Today I made a display table outside the Relief Society room to encourage building up the food supply since it is the theme of the month. As you can see, it was complete with the cannery order forms for people to take at will. Next week I will be collecting all the orders and we will be going to the cannery on November 4th. This will be the first time in around six months. I told them in the Provident Living Minute that I am expecting a lot of participation this month. I think I laid it on thick last week when I told them that I want us to be faithful and do what the prophet has commanded in building a food supply.
When I spoke to them during the Provident Living Minute, I passed around the sign up, gave them canning recipes for apples since they are in season, with a reference to D&C 89:10-11 where it talks about eating fruit in its season and then testified that as we preserve our food in its season, we are obeying the word of wisdom.
Then I read them the scripture passage I had attached to the recipe cards I handed out (sorry I don't have a picture of that, however you can find the recipes here). And passed around a can of the dried apple chips from the cannery for them to try. Some of them had never tasted them before and had asked me about them during the "don't forget the treat" Provident Living Minute. So I decided to let them have some. They LOVED it!
Hope this loads you with more fun and happy living ideas. Till next time, have a wonderfully PROVIDENT life!
