Learn to Use What You Store
"Every father and mother are the family’s storekeepers. They should store whatever their own family would like to have in the case of an emergency. . . . Some have said, “We have followed this counsel in the past and have never had need to use our year’s supply, so we have difficulty keeping this in mind as a major priority.” Perhaps following this counsel could be the reason why they have not needed to use their reserve. By continued rotation of the supply it can be kept usable with no waste" (James E. Faust, in Conference Report, Apr. 1986, 26; or Ensign, May 1986, 22).

Our favorite taco soup
half to one lb hamburger browned and drained, I use half or less
15 oz diced tomatoes
15 oz can kidney beans rinsed and drained
1 package taco seasoning
2-8 oz cans tomato sauce
pinch of garlic
