Survival Knife Review: C.T. Fischer Nessmuk Knife

This Nessmuk-style knife is a winner!
Sometimes a knife just looks right, and that's what drew my eye to an ad for a "Nessmuk" knife.  It looked like a quality workhorse.
For a little background here, George Washington Sears, 1821-1890, is better known by his pen name of "Nessmuk". He wrote one of the first wilderness survival books,  "Woodcraft," in 1884 and was a regular contributor to "Forest and Stream Magazine."
He had strong opinions on survival gear, and designed several pieces, including this type of knife.
So when I saw a Nessmuk-style knife  advertised by C.T. Fischer Knives, based in Elk City, Idaho, I just had to try one out .
Here's my thoughts on the Nessmuk after testing it: click here to read the review!

Garlic Asparagus With Pasta and Lemon Cream Sauce

It's a good idea to practice with and use your storage food whenever possible to become a good cook with the foods.
But this recipe from “Jan’s Fabulous Food Storage Recipes" pushed beyond “tasty” into  “gourmet”!
Since there are a lot of fresh vegetables around right now, you can obviously substitute fresh veggies for the dehydrated or freeze dried selections.
Try this recipe and you’ll realize the potential for how good storage food can taste!
