    Good luck. The church may have waited too late.

    There's an asian market near us that have pallets of rice sitting on the floor anyways, don't know what kind of rice it is or if they have a limit. 50lb. bags I think. Folks over look the asian stores, they eat a lot of rice.

    All the 25 and 50 pound bags of rice at the Asian market I go to is gone and everywhere else for that matter.

    Theirs was always 5-8 dollars a bag more expensive than the wholesale club I belong to.

    From January to 3 weeks ago I picked up 100 extra pounds of it.

    I was at Sam's today and they had rice back in stock as well as beans. They do have a 1 item limit so several people can go in a purchase 1 each and you'll start building up your stock.

    Flour is gone and the guy working said he hadn't seen a delivery of yeast in a long time. Time to see how long my yeast will hold up. Out of 3 stores only 1 had fresh flour and fortunately it was bread flour. One item on my bucket list is to bake my own bread.

    I also went to Tom Thumb and Kroger. The shelves are starting to get filled again, they must have just had a bread delivery because those shelves were nearly full. Still, there are many gaps there in many other areas. We are good on most things but fresh fruit, veggies and ice cream. Fortunately the Blue Bell guy is doing his job and the freezer was full.

    I use ap flour in place of bread flour--for making bread. It works absolutely fine. Follow this dear lady's advice and it'll turn out delicious and fluffy. I'm not sure what type of flour she uses and in a pinch you can leave out the oil, too. No kidding.



    A 50 lb bag of flour at Costco used to go for $14.00. Check my post #20. Do you know what it's going for on Amazon now? Cheapest on Amazon is south of $95.00 And you know what? It may be worth it to pay that as opposed to having to buy it already made. Who knows what's going on with flour shipments et al? I truly don't.

    I don't know where you are in PA, but we bought ours at small valley mill last year. It might see if there are any grain mills near you and give them a call.
