These buns can be made from any bread dough recipe. One loaf of bread dough is enough to cover all the filling. Either make up a batch in your bread machine or set aside one loaf worth when baking your families favorite.
My “freeze dried” filling was inspired by a filling made by The Pampered Chef. My thanks to the Chef! Continue reading
Pasta salad is perfect almost anywhere — at a picnic, next to barbecue, alongside fried chicken or with a sandwich. Creamy and cool, it always makes me think of summer! –Mellyn Continue reading
Potato salad is one of my favorites (especially with baked beans!). I had some cooked lentils on hand when I was making this and decided to experiment. The result was great! And lentils are so good for you — they have the 3rd highest protein content of any legume or nut and are also high in iron, folate, fiber and Vitamin B1. In addition, they store well and cook fast compared to other legumes. Go lentils! –Mellyn

Food storage is meant to sustain life, but this doesn’t mean it has to be fattening! This is one of my favorite “Light” lunches. When I mix it up this way, I get a high-protein lunch that is filling for under 300 calories. Smart, healthy and food storage! Can it get any better? Continue reading
To add some variety to my storage, I like to have some meals that are served “cold.” This original creation whips up in minutes and has a delightful, fresh taste that’s a contrast to the usual hot meals we associate with food storage. The curry adds a nice flavor, and I love the sweet from the mandarins and craisins. –Mellyn
This sandwich is made from a simple can of turkey, but coupled with the flavor of the dressing and the berries, it reminds me of wonderful holiday leftovers.
