Food storage has been a big topic of conversation lately. For our quarterly Relief Society Meeting, a sign-up sheet went around to make a dish from our food storage for everyone to taste test. I made a simple generic rice-a-roni dish, since it was quick, easy and from items I keep in my food storage. I didn’t know they would hand out awards, but my dish won the “Most Likely to Actually Make” award! Woot!
My food storage is made up of foods that we eat regularly. In my cupboard, I have bottled water and Capri Sun, canned fruits and veggies (I have learned that canned potatoes are awesome because they are ready for stew or curry), rice, soups, beans, fried onions (for green bean casserole), cereals, sugar, flour, cake mixes, etc. In my freezer, I have chicken, bacon, butter, cheese (which gets crumbly after it is thawed, but that won’t matter if you’re using it to cook or bake with, or if you are crumbling it on top of a dish), cream cheese, veggies, and pizzas. I don’t go crazy with it, I just make sure that I keep the freezer and cabinets stocked and that is plenty of storage for my little family.
How does your family do food storage?
