I was so good I didn't even turn on my computer or Blackberry until 7:00 PM. I learned that it is possible and necessary to let it all go. The world isn't going to end. ...

We have been relying on our nice freezer stockpile. Since I do not have a Vacuum Sealer (the FoodSaver is on my want list!), I use Glad Press ...
