December Provident Living Challenges
Do one of these by the January 2012 Relief Society meeting and win a prize!
Give at least two Christmas gifts which are “Food Storage” or “Emergency Preparedness” related.
To give you some ideas.....
On FoodStorageMadeEasy.net, in 2009 they did a whole “Food Storage” Twelve Days of Christmas, with gift suggestions for each day. I have put links on my blog http://gottawannaneedagettaprepared.blogspot.com/ to each of their “days of Christmas”, so you can easily find them from there.
on day 6 they give suggestions for gifts which include “grains”.
on day 8 the gifts are “baking ingredients”.
On each day, they include a free/under $1 gift, a $5-$20 gift, and a more expensive option, so there is something for every budget.
Browse the website “http://myfoodstoragecookbook.com/
and THEN MAKE ONE OF HER RECIPES.
Discover the great dishes she makes using 100% shelf stable ingredients. She usually includes a photo of all the ingredients which are included in that recipe.
When you use one of her recipes, please report back by email so we can see your comments. We all like to know about yummy food!
And I hope you will buy all the ingredients to make that recipe 13 times for one of your Three Month Supply meals.
Here are a few I thought looked delicious:
Balsamic Tortellini- takes less than 5 minutes to make.
Hot Ham Rolls
Creamy Chicken Enchiladas.
Homemade Cheese Ravioli (If you want to be a show-off, follow the instructions for this one. In it, she teaches how to make ravioli using a ravioli rolling pin, and makes mozzarella from scratch using powdered milk!)
