I have something to blog about! Thanks to Memzy, you get to hear about what we lived on while we were snowed in. I first would like to say that I think it was inspiration that I got a crazy idea the day before Thanksgiving to stock up BIG time on all our necesities , I only do this like 3 times a year and spend bucko bucks at Costco so I don't have to go again for several months. Leaving Costco the day before Thanksgiving, I was questioning my sanity but if I hadn't we would have been very hungry 'cause we pretty much lived off of what I bought that day. Inspiration!
Here's a list of staples:
Mac n Cheese..duh
spam...yup, you read that correctly, we actually have it in our food storage because a number of my family members love the stuff.
hot dogs...double duh
2 costco bag size of chicken nuggets...
case of soup and ginormous box of saltines
ginormous box of flavored oatmeal
costco size bag of pancake mix
2 large syrup containers
5 dozen eggs..yeah we eat a lot of eggs around here...not me but everyone else
crate o' yogurt
2 meat lasagna, they come in 2 packs and they are AWESOME!
canned veggies and fruit
ginormous costco size bag of burritos
spaghetti and spaghetti sauce
frozen biscuits from schwans because they ROCK
We also have quarter of a cow in our freezer, we go in once a year with our friends to buy a cow, pasture fed, hormone free.
Thankfully, I had just bought 2 ginormous size containers of peanut butter so I didn't have to worry once that we would run out...phew.
We had to go to the store twice for milk, caffeine and bread
Sadly, I only had a few days worth of Diet Pepsi and regular Pepsi so we had to tredge in the snow uphill both ways to get our fix but TOTALLY worth it, plus I also have a sucker...err I mean son who thought it would be cool to go until he did and then decided it wasn't that cool.
hmmm...I think that's it.
Sooo we pretty much ate exactly what we eat normally. I try to have 2 months worth of food that we normally eat along with our other long term food storage so at least my kids wouldn't starve if something worse would have happened. From now on, I'm gonna make sure we're better covered with Diet Pespi so there will be no risk of me going crazy from caffeine withdrawals 'cause that sucks.
