Just in case

| life

We’ve been working on our 72-hour survival kits, and we decided to test the food in our kit. Time to find out if the instant meals and energy bars work for us. For extra measure, W- duct-taped the fridge and freezer closed.

So far, so good. For breakfast, we mixed milk from powder and combined it with granola. It was okay, although the cats wouldn’t touch the left-over milk. For lunch, we used the camp stove to heat up lamb curry, grilled chicken, and rice. We still haven’t made dinner, as the two meals and assorted snacks have kept us quite full.

It’s good to plan ahead. When you have your safety net in place, you don’t worry as much, and you have more fun.
