Weekly Assignment and Food Storage Ideas (Week of June 10th)

Hi Carson Ward Family, Family and Friends,


"How blessed we are, my brothers and sisters, to have the restored gospel of Jesus Christ in our lives and in our hearts." President Thomas S. Monson

Day to day we face the struggles of life. With God's help, we need not fear the future. In the midst of world calamity we have the Spirit of the Holy Ghost. We each need to live our daily life that will allow the Holy Ghost to be our constant companion, to guide us, to help us, to protect us. If we pray to our Heavenly Father and ask, we will receive revelation to help us and our family. Being Spiritually prepared is so important. It will help us become Temporally prepared.

June Goals: Shelter and Adding Pastas and Tomatoes to our Food Storage

Weekly Assignment--Shelter:

There may be times when your home may become your shelter. If there was a pandemic or some type of chemical issue, you may need to stay inside your home and protect your family from any type of germs or chemicals from entering. You may be advised by local government authorities to cover all your windows, doors and anything that would allow germs or chemicals to enter your home.

This week add the following to your emergency shelter equipment and keep them with all your emergency shelter equipment:

1) Large heavy plastic sheeting, either purchase in a roll or in individual packages. You will need enough to cover all your windows, doors and any openings in your home.
2) Purchase enough duct tape to go around each window, and any other openings to secure the plastic in place.

Note: Your can purchase both of these items above from any home improvement store.

Weekly Assignment--Adding Pastas and Tomatoes to your Food Storage:

1) Continue to add more packages/boxes of pastas to your Food Storage.
2) Continue to add more tomatoes to your Food Storage. Adding a varieties and different types to store will give you more choices when cooking.

Note: See last weeks posting (June 3rd) and Sunday's display table and handouts for information on how, how much, where and what to store.

Food Storage Idea:  A yummy recipe using your pasta and tomatoes

Spaghetti Casserole

1 pound hamburger or ground turkey/chicken
1 can tomato sauce
1 can diced tomatoes (great way to use your diced frozen tomatoes or tomatoes canned in Mason jars)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 small onion, chopped
1 package of dried or canned mushrooms (optional)
1/4 pound grated cheese
1 pound (package) of spaghetti

Brown the meat, turkey or chicken with the onion and garlic, add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, mushrooms and seasonings. Simmer for 20 minutes, covered. Cook spaghetti, drain and add to meat sauce. Add grated cheese and mix. Pour into a casserole dish and top with more grated cheese. Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees. This may be stored in the freezer and bakes when desired. .

Emergency Preparedness Idea:

It does not rain as much here as it does in other parts of the county, but when it does it is a great opportunity to store water. If you have rain gutters on your house, purchase the items in the video to construct a rain barrel. This is an extra good source of "free"water. You can circulate the water by placing a water spout and attach your hose to water your vegetable garden. It is also a great source of water for bathing and cleaning up. Go to YouTube for more video ideas.

Remember: Your comments, experiences and ideas are most appreciated.
