Frozen Berry Sauce

Last Saturday morning we decided to have breakfast for lunch. The kids wanted pancakes and Rob wanted French toast. Everyone wanted bacon. I had made a loaf of Golden Egg Bread in the bread maker which is absolutely delightful as French toast. I had some frozen bananas which I turned into Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes. I had some homemade Pancake Syrup already made up.

Rob really wanted some kind of berry syrup/sauce for the French toast. I couldn't find any at our local convenience store (I didn't expect they would have it). So I was determined to make something for him. I had some frozen strawberries, but no blueberries. However, I got started.

I started with a bag of  frozen whole unsweetened strawberries in a saucepan with two tablespoons of sugar. I let them thaw and soften over medium heat. In the meantime, I was still looking for frozen blueberries because I could have swore I had some! I didn't find any, but I found some blueberry freezer jam that I had not liked by itself and I couldn't just throw it out either.

In the saucepan, I was stirring the strawberries and they were starting to soften so I smashed them down some more. They were starting to form a sauce. I decided to add some honey because I like honey. I let it cook some more and then added a few good-sized spoonfuls of blueberry jam. The blueberry jam thickened up the strawberries quite a bit. I used a blueberry jam that was made of natural sugars and honey. I let the mixture cook on medium until it started boiling. Then I turned it down on low because I had to get the pancakes done and the French toast done. The sauce cooked on low for about 15 minutes until I was ready for it.

My sauce was still a bit chunky and I like it like that. I want to know that it still contains fruit.

I poured it into my gravy boat so it could be poured out onto the pancakes and French toast. Honestly, I thought the kids would not like it. They loved it!!! Rob loved it! Dane thought it tasted like something from Denny's which he is currently obsessed with eating at. I think he meant that as a compliment.

10 Preparedness Items You Should Be Buying Every Month

As crazy as it seems, some people make prepping harder than it has to be. Learning skills can be hard, but the end rewards are so worth it. The work can be hard, but the pay off is that jobs get done and you have accomplished something for the future. However...preppers still need stuff. We can produce a lot of our own things and survive just fine. We still need the items that will make survival easier now and, heaven forbid, if anything bad happens. We need things to keep our lifestyle simpler and easier if something happens. Over the eight years or so that I have been prepping, I have some things that I buy almost every month. Some months when the budget is tight, I might not purchase any of these. Then I appreciate having these things on hand! Below is my list of things I buy every month.
