Every once in awhile, a group of crazy Oregon gals gets together for Ladies Night Out. It should, however, really be called Ladies Night IN, because we never go anywhere. We just commandeer someone's home, and spend time with one another talking about babies and birth, marriage and husbands, the gospel, and of course, food. Food, food, food, food. It's what we do best.
A month or three ago *ahem - pay no mind that I'm just NOW getting to writing a post on this* the lovely Naomi Raven and I had an idea for a special Ladies Night In. A food storage sampler! We would buy a bunch of food storage from WalMart and taste test it. All of it. Below you will find the results...
The ever-amazing Naomi opened her home to us for this event. She has to be one of the coolest women I have ever known!

Man shall not live by bread alone... but it dang sure helps!! ; p
The gals chatting...
The cheese sauce was a little scary. It tastes great, I assure you,
but you'd better want cheese REALLY bad because it is not aesthetically pleasing whatsoever!!
The soup base was DELICIOUS! We added absolutely no spices, no salt, etc - it was wonderful by itself. A great must-have for every emergency pantry!!
We made chocolate shakes with the "Morning Moo" and ice cream. SO good.
Some of the ladies and their chitlins...
One Word: Spiff-E Whip... Okay two words. Kind of.
And our fizzy peach drink. YUM!
