3 lb's of beef or vinisin
1 large egg
3/4 cup of milk
3 tablespoons of catsup
3 table spoons of brown sugar
1 tablespoons of yellow musturd

2.mix the ingredients.then mix into the beef..
3..mix bread/cracker crumbs to disired thickness

ive heard for years that pickle juice. works with foot and calf/leg cramps.I'm not sure if it's low Electrolytes. or cacium or what ever.but what's worked for me over the years.is rasins.i normally get them not coated with sugar. but i wonder if sugar coated rasins would work better.

what I've done in the rent home i moved from.i'd keep a small electric space heater in there during the winter only..seeing how it can be cold in there during the winter.i'd turn it on and close the door.come back 5 to 10 minutes later.and it'll be plenty warm in there.then id turn the hot water on..that not only adds moisture to the air.but warms things up in there a lil more. as well.

I've often thought about life without electricity. the longest ive gone without it is 3 days on 2 occasions. Tornadoes is the cause of it each time.i was able to borrow a gas generator the 1st time.i borrowed a ice chest the 2nd time.between it and the one i already have.allowed me to save my refrigerator foods.freezer foods remaind frozen.both situations allows me to at lest have a good idea to what life would be like with no electric. on a permanent basis..that's one reason i got into home canning.seeing how meats as well as other foods can be canned.i deffently need to learn ways of cooking and canning without electric and gas.

Might look into solar powered waterfalls to circulate the water.might go with them and gypsum if that proves worth while.but yet.thats a big maybe.

Wind chimes is a good idea.

How about making candle's. Keep what you want.either give away and/or sell the others.and the outside of the cans can be decorated in some way ..

Thats why i prefer doing most of my canning duting the winter.but as for as sumner time canning goes.i'll either get a esrly start.in which i can 1 batch only.before the heat of the day starts setting in.then start up again after 6pm.

As for as a 8 inch electric burner goes..chances are.it'll work just fine.
