That is a good start for a pot full of "perpetual stew" if the 'S' really did 'HTF'...
In the Peoples Republic of Sanders and O'Cortez, we will quite likely need some good recipes for eating pets, critters, and possibly even zoo animals if we want to survive. Once the BernieBro's take power and turn us into Castro's Cuba, a nice hearty stew will be a great way to make any kind of meat taste good.

Seriously - if the goal is a warm spoonful of food for an empty belly, an old school pot of never ending soup can do a lot to keep folks healthy and motivated. Not much need for refrigeration once the democrats crash the economy so keeping a pot of stew constantly simmering over your survival fire eliminates the need to refrigerate the meats that cant be smoked or dehydrated.

So you didn't catch a squirrel today ?? Thats ok - there is still quite a few hunks of rabbit in the pot. Whatever can be shot, trapped, or picked during the day just gets cleaned and tossed into the pot. Smoked fish or dried meat can be held back while other proteins are added to the bottomless pot.



Of course, there is always coming to grips with the fact that life really does imitate art...

When SHTF after the Bernie-Bros and Cloward-Piven finally crash the economy, we can all look forward to Soylent Nutrition, Inc. to provide us with better, more affordable nutrition we can rest easy knowing that Soylent is working tirelessly to end world hunger hunger and global food insecurity.

I am always looking for low-carb protein treats.

The last one I tried was the RXBAR that Ice-T advertized.

They say low-carb, but all I get is cardboard flavor :mad:

Additionally, they claim low calories,, because they are less the 1 oz.

It's not a snack, it's one small bit-o-nuthing :mad:

Just be careful - before Soylent Green (which came out in 2022) there was Soylent Red and Soylent Yellow...
...you will notice from the photo that the berry and salted caramel come with Red and Yellow Labels.

2022 puts us two years into a Bernie Sanders presidency...
...and you would do well to remember that the dystopia was due in part to some undisclosed climate catastrophe.

If that isnt enough of a parallel to the dumpster fire that is 2020 America - early in the film you find out that Charlton Heston is investigating the mysterious death of a whistle blower
...just sayin'


Invest in a good cast iron stew pot and a few 50 pound sacks of beans and rice NOW before it is too late.

Last evening EQ made white rice for herself, I arrived late to a cold plate, so I improvised with a quick dijonnaise sauce, which is Mayo and dijon mustard mixed to taste. The point here is anything eaten hot is GTG cold too. Rice is a great medium for anything you have on hand. If the rice is too cold and becomes hard, it will eventually reach a chewable stage the more you naw on it.

French Gourmet For Soldiers
 
Stone Soup
Some Napoleonic Soldiers retreating to France come to a village, carrying nothing more than an empty cooking pot. Upon their arrival, the villagers are unwilling to share any of their food stores with the hungry travelers. Then the soldiers go to a stream and fill the pot with water, drop a large stone in it, and place it over a fire. One of the villagers becomes curious and asks what they are doing. The soldiers answer that they are making "stone soup", which tastes wonderful and which they would be delighted to share with the villager, although it still needs a little bit of garnish, which they are missing, to improve the flavor.

The villager, who anticipates enjoying a share of the soup, does not mind parting with a few carrots, so these are added to the soup. Another villager walks by, inquiring about the pot, and the soldiers again mention their stone soup which has not yet reached its full potential. The villager hands them a little bit of seasoning. More and more villagers walk by, each adding another ingredient. Finally, the stone (being inedible) is removed from the pot, and a delicious and nourishing pot of soup is enjoyed by soldiers and villagers alike. Although the soldiers have thus tricked the villagers into sharing their food with them, they have successfully transformed it into a tasty meal which they share with the donors.

For you Urban Outdoorsmen don't forget your bird feeder and pellet gun.

While the smaller birds are not worth the trouble I have tons of Morning Doves and Squirrels coming to the feeder.

Both would go well with rice or beans.

Bird Feeder
What a great resource idea.
Morning Dove, Bowtie Pasta, Reggiano

Bacon is a great additive to anything edible as are mushrooms, tomatoes (fresh/canned). We stocked up on different types of dried pasta with the idea as basic ingredient to build a meal around. Also, grab several dz. cans @ of Tuna, Salmon, Sardines.

Mushrooms are cheap; cooking 10# off and then reducing them to 2qt or a paste enhances storage space, and affords you the opportunity to upscale any of the 4 basic pantry items. We hold qt containers for up to a month as 32^F with no problem.

Hard Cheese keeps really well.

Spices are a great thing to have on hand. Kosher salt and pepper are a must have.
You should also think about having some goodies on hand, nuts, chocolate holds well in most cellars housed in a cookie tin. Brownie mixes that only require oil and water are also GTG.

Don't forget board games, cards, chess and checker sets, arts and craft, kitting, anything that will engage you and yours if a quarantine is declared.

I substitute EVOO for the mayo, add some fresh lemon juice along with a dash of redi wine vinegar. I also like to use cannellini beans.

That’s a winner !

The tuna packed in olive oil makes a great base - solid shelf life - great source of protein.

Agree, it adds flavor as well.
