    Ok what are you main side dish for you main go to meal useing the food stowage program that you have ..

    Here is my main go to side for the meals

    Mac and Chesse

    White Rice

    Potatoes like mash and hash brown and sliced and diced

    Red beans

    Black beans

    Apple sauce

    corn yellow

    with those above dish i can mix and match my meal that i can make out of the stored long term food products..

    like mash potatoes and corn


    mac and chesse and apple sauce


    rice and red beans


    red beans with yellow corn and tomato powder and brown sugar and honey to make up a fake bbq bean side dish like bush beans


    Black and red beans with yellow corn and tomato powder and brown sugar to make up a little fake southwest style bean dish

    Most of the socalled main meat dish comes from TVP flavoring and long term meat items that stores well for the long term ..

    Since i'm single so my use of a full sized 28.oz sized can is going to last me about a week in length with two meals a day out of them and mixing them with TVP to stetch the meat ever farther in the long run ..

    Also i had my daughter and a couple of lady friend who cook with long term foods alot make me up a set of 5-x-7.sized meal cards they are protected in sealed plastic and have there own box on the counter to make up meal plan for the week ..

    the idea was to put the meal on the menu board for the week and move those 7 meals plans to the front and then work off from those and some of the meals ideas where to swap breakfast items for supper items here and there to change up the meal

    Plus two diff type of desserts and three loafs of bread for the week to make up sandwichs and other meals out of them ..

    Here is some of the food plan ideas i have useing the my side dish items for makeing up meals as it need for a two week time frame

    "Beans-n-taters" will get you a long way. Pinto beans is a meat substitute as is Mac n cheese. Rice keeps half the world from starving and is my mainstay along with wheat and corn. MREs-we have several months supply.

    If it doesn't run faster than me or dodge bullets, or get lucky, it is a food resource. Haven't met a tater yet that could dodge a shovel.
