Wow, That’s a Lot…

I wish I’d taken pictures of the bulk food order we picked up from the LDS Cannery in Slidell last week…

It was on this big flat cart, like you use at Lowe’s, and it totally filled up the back of my Tahoe (that was before Clyde – wait, you didn’t read the story about Clyde??).

As you can see, R.T. enjoys the wheat berries straight out of the bag!

All in all, we got:

  • 3 bags of wheat (25 lbs. each)
  • 1 bag of black beans
  • 1 bag of white beans (great northern)
  • 1 bag of sugar
  • 1 bag of oats
  • 1 box of potato flakes
  • 1 box of rice
  • 1 box of spaghetti
  • 1 box of macaroni
  • 1 box of powdered milk
  • Plus a package of 100 Oxygen Absorbers to package with the food for storage

Naturally, we got home to discover that we didn’t have enough of the 5-gallon buckets accumulated to store it all! It’s been slow going getting them from the Commissary bakery, but I have a couple of other places to try now, so maybe we can get caught up.

I’ve also gotten in with a group of ladies on an order for combined shipping, to get some Gamma Lids – that will resolve my issues with a couple of buckets I have that are lidless, as well as making life easier in general. (They snap on with a gasket like the regular lids, then the center part screws open (but seals tight) for access).

That’s a lot of supplies! Time to organize the “pantry” space in the back hall closet…
