I am a person that likes to stock up on items. I think that a big part of this behavior comes from being LDS. We are frequently reminded that we should have food stored up in case of emergency. Due to our upcoming move we have switched from stocking up mode to eating mode. I did a big stock up on chicken and ground beef early in March but since then our grocery shopping has been limited to milk, fresh fruit and other perishable items.
It has been a very interesting experiment to see how well we could eat off our food storage and I am quite pleased by how well we are eating. I think I may have over done it a bit on the chicken, but Evan and Harry love eating chicken. They will frequently eat more than I will and Evan often asks to have chicken for dinner. It is nice to know that my food storage practices are working and that should something happen we would be able to eat pretty normally for a time.
Now that I have quality down I will have to work on quantity. We don't even have close to a year's supply of food, but then I am not going to sweat that one too much. With all of our moving around it really is not too practical to have a massive food storage.
