Food Storage Class

Wed. March 4th, 7pm Stoneridge Clubhouse

My friend Arlene will be here to teach a Food Storage Class.
She'll demo some recipes from her book '"The Ultimate Food Storage Cookbook" and answer all of our food storage questions! (I've got a lot)
It will cost $2.oo/person (to help cover the cost of the food we'll sample)

If you want to come, call me or let me know here. I have to cap the class at 35 people

I'm a little obsessed with two things right now....sewing and food storage.

I'm not even going to get into the sewing thing, But I do want to talk about food storage....why? Why me and why now? I can think of a LOT of things I'd LOVE to spend our tax returns on, (Like going to Florida to see Barb & baby Preston) but I've got food storage on the brain. I feel like a sponge just soaking up all the information I can get my hands on. And I want to know it all right now! I have so many Questions...Like how to sprout wheat... cook beans from dry form and make them taste good...and what would I do with a big container of honey(like the ones they sell at costco) once I opened it, just spoon out what I needed??

I know a lady, her name is Arlene. She was a seamstress at the Bridal Shop I work for. A few years ago she gave me a "food storage cook book" that she had written and sold through deseret book, and I took it and put it with my other cook books and never looked at it until I started thinking about food storage about 6 months ago. Well, I just read it and realized that Arlene is a mega food storage guru and I could ask her all my I called her and I've been using her for her talent ever since!

But I was thinking it would be cool to have her come to the clubhouse where we live and have a food storage Q & A night with anyone who was interested. We're all on different "food storage IQ levels" so we could ask her what we wanted to learn more about. I called her and she said she'd love to do it. She said she could demo some recipes. I want to learn different ways to cook wheat...the gluten stuff? I could pick her brain for weeks, she really knows her stuff.

If you are interested in setting something like this up, let me know and I'll schedule the clubhouse!

Suz told me about this website and I really like it. It's a "not so overwhelming" approach to food storage and it's got some recipes that i'd actually make!

Dutch Oven Dinner

This is our attempt at a decent family snap shot...Chad couldn't stop stuffing his face long enough to smile without a mouthful(to his credit-the food was really good), and Bridger was throwing a fit because I wouldn't let him in the Fire!

Katie and the boys

We found the perfect "time out" chair

Bridger & Kalen

The weather in St George last week was BEAUTIFUL, So we got with our friends the Kelly's to do a last minute dutch oven shmorgasborge!
I am so thankful to live where it's warm...Even the thought of spring & summer makes me so happy!!!
