 WEEK 4  Grill peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on the Buddy Burner (or the usual skillet and kitchen range) for a fun family treat! Spread softened margarine on one side of a slice of bread and peanut butter on the other side. On the second slice put margarine on one side and jelly on the other. "Kiss" the peanut butter and jelly sides. Place margarine side down on lighted Buddy Burner. Cook until golden brown, then turn and cook other side. Cool slightly then serve as a breakfast or picnic treat! Foods such as grilled sandwiches, pancakes, hamburgers, bacon and eggs can be cooked directly on top of the #10 can Buddy Burner! Add small amount of oil or shortening to top of can/cooking surface to prevent sticking. (If planning to utilize hot water heater water or toilet tank water for emergency storage, carefully drain 2 gallons of water from hot water tank and clean toilet tank each month and put 1/2 cup bleach in cleaned tank.)
 WEEK 3  Ask a boy scout or young woman from the unit how to make a "Buddy Burner Stove" from an empty #10 dry pack can, an empty tuna can, corrugated cardboard, and candle wax or paraffin wax. (Or check out the YW Camp Manual for instructions.) The Buddy Burner Stove is for outdoor use or for use inside a fireplace with the damper open because it gives off black smoke!
 WEEK 2  Read Mark 8:1-9. Redeem coupons! If brand loyal to the more expensive brands of tuna, commit to purchasing enough house brand or store brand tuna to substitute in a favorite tuna recipe this week. Compare/evaluate the results then decide if the difference is great enough to continue being brand loyal! Label, date and record all tuna purchases. Clean out and save the empty tuna cans in a child-proof area for a great FHE activity next week.
 WEEK 1  Tuna and peanut butter have been added to the basic food storage list as supplemental protein sources. Store what you eat and eat what you store! There is no recommended amount for tuna as a basic food storage item. Consider how tuna is currently being utilized in meal planning and buy cans to reflect that usage. Total basic peanut butter storage recommended per year for males/females 18 years or older is 4 pounds. Purchase the entire amount of peanut butter recommended for each family member. As always, label, date, and rotate basic food storage. Peanut butter is recorded with the oils group in your Basic Food Storage inventory. Record all purchases in your Basic Food Storage Binder. If any family members have peanut allergies then store more tuna or additional powdered milk, grains or legumes!
