Helpful website

I found this website and thought it helpful. It's great if you not sure where to begin with this whole storage idea. http://extension.usu.edu/files/publications/publication/FN_500.pdf

Marilyn's good idea.

At our last meeting we were talking about a BYU TV program where they were discussing 'Grains and Legumes' - they recommended using a pressure cooker to cook up wheat, barley, oats or brown rice, then storing them in the fridge to use throughout the week.

Marilyn tried wheat in the slow cooker and it worked.

She used 1 cup of wheat to 2.5 cups water and cooked on low overnight - Marilyn said next time she would use 1 cup wheat to 3 cups water.

Marilyn has used the wheat in a couple of recipes and said it was great.

For Marilyn - Donna's Stew Recipe for the Slow Cooker

500g lamb chops (or other stew meat) - browned and chopped
2 large potatoes - peeled and chopped
2 onion - peeled and chopped
1 can tomato soup
1 can peas
1 can beans
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can baked beans

Mix all in the slow cooker and cook on low all day. Of course we have very few left overs but this looks like it would freeze well too.
