There is one recipe that I rarely see utilized these days. It’s a classic French dish that was made popular by a cooking rat In the movie Ratatouille.

In the heat of mid summer, if your lucky, your tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant are growing like crazy. Most of us wind up handing off pounds of usable food to neighbors. Not that this is a bad thing but once you have made this recipe you will be using and storing more of the food you work so hard growing

I guess we could talk about cups and quantities. When you think a recipe those are what make you comfortable right. The problem I have with that is no one knows you or your tastes better than you. So make this dish with what you have in your garden.

Squash, eggplant, zuchini

Garlic, onions

Tomatoes, peppers

Corn

The squash, zucchini and eggplant are prolific so I use them as a heavy base.

Be sure to cut everything around the same size

Start your garlic and onions off in a pot big enough to hold all the diced up veg you plan on including in your batch. I like to use a good olive oil for this. Cook the onions and garlic on a low heat until they become limp and translucent. This is a te unique called sweating.

Ne,t add in the green pepper, if you choose to use it. Cook this down on low heat till its softened as well.

The squash, zucchini, eggplant go into the pot. Turn your heat up to medium high. These vegetables will take a while to cook down. They ate dense so stir them every few minutes until they become tender. At this point I add the diced tomatoes and corn cut off the cob.

To take it to the next level I will add some fresh flat leaf parsley, thyme and basil chopped.

The great thing about ratatouille is that it can be more than just a vegetable side. I eat it with pasta, over rice or other grains, its even great as a pizza topping.

If your looking for a high level use for those garden vegetables at the height of production. This dish cans up well and as I said before its very versatile.

Dont miss Fridays live show on http://www.prepperbroadcasting.com 9EST

We are looking down the barrel of another loaded gun. Unfortunately its one that will target the very people that hold this nation closest to its heart. If you have loved America and its founding principles to any degree you have been targeted for some time now. I talk about not labeling people on the show because so often in my life I have been labeled. The media loves words like survivalists, preppers, patriots, tea partiers, conservatives…whatever else. This is how they box people who believe certain things and once we are rallied like cattle they can determine how best to deal with us. Im sure you all recall the folks in tea party rallies being called Nazi’s. One example.

There is a new KEY TERM media mafia is shining up. I want you all to be aware of it because with the situation on the border you will be hearing it much more. Nationalism. You will be dubbed a Nationalist if you don’t kneel down to the leaders and their plans. If you dare question why we cannot expect the people who are hopping into the melting pot to do a little melting. Respect the language and the fact that the American culture has created the safe haven they are running to.

We are going to discuss Nationalism tonight. I think its very important to understand what good it can do as well as the evil it has brought upon the world. To be honest I think there has to be some level of Nationalism in every nation. You can see the rise of Nationalism in Europe as well. Their socialism and tolerance failed them so they are running back to what made their nations great.

This show will be about preparing for your next label and understanding how the world will look at you. We are really going to look at the world and America and see what Nationalism could be here. I guess I don’t understand how a Nation survives without certain key items in place. Will it all come down to those who want a nation without borders or culture versus those who still love America. Maybe? Till then theres I AM Liberty.

APE MAN and BEAST

Is ape man and beast

Like God to Man?

Is it loyalty

197645_1003670990316_5356836_n

We mistake for worship?

Is it gratitude

we mistake for idolatry

I have been blessed with great courage

Alongside my canine

Just the same

When my eyes fall their way

Those four legs are capable of miracles

When they are pups we feel like they couldn’t survive without us

But in actuality it’s us who needs them

baxmanlol

The ape man’s soul is lost without the ability to show affection

Forever at war with instinct and carnality

Inside this rigid and foreign world

The paradox is that we built this prison ourselves

But the beast, the canine can pull us out

baxcarter

I challenge you

Blur the lines between the ape man and the beast

Of course we all would like to think that the greatest threat in our porous borders is annoying some old white men who don’t want brown men in “their” country. Despite the incredible costs that come with an influx of uneducated, unskilled workers with families. The cultural imbalance and challenge of managing folks that simply don’t want to learn the language. Though I shouldn’t fane these issues as less than serious. When we talk about true current threats the border is an open wound for the current invasion.

I know. I know. There are so many paranoid androids out there just buying into one conspiracy after another. The fact is this is far from a conspiracy. One of our biggest issues in the near future will disseminating those issues that have long been part of the conspiracy wheel from those issues that are finally coming into full phase.

 

This from CBS NEWS:

The United States projects a record 4,000 immigrants from so-called “high risk” countries in the Middle East and Asia, will be arrested trying to enter the country illegally this year. Far more will get through. Add to that Mexico’s recent seizures of high powered weapons, including rocket launchers found in Tijuana, and U.S. officials fear a troubling new threat on our porous southern border, reports CBS News correspondent Bill Whitaker. “If it’s so simple for an uneducated, impoverished laborer to come across the border, think about how much easier it is for a highly trained, well financed terrorist,” warns T.J. Bonner, president of the Border Patrol union.

