This week we are working on getting together a supply of canned beans and fish. The challenge comes in preparing a dish with either of those ingredients!
A couple of weeks ago, I actually decided to branch out and make a dish with canned salmon. I had never tried canned salmon before but found a pasta dish that incorporated it. I picked up some canned salmon during my grocery trip and was really excited to try it!
When it came time to cook the dish, I opened the can and was turned off by how it looked. We never had canned salmon growing up, or really anything more than tuna, so I didnâ€™t know what to expect. My pregnant nose couldnâ€™t handle the fish, and I actually opted to take the fish out of the dish. Pretty sad, I know.
However, I now know that if it came down to using our food storage supply, we probably wouldnâ€™t be too happy with canned salmon. Part of the challenge in collecting food storage is storing foods we would actually eat if we needed to. Cooking a recipe with the collected supplies is a great way to weed out ingredients that might not make the cut for your food supply.
Letâ€™s just say, Iâ€™ll be collecting canned tuna for this challenge.
Black Bean Recipe
This week, I was able to cook a dish with black beans that we eat fairly often. These Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos from Cooking Classy are one of our favorites!
Finding a recipe that doesnâ€™t involve meat that my husband will love is a little bit tough. But we all enjoy these yummy tacos.
