It's week #1 in October....and the focus item is Canned Meats

This week, our focus is on stocking up...on Canned Meats.  Here, you see I have hit the local Caselot sale.  I use these for sandwiches, for soups, and sometimes casseroles.  I love the convenience of canned meats because the cooking has been done and they are ready at any time.

Also, in previous posts, I have shown you how to can your own meats.  Here are some links to help you see that this is really a simple process, and can be much less expensive than purchasing canned meats as above.  You should know me by now, I can't pay full price for anything without cause.  So, if I have purchased previously canned meats, you know they were because they were a screamin' deal.

Canned Hamburger

Now, I used some of my hamburger yesterday to make a Taco Soup.  Fast, easy, and delicious.  Just think about the time and delicious meals you can prepare for your family by having Canned Meats on hand!

Be careful when purchasing canned meat. Before you purchase a case, I would purchase 1 can and taste it. A couple of years ago I purchased Hormel canned meat for my food storage and hated the taste. For me, it tasted like dog food. I ended up sending it all to the food bank. It was a waste of money. I however LOVE my own canned chicken and use it at least weekly. I hate wasting food - so be cautious in stocking up big cases of something you haven't tried. (From lessons learned). Also, you may like it after trying 1 can and then can go purchase the case - I just found out that I don't like store canned meat - yuck.

Thank you for your comment. I agree it is important to 'try before you buy'.
