 Here is your weekly preparedness steps.  For those of you who are keeping the paper copies, sorry I wasn’t at church on Sunday, I took a much needed vacation without access to the internet!  It was great!  But I do have the copies printed out so will bring them the week after Stake Conference so you can have a copy!

    Do you have to add water or anything to the tvp? Would chicken flavor tvp work as a substitution? Thanks in advance for any additional info, and for posting the recipe!
