Adventures in Food Storage

My husband and his family have an odd obsession with food storage. Not that I don't appreciate it--if there's ever a natural disaster, or escalating gas prices force the minimization of food transport to WalMart--we're totally set. If you ever need some canned tomatoes or whole wheat rotini, you just let me know!

So, anyhow, when we went up to Vernal last weekend for D's beautiful sister's graduation, my mother-in-law thought it would be tons of fun to host a little canning party. Well, tons of fun it was, and I have the pictures, as well as 36 cans of assorted grain mix to prove it!

Our final product:

In case you're wondering, it's an awesome workout to bend and scoop oats out of 6 ginormous bags into little tin cans and then lift them into your car. ;)

I know there's a facetious tone to this post, but we really did have a great time, and we really appreciate all the emergency food supplies. For more interesting adventures in food preparation click here to see what else I got to experiment with!
