I have finally decided that the time is now to do my food storage. We had a talk in church recently and someone said, "Get rid of the excuses and just do it!" Or at least that's how it sounded to me.
I got on the church website and things are very different from when I got married and was calculating how much of what I needed. The church now says store a 3 month supply of what we use daily and then for a longer-term supply, store wheat (or rice or other grains) and beans. That's it! It did say on the Provident Living site that you could also supplement your storage with dried milk, baking powder, salt, oil and something else. This sure is different than the list that I have been looking at for years with tons of stuff on it that I don't use in my cooking.
Does anyone have any good suggestions of meals that can be stored easily? Or tips on how to keep your food in good order?
This is an exciting thing for me. I finally feel like I am doing something about food storage! And it seems do-able! Yipee! Now, who's gonna watch my 4 kids while I do some serious grocery shopping?
