    Good morning all,

    Per ...

    However, those folks can change LED bulbs and party on pier.

    Survival question of the day: What is an ingredient for rigotto ?

    I'm a consumer of almond butter. It is geometrically healthier than peanut butter. More expensive than peanut butter - peanuts are legumes and not loaded with vitamins and minerals like tree nuts - the tree nuts are excellent for prostrate maintenance a per my MD's guidance.

    California's problem is not the virus nor stockpiling neglect. It's a failed government in Sacramento.

    Oh they can make bread. Just not good bread. My first 6 or 7 times ended with flat, mushy in the middle hard crusted...well, bread, sort of.

    It just takes time. I made great bread once I stopped doing 5 other things and being on instagram while I made it.

    Same with eggs. Now I stand at the stove the whole time. Just calculating. And my eggs are the shit!

    Good morning Patience,

    Appreciate reading above post.

    Same here; food prep can be done. It just takes a little practice.

    As a fire safety rule, when using stove, coffee machine or other appliance, I always stay there entire time.

    Prag, I love cooking. I hope my mom lives forever, but I want her old cookbooks hahaha.

    Cooking just takes time and care, and society today (not saying its bad or good) has a lot of time distractions, and a lot to care about that is more external than internal.

    I do think anyone can make bread, if they would just take the time. Does anything smell better than fresh bread from the oven? Maybe a fresh pie?

    Hahaha. I had to look it up. Yeah, I guess my first few tries were more bannock than loaf.

    So for the S.H.T.F. situation that we now find ourselves and are sinking deeper into the stinky quagmire , does not show any sign of losing electricity or propane . However to be fully prepared I will suggest practicing cooking using local available and natural materials in your area . In my case that is wood . I haven't done it lately but have practiced making biscuits from flour on my wood cook stove . Bread would also be a learning curb for those that haven't tried baking it using natural available materials . This may be taking prepping a step farther than some think is necessary but it might even be fun .

    a sourdough starter can be made from warm water, a bit of flour and a few small chunks of bramble stem. It takes a little bit to get there but it does work.

    We have actually had some disruption in propane supply but that was more the protests on the railways before the pandemic than the pandemic itself - I think anyway.

    I had to have a little chuckle at this because my whole life right now is probably a step too far for most people. I do have a propane stove but most of my cooking is done on the wood stove, why not, as currently it has to be on most of the time to keep me warm anyway. I also cook outside on an open fire often. Even in winter as long as there isn't an actual blizzard going on lol. I find it fun.

    There has been a lot of discussion about people being unable to cook from raw plain ingredients to make a meal. Personally I find it hard to understand how they can't but I will take everyone's word for it. Pretty much everything we eat at home is made from scratch LOL it's been years since I had a premade frozen meal.

    Excellent post . A situation I experienced , when my large quantity of survival flour lost it's yeast but otherwise was edible I learned to save my yeast starter and keep making my own yeast , over and over entirely done for an expected S.H.T.F. situation and learning experience .
