We have food storage. I'm just not sure how much, since we're buying and using it constantly. Today I made a list of seven different breakfasts and listed how much of each ingredient we would need for three months' worth.
Cream of wheat
Peanut butter granola
This is actually what we eat for breakfast most of the time, with the addition of eggs. We would really miss eggs if we couldn't get to the grocery store! I have planned for a flaxseed egg replacement in the pancakes and waffles.
I am planning two amounts for dry milk. We've been using instant from the grocery store, but I also store non-instant from the LDS cannery. Instant milk has air incorporated into it, so the amounts needed are greater (1/3 cup for each cup of milk vs. 3 tablespoons for each cup of milk).
If anyone is interested in seeing the full meal plan for four, let me know and I can post it or email it to you.
