Food Storage: The Reason I Stink at Being Mormon



Hello! I'm Jia and I'm a Mormon. Normal might be a bit of a stretch though. Either way I was asked to be a contributor here at Normal Mormons and I am very honored by that request. (I normally blog over at Modern Molly Mormon, and I think it's okay for me to link my own blog, because the Normal Mormon herself blogs over there as one of my contributors.)

Anyways, I wanted to do a semi-follow up to the last post. Converts are very different from life long Mormons. But there are also the small things in us all that makes us a little less "Mormon". I know a Bishop who drinks Dr. Pepper like it's going out of style. A Relief Society President who doesn't scrapbook. A Primary Teacher who doesn't know the Primary songs. And me my friends? I hate food storage.

Don't get me wrong, I like having food storage, and eating food storage, but the moment anyone says "Cannery" to me, my brain somehow shuts off completely. Almost the same way it does when I hear "Genealogy". I don't know how to do it, so I shut down a bit and leave it to the pros. However, one day I'm certain I'll be called do head up the Cannery or something along side it, therefore I must learn! But how? Afterall, going up to anyone and saying, "Excuse me, but what's a Cannery?" Just labels you a convert! And since I've actually been a member for over 8 years, it might also label me pretty stupid too LOL!

But I have however found some great links on the internet to provide information regarding food storage for those of us who are a little more inept than the rest of the congregation:

I stink at this too. I found a book called Food Storage for the Clueless that was really helpful though.

There's very little comment moderation at Normal Mormons as everyone has a voice that should be heard! (Just keep it clean why doncha?)
