Food Storage

I am rededicating myself to my FOOD STORAGE! I have not been very good about cooking with the storage I have and it's time I begin again. Carol sent me a site to a great food storage site that I really took time to read today and another one I found from that site. It has great recipes and ideas of ways to restock your food storage, or "how to" start from scratch. I have a mother-in-law who can make ANYTHING from wheat and I've decided that I need to take advantage of these resources and jump on the wagon to make myself and my family more prepared.

"If ye are prepared ye shall not fear" (D&C 38:30)

And it's time I listen to our leaders and take action in making my family MORE PREPARED!

This next year I will be better at gathering those things I get from my garden, buying from farmers markets in bulk and canning.

Great Recipe Site I found today:

What are some things you do for Food Storage, 72 Hr Kits, and other Emergency Preparedness?

Hear, hear! I bought a really awesome wheat grinder about 6 months ago and have only made 2 loaves of bread! Is that sick or what?! I am with you babe! I too am trying to get better at this. Good Luck!

You should definately take advantage that Maxine can teach you so much (and then pass it on to me :)) I usaully just go to Sam's once a month to stock up in addition to my weekly grocery shopping trips. I learned the hard way to store what you eat. We threw away so much food when we moved because we stored it away and let it expire. The one thing I am almost afraid of is wheat. I have no idea where to even start with it.

I found your blog when I was doing some food storage research.

If you want any other food storage ideas, feel free to check out our blog, too. We also do projects like emergency car kits and 72-hour kits (which we are currently working on).

Anyway, good luck with your food storage/emergency prep!
