LDS Church News - Church opens cannery doors to help ease pangs of hunger

Just thought i'd share. Are you prepared to take care of yourself or your loved ones for 3 month, a month, a week, a day??Are you a prepper? All it takes is one can at a time, don't rush, but don't wait to be despaired either. Do it for yourself and your loved ones please!!! Just do it! Take 5 minutes make a supply list, like water, batteries, canned/dry food, first aid, and such. Just do. Tis better to be safe than sorry.

Quick Sweet Potato Pie

preheat oven to 350

1 sweet potato large or 1 small can
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 dash salt
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup sugar or sweeten to taste with your favorite sweetener.

Spices like cinnamon, cloves, ginger,or nutmeg. You can add one or all. It's all to your liking. note: pumpkin pie spice has all the above.

Well I had this one large sweet potato in the fridge for a while so I microwaved it and let it cool. Add the egg, milk, butter, sugar and spices. I used cloves, and pumpkin pie spice. Cinnamon is also very good. Blend all ingredients and put in pie crust. Personally I use my never fail pie crust. I love it because its a never fail pie crust, (lol) and whenever I need to make a pie of some sort voila! ;there it is. Bake till crust is browned.

Hmmm. my guestimate is about $2.00 for the whole lot of this. Serves about 8-10 nice slices.
btw the taste is as good as it smells.

I'm back with many blessings:))

Hi everyone I'm back. I've been so very busy trying not to spread myself so thin. Lol. I hope you had a wonderfully Blessed Holiday. Looks like everything is back to normal. My home is thank the Lord. Only thing is my clothes are fitting a little tighter this week than last month. Oh oh. If I don't get a grip on it now, my clothes won't fit at all.
Ok. Check. However I know I'm not alone here right? Especially after the holidays.

I also want to share some of my New Years Resolutions with you. Funny cause I never make one, and now I have a few. Probably because I end up never keeping them. However I feel so strong about these. They are...

1. Get healthier physically, mentally, and spiritually.
2. Be more of service
3. Go to Hawaii/business/temple. Lol So anyway, dear friends, let's get
Mary Helens Test Kitchen going.

Psst. Thanks for coming back:)))
