jasper12,

I couldn't rep you again but you deserve it for that bottle of Tabasco, the sauce that puts the other pepper sauces to shame.

Now let's not forget this one.

Yessiree; it's MSG!!!

I once ate nothing but Ramen noodles for 6 weeks. Also tried peanut butter and tang mixed with instant oatmeal, nothing else for 6 weeks. People have no discipline anymore. A week on canned food is nothing at all, especially if much of it is FRUIT.

Sriracha or "rooster sauce" - love this chile sauce!

Also see Squirrel thread in this section of the forum. I'm sure the mix with sriracha would be great! Lots of squirrels in New York!

There have been times we ate from food stores during weather emergencies, but those meals were pretty much like what we usually eat. The reason is because we have a few alternative cooking sources and are not dependant on the stove or a grill to prepare hot food and beverages. That idiot who burned down is home could have easily prepared meals in his garage with a backpacking stove or even in his home with the small type of butane stove (usually used by chefs when on catering locations to make things like omelettes etc). The thing is, most people don't really prepare, sad to say.

Sure, the hubby and I have long-term food stores for extreme emergencies. But we prefer not to tap into those when we have perfectly good food in our pantry and fridge. When we know power might be going out, we make ice well in advance of the emergency and fill a couple of coolers with it, in case we need to move items from the fridge to the coolers to keep them safe. short-term power outages are dealt with in much the same way, except we are usually able to buy a large bag of ice if necessary. The short term sudden outages are not like knowing in advance that a hurricane is arriving though, or a major storm, and anyone should be able to prepare for those. Most people just don't really see the need to prepare though. They are just too used to groceries being available only a few minutes away whenever needed.

And by the way, making ice for emergency use is a pretty easy thing, no need for an icemaker. Just freeze water in empty plastic bottles, making sure you leave room for the ice to expand. Or use ziplock freezer bags. The best way to freeze those is by placing them on a baking sheet so they lay flat while freezing, making them freeze faster and making them more useful to put around the food in a cooler. I prefer the kind with an actual zipper on the top, they are a little more secure than the other type in my estimation, though that is just my own personal preference.

Most of the time we already have water frozen in the chest freezer, since I keep it there to use up empty space, keeping my freezer more efficient.
