This is "Dinner Is In The Jar"! I am posting 2 recipes to give you an idea how you can make these dinners up to help you in an emergency ie: snowstorm, hurricane, natural disaster, power outage and also for convenience when you don't have time to cook etc.

I am taking these recipes from the book "Dinner Is In The Jar" by Kathy Clark

I am working on my own recipes, however, you can purchase her book by going to dinnerisinthejar.com

I will post my creations when I complete them. If anyone else is into this, please let me know! Thanks!

You can use either canning jars or mylar bags

Lots of information on Mylar Bags on Internet. UTube has lots of great video.

**You do not have to process quart jars just seal tightly so air doesn't get in. Make sure they are very clean however.
