Yesterday I started my plan of attack, filling baggies with dried fruit and nuts. I also wanted to bring vegetable sticks, but when I opened the produce drawer in the refrigerator there wasn't much there. I didn't particularly want to go to the grocery store, so I figured I'd have to be creative. The one thing I did have plenty of was pumpkin puree, but that would be hard to eat on the go. I wondered if I could use my food dehydrator to make pumpkin leather.

The USDA says a serving of vegetables is a half cup, so I cut the leather into quarters and rolled each into a log. I slid a couple into a bag and set the bag with my food stash. I'm pretty sure they won't make it back home.
