Food Storage Meals & Menu Planning - Dinner: Spaghetti!

Today's Dinner Menu: Spaghetti!
Picture: I used plain sauce and added some of my
bottled stew meat and a little fresh parsley.
Spaghetti is one of the best shelf-stable meals
you can store!
Pasta has a shelf-life of 30 years when you
put it into #10 cans with an oxypack and seal it.
The Drypack Cannery will let you check the
canner out for FREE!
Take it home, and can whatever kinds of
pasta you would like.
The Sauce can be homemade, bottled, from a can, or from a
combination of cans and a packet mix.
This is an EASY way to quickly build your Food Storage.
Spaghetti Sauce and Pasta are very inexpensive.
Our Challenge for YOU:
Purchase enough to make 12 Meals!
You can do it for around - $24.00.
Just in case you would like to make your own sauce . . .

This would be a fabulous way for me to cycle all of the tomato sauce and chunks I already have. It will get USED that way rather than buying Ragu. Thanks!
