1 bag frozen chopped onions ($1)
1 bag frozen peas/carrots (1.50)
1lb bag of washed lentils ($1)
1 12oz bag of diced ham ($2.50)
1 tablespoon parsley (pennies)
1 tablespoon favored spice mix (pennies)
1 carton chicken stock (2.50)

less that 9 bucks before the rice.

all the above goes into a large crock pot for 6 hours on high and makes about 12 servings. serve with fresh rice. substitute any dry bean of your choice for lentils...

I will be making a venison chili with some ground venison/bacon blend I have in the freezer.

Probably a pot of lentils at some point.

Chicken tikka masala.

Split pea soup.

I have a bunch of fish and sausage in the freezer, so I will be firing up the grill.

And of course, pizza rolls.

Lasagna. Drain your meat well and don’t use too much sauce. Also you may want to put your ricotta through a cheese cloth. The goal is a lasagna that doesn’t run out when you cut it so you can cut into individual squares and freeze. I hate runny lasagna anyway and if I think it’s too dry I drizzle some olive oil on it which I love anyway.

brah, I just ordered Roman noodles, Vienna sausage and a couple of boxes of saltines from Walmart pickup. I used to eat like that right after I got out of school. It’s highly unlikely I’ll even have to eat it but it will be there through hurricane season too.

oh and five cases of Bubbly water. I can sustain. This is the way.

I figure you could exist off the land. I assume you are from a line of irish criminals like myself so I have zero doubt in your ability to scrounge lol

Meatballs I always do in bulk and freeze some. It’s easy to break a few out for quick spaghetti and you don’t lose much quality if you use them within a couple of months.



I had actually bought a huge bulk bag of meatballs from Costco about a month ago, before i ever heard the term coronavirus.. I’ve already gone through about half the bag, so i have plenty left in case of food shortages and/or cant leave the house.. i hope i dont have to resort to that though, because the problem , as with most food that i ever buy from Costco- is that the portions are so huge that by the time I finish whatever it is, i’m usually sick of it because it’s just too much, and then i never want to eat that particular product ever again.. i was actually about to throw the rest of the meatballs out before this virus came along, so i’m holding onto them for now... also have a bunch of trail mix and some string cheese if things get really bad.