Use your imagination for a moment. It’s been a long holiday weekend. You traveled with your family to see relatives out of town. Perhaps your vehicle is filled with luggage and gifts from family. Speeding down the highway and headed back home you joke and laugh about the wonderful weekend. About your Aunts delicious baked apples and your cousin’s goofy laugh.

Suddenly traffic stacks up in front of you and you hear a loud concussive succession in the near distance, like gunfire. Traffic halts now and you even see a few cars in reverse along the shoulder.

Men with black masks follow the shoulder traffic. They walk meticulously along the edge of the road, on either side of traffic. They point their Kalishnikovs at each car and fire off rounds till nothing inside is alive.

 

Do you run? Can you run?

 

They are just a few cars away now. The guns pop and it makes you flinch as you see blood splatter across the glass in the car in front of you. One of the men turns his head to your car and begins walking your way.

 

The idea that there could be terror cells spread all across our nation already is an incredibly frightening thought but what’s stopping them? The protections put in place have had their teeth removed by lawyers and political correctness.

You say, “so what, so what James what am I gonna do? I don’t have the money to buy aTank.”

I get it this is why I talk about physical fitness. Taking a martial art. Preparing in uncommon yet commonsensical ways. You should be able to run for your life if need be. Since the dawn of man that was a great means of staying alive. Can you run? Can you fight? How about your will? Food, water, and shelter that’s all very important but do you know your next-door neighbors name? How about the one 4 doors down? I will always harp on the community. It is the ultimate preparation.

As far as Jihad is concerned it’s not going away. It’s a religious battle that means only to convert or kill. If you aren’t interested in being at the receiving end of either of those to than please plan accordingly

However you feel about Rick Perry he has been fighting this issue since 2012 and reported on the issue of the “humanitarian” crisis on Fox News Channel:

 

Perry gave an ominous warning: “We have record high numbers of other than Mexicans being apprehended at the border. These are people that are coming from states like Syria that have substantial connections back to terrorist regimes and terrorist operations. So we’re seeing record, historic high numbers of these individuals being apprehended.” Perry said he warned the Obama administration about the current border chaos in 2012. “We flagged this issue in 2012 and have yet to even have a response as far as I know, from not just, not from the president, but not even from his administration,” he said. Perry criticized the president by adding, “[Obama] is totally and absolutely either inept or making some decisions that are not in the best interest of American citizens, particularly from a public safety standpoint.”

 

Of course all Muslims aren’t evil. It’s a giant religion. Still, don’t be blind. For your country and your families sake you have to understand that there is a swelling population of radical Muslims all over this world that want nothing more that to cut your head off, kill your sons, rape your daughters and mutilate your wife before turning her into a slave.

Dont run from reality

 

When the world becomes edible

It will open your eyes

You will drive by thickets and smile

In the spring you will seek out young shoots and pods or

The beautiful morel mushroom

After those Spring rains other fungi will appear

The fire like chicken of the woods mushroom

As they burn bright on old oak trees

When the world becomes edible you will finally know variety

Not of the type that lines the market shelves

Common plantain, lady’s thumb, dandelion, wood sorrel

wild strawberry, blackberry, Mulberry,  elderberry

Natures seasonal inventory will keep you coming back

As the heat of late summer begins to wane

The paw paws are ripe and a treat all to themselves

The chantrelles and oyster mushrooms appear in the fall

Stinging nettle, Jerusalem artichoke, black walnut and wild grape

The truth is you’ll never look at the forest the same way

When the world becomes edible

 

Where do we go from here?

Posted: May 15, 2014 in Uncategorized

My mind is wrapped in the countries division. We live in one of the most interesting times and some of the most monotonic times.

As society spills out of its container and across the table of excess and immortality it feels as though we are stuck on a carnival ride. This repeating set of tracks studded by catastrophe, shock, hypocrisy and small victories keeps us all entertained, enough. Enough to agree to ride again and the beat goes on.

So what does a world so simple look like 10,20,50 years from now?

Though we think ourselves so complex it is only in the true expression of human will power that we become at all interesting. Otherwise we are no different thank our primitive ancestors still fighting over territory and mates. when we are given to these animal desires we limit our potential. Yet introduce a bit of will delay gratification and greatness will ensue.

What the hell am I saying? Stop being animals! There are huge events coming and in my view it will take everything in you not to eat your own neighbors!

The divide bleeding us dry

We are all monsters. Beasts of out own device. Some of us making efforts to be better and others to be worse. Who am I to judge another man’s faith when most days I AM unsure of my own.

The politics, the gods, the very insignificant pigment of our skin have us at each others throats. The division is reaching critical mass. All the while those with a wild desire to manipulate the masses are laughing all the way to the gold vault. We’ve been had. Don’t you see?

Let’s not parse words, freedom is the hardest job on the planet. You have to work. The important thing is that we all have the ability to pluck an idea or desire from thin air and paint it into existence. The work to keep this up is our only guarantee.

Don’t miss Friday’s live show on prepperbroadcasting.com as we examine division in the nation and how we are losing ground in this battle because of it.
