Saturday: Rotating your food storage?

First off, next week is Q&A week here at Safely Gathered In. During our giveaway week at the beginning of June, we asked YOU what some of your biggest food storage questions are, and we'll be answering them next week. We got so many great questions that we won't be able to answer them all in one week, but we'll answer as many as we can! And whatever we don't get to, we'll answer during another Q&A week later this summer.

To rotate my food storage this week, I made a casserole to put in the freezer. I'm having a baby any day now, and it will be nice to have some ready-made meals stored up. This week I made Easy Chicken and Rice from our recipes page. Since I was rotating (not restricted to pantry-only food), I added some cheese to the top, and I used frozen chicken instead of canned.

What did you make this week from your food storage? Post about it on your blog and leave your link below!

Note: Please remember that this rotation link is to share what meal you or your family cooked out of your food storage this week. Links promoting merchandise or websites will be deleted. Please link directly to your 3-Month Supply Rotation post.

This week, when I was making pancakes,I made about 25 extra pancakes (more on the smaller size) and put them into the freezer. That way, on those mornings when I just don't want to heat up the kitchen this summer... the kids can pull out how ever many they want and microwave them to perfection.
It saves me so much time in the long run.

That's funny, I did the exact same thing with pancakes this week. I'm actually a really big fan of bottling meat, I did a ton of London Broil and can just open up a jar of perfectly cooked roast and make up some dehydrated potatoes and frozen vegetables (I have canned, but prefer frozen if it's on hand) and voila, a yummy and very quick meal!
