Save the Date...."Making your own mixes from Food Storage Staples"


"I'm too busy to use my food storage! It is so much easier to use a mix or convenience food after a long hard day!" Have you ever felt this way? I can't think of anyone who hasn't. The LRH is going to teach you have to make your own mixes with many of the Food Storage staples that we all have in our storage. This is not only convenient, but helps rotate through you Food Storage as well.

The LRH is teaching a class entitled "Making Mixes from your Food Storage staples". The above picture is one example. On the left is a Condensed Soup mix, on the right is the equivalent in "cans". The mix is one-fourth the cost of the 9 cans purchased from your local Grocery store. There are many others as well. Categories include: spice mixes, bread mixes, Condiments and Dressing mixes, Dessert mixes, Drink mixes (i.e. lemonade etc), Side dishes, Soups, and even Easy Bake Oven mixes.

Please save July 16th date!. The class will begin at 7:00 at LRH's home. Hand's on demonstrations will be available as well. Plan to come learn and have fun with your neighbors!

This is a great idea, and I would love to teach it in our ward. Where did you get this information, and how can I get my hands on it?
I love your site!

Amy, I am really glad you enjoy this little blog. In regard to the information, I have researched it online, read books, and even experimented. Yes, LRH is a bit overzealous! However, if you happen to be in Utah County, please comment with your email address so that I can contact you.

Can you post your recipes or email them to me so that I can use them and see if my family likes them?

I have done extensive research on this subject. However, try www.budget101.com. They seem to have a lot to consider trying. It's really fun and surprisingly inexpensive to do this! Good luck!
