Food Storage Tip of the Month


2 week dinner menu

I have found a really easy way to collect all of your food storage, is to create a menu. Doing this you will know exactly what ingriedients you need and how much. You can do a 1 week menu (7 dinners), or a 2 week menu (14 dinners).

How this changes your food storage

You will only be storing things you know you eat.

You know what you will be making with the ingredients when you rotate them out.

You know the amount your buying will last the entire time.

I love this! There is no guessing if the amount your buying will be to much or to litte. You don't have to find some obscure recipe to use your storage. It's simple and can be done for breakfasts and lunches too. Best of all you know your families will like the meals and eats them.

I encourage you all to take time this month to come up with your own menu. Attached is a sample of my personal 2 week dinner menu.

Anyone who is willing to share their menus please send them to me so I can post them. Thanks
