No real changes here. Biggest change was I invested in a second 500 box of coin tissues. Essentially a good sized square of paper/cloth similar in weave to a handi wipe. Compressed into something the size of 2 lifesavers stuck together. A few drops of water and it unrolls to become whatever you need.
They work good for cleaning, rinse them out, let them dry, cut them in half and they would do fine as TP. Handy for camping as they have low weight/bulk.
Mostly my wife and I have been preparing for the end of the world for 24 years. Most of those years money was tight so it was a slow thing. Keeping pantry and freezer stocked. Extra supply's of long storing foods like beans, rice, pasta, sugar, salt. All vacuum sealed and stored where nothing can get to it.
Mostly a matter of buying things we aleady use when they are on sale. Moving the latest purchases to the bottom/back. Oldest are up top/front where they get used as needed. Stacks of cans of Tuna, the cheapest Salmon, Hormel Chili with beans, Ramen.
We just took a flyer on 12 uits of Well pak Ramen/stir fry noodles. Ate half of the first package last night. Boils in 3 minutes and it is done.
Slightly larger than the Ramen Noodles with a bit more yellow color. They were amazingly tasty with just a bit of chicken broth from a whole roasted chicken on top and a pinch of salt.
If you eat ramen noodles at all I think you'll find these are better. Each package contains 2 bricks of dried noodles. Even with a smallish pan easy to get them into the water whole, or break down to whatever size you like. A little broth, drippings from whatever else your cooking, etc makes them flavorful. All in all as a first time flyer in a new product I am impressed. Perhaps not quite the lo mein noodles I was searching for. But not bad at all. Today the other half will go into the chicken soup I make from the carcass of the chicken. To which I'll also add shredded carrots, celery perhaps some onion.
- Asian style chow mein stir-fry noodles
- Chuka soba
- Cook noodles in boiling water for 3 minutes
- Drain well and use to make stir-fry noodles
But first the skin, bones leftovers will be boiled for an hour with a chicken builon cube or 2, a touch of curry and poultry seasoning.
I'll then screen out all the bones. pick useable meat from the bones and discard the rest. Done right a 6$ whole chicken becomes food for 2-4 for 2 days with only minor additions and a bit of time. In this cool spring weather we have up here (snowed yesterday, twice) a nice hot tasty meal will go well.
