Last night I attended a breadmaking class that a lady in our ward holds every other month. It was my first time to attend. One of my callings at church (yes, I have 6 now) is now the Assistant Food Storage Specialist. So, I figured if I have that title, I better be it! So, now you are looking at a professional bread maker:) I ground wheat for the first time ever and made Whole Wheat Bread last night. Doesn't it look yummy? I'm so proud of myself! Joey and I dug right in last night and ate some with butter and honey. YUM. And then for breakfast, I heated some up and served it to the girls with butter and jam. They loved it and gobbled it up. It made me happy watching them eat it and love it. I felt like all motherly or somethin:) The extra loaves I bagged and put in the freezer. I've started mylar sealing this year and I love it. Our ward has a sealer at someones home and she opens up her home two days a month for people to come and use it. The bags are inexpensive and will keep things for years! I've been getting a good supply of basics: wheat/flour/sugar/oats, etc. and have been really working at getting our food storage together. It feels good to be doing it and it definitely makes us feel more prepared. It also feels good to be doing what the prophets of our church have told us to do. You never know what the future holds(especially now. . .:)! And I'm so glad I know how to actually grind wheat and make something with it! If any of you are in wards where a sealer and wheat grinder is available, I would really recommend trying it out if you haven't. Flour, mylar sealed, can last 30 years! And wheat, stored properly, can basically last forever! These are awesome machines that will help you so much with your food storage goals. So, there is my food storage plug. :) Do it!
