Mealstarters, Oh Where to Make Thee

So, I have been thinking about making another batch of my Mealstarter. It’s been a few months since I’ve run out of it, and I’ve been making do without it.

I’ve been wondering if I should do the traditional thing of going to a campground to do it, or just stay here in town.

If I go to a campground, I can use the electricity there to run the fridge day and night while I’m there. (Helpful in the freezing of the Mealstarter once It’s done.)

I can also use the electricity there to run the hotplate that I use to simmer the mixture for 4 hours.

Yet, if I stay in town, it will not cost as much as a weekend at the campground. 

Even if I blow through a full 30 pound tank of propane, that will be at best a bit more than one night at the campground.

Yet, I haven’t been to a campground since I de-winterized and while I don’t need to go, due to my solar charging system, it is still nice.

There is the serenity and the lack of traffic and people walking and driving right by my trailer. (That’s nice).

Yet, I am in (when am I not) a savings drive to build my savings accounts back to their minimum acceptable levels. 

We shall see what actually happens, but I am thinking about going to a campground for the Labour Day Long Weekend. 

One way or another, I will likely make another batch of Mealstarter that weekend.

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
