In Case of Emergency

This post is in response to a challenge by Amy over at homesteadrevival.blogspot.com
She would like anyone to come up with a meal that you can prepare in case of emergency and where you do not have power or water. That's not far fetch for us here. We have well water and when the power goes we have no pump for water. We have been caught off guard before, so we try have water saved.
She wrote about how the first 72 hours are the hardest because most people will be in shock and thinking about fixing meals is not thought of. So we should put together enough meals for this time span in a box or container. Meals where it takes no water or heat. Unless you have a wood stove or campfire. I went for no heat even thou I do have a wood stove so that is what I can use if needed.
So the meal I thought of was for breakfast for 2, since that's what we have just "the man of the place" and I.

1 cup of instant oatmeal
some walnuts (this is a good snack food)
raisins (also a good snack food)
Brown sugar to taste
1/2 cup of shelf stable milk or soy milk

Mix it all in a bowl and let it set for 5 mins or until soften.

I would also have some fruit or vegetable juice

If you think of one, you can post it on Amy's blog or here as a comment.

Till next time

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
