY for the day: Can of chunk pineapple

I were adding anything to go along with this, it would be: Well, I already posted my ambrosia recipe, so I will now share with you a comment that the TM Frugal Gourmet left under that post: (BY #11)

"Have you used your canned fruit with cottage cheese?? OH WOW, my kids love it! But they love it even more when I make cottage cream and then make a frozen fruit "sorbet" to put on top.

I do use a VITAMIX to make these...

Cottage Cream

2 cups cottage cheese

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp. real vanilla extract

Mix all in blender until smooth. Pour back into the cottage cheese container or individual custard cups. Let set up in fridge

Frozen Sorbet

Frozen fruit


ONLY enough water so it isn't stuck when blending. Blend this until all fruit is smooth and it mounds in the corners. Use a cookie scoop to dish up on top of cottage cream.

OR use frozen, fresh or canned fruit arranged on top of the cottage cream.

Cottage cream tastes like cheesecake according to my kids, without the heavyness. "

This sounds delicious to me--granted, I like both cottage cheese and cheesecake, so it's not a stretch to think that this would be a treat. Of course, you would need both refrigeration and electricity for this to work out, but not all emergencies result in loss of power, so it would be good to have a stocked fridge and freezer in case of a different kind of emergency--higher prices, food transportation disruption, or the like.

Thanks again to TM Frugal Gourmet, over at TM Preparedness! She has left a lot of other great comments as well, so it is worth going to past posts and checking them out. Having blogged ahead, I didn't get to posting comments until today, so they are new, and informative. Also, didn't see until I went to link to TM Preparedness that the BY challenge is mentioned there--thanks, and there is still time to get in a lot of cans before New Year's--hope everyone will share ideas I haven't thought of...

Since this is the blog post that is for Thanksgiving Day, Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Hope yours is wonderful!
