I really love to cook and I really love to cook with my food storage! (This blog makes that statement self-evident, right?…lol) When I had my first child, I realized it was really up to me to make sure dinner got on the table. (Don’t ask me why I didn’t feel that accountability before…it’s probably because I wanted my kids to have good, delicious food like my mom had always prepared for us) When I discovered how easy it was to cook with food storage, I felt like it was magic! My pantry was full of cooking short-cuts: sliced and peeled apples, chopped onions, bell peppers and celery, cooked beans, chicken and corn…and the list goes on and on. I’m amazed at how much time and money it saves me every day to cook with my food storage. Here is one recipe that ordered at Chili’s will cost you around $9, I can make it at home for about $3. Plus, I can make it in the morning and have it ready to cook around dinner. I always love looking like a super mom, lol. This recipe is made so easy with food storage canned beans, corn, and chicken and dried bell peppers.
