Hi Trash.. I agree with keeping a variety of food on hand. I do the longterm beans/rice, etc but I also have plenty of what you would call comfort foods, chocolate, cake mixes, drink mixes etc. including plenty of easy to fix processed foods. Try to eat the healthy stuff but hey life aint worth living without a little junk food and sometimes you just need the convenience of an easy to fix meal, love some cheap mac and cheese :) You said you do like to eat meat, have you ever considered small scale livestock such as rabbits or urban chickens. Would that be possible where you live? We live in a rural area, so keeping animals is not a problem. Started with chickens, immediate payback with great eggs daily and added rabbits. Both are relatively easy to keep and quiet in an urban setting, not to mention great additions of poo for the compost, the rabbit poo can even be put directly on the garden without harming the plants. They also eat plenty of garden/kitchen scraps too. We have since gone on to a few cows and my son keeps goats and pigs. We have no problems with meat/egg supply, of course one would have to be Ok with butchering an animal, but with my husband and son being raised on a farm, this was not a problem. Was just curious if you had ever considered chickens or rabbits. Good score on those apples too.. I had to buy some at the local orchard this weekend.. wish I could find some abandoned fruit trees :)
