My food storage program consists of grocery store foods, freeze dried, dehydrated, and bulk stores such as rice, wheat, and beans. I have been thinking that I really need to inventory everything and come up with a menu system. Having a schedule of what we can and will prepare would likely take the edge off what will already be a very stressful time. It would just be one less thing to worry about. From there I started thinking about what I have and what my favorite “survival” meal would be – which I would want to ration out.
Beef stew with rice. Yup – that’s my favorite. Boil some rice and dump a can of beef stew on top of it. Lots of protein, carbs, and a decent amount of fat thrown in. Tasty with lots of energy!! Very little preparation as well.
Beef stew is not too expensive and stores well. Rice is ultra-cheap and can store for a very long time (Mylar bag, oxygen absorber). Another favorite of mine is peanut butter. Whether by itself or on crackers, bread, or whatever – a welcome treat. Pancakes rank up there as well which is good because mixes are cheap and can be bought as an “add water only” combo.
How about you? Have a favorite SHTF food?
