Default 101 Days of Ramen. Alexander's Great Soups, Sauces and Stews.

So finding old cookbooks and recipes or teaching folks how to cook like grandma did might have some merit.

Or at least how to use stockpiled food in the best way, etc.

OR, asking someone like me, or better yet, an INTERVIEW.

Grandma was basic, but she lived on a farm, knew how to slaughter, butcher her livestock and grow the veggies. She did cook on a wood burning stove. That might be a lost art.

This might surprise some, but when I cooked for AMTRAK, on the Miami to NYC Silver Streak express, we cooked on wood burning stoves. Picked up wood along the way.

Wood is still cheap, and follow Glenn Osborn and learn how to get it for free. Once it has been "aged", then you can use it in your old Ben Franklin stove.

Cast Iron is the preference in cookware. Lasts forever.

What if you lose your stove? Electric goes out or gas is shut off?

I once had to feed 150 men on a submarine during a mission which required us to be silent for a week, and NO cooking of any kind. Hardest cooking job I had. Premade a lot of pasta, bread, and rice.

Now, every college kid knows of Ramen noodles, still around 15 cents a pack or less when bought in bulk.

But just the soup would get old fast, but I like to cook it, then pan FRY it, sort of like home fries, and it comes out not too bad.

My 101 Days of Ramen may be available soon.

You can add almost anything to it, especially if you have an iron stomach and are young. Fried pickle and hot pepper rings is one of my favs.


PS. I just lost a cousin this week, today is his funeral. His brother still lives on the farm where they grew up. I've written a lot about them over the years, we spent a lot of time on that farm. We hunted at a very young age, with the caveat, we had to field dress anything we killed for food, only rats were for sport shooting. Having this farm and rural background under my belt has bode me well over the years.

Today, I feed the squirrels at the park, what they don't know is I could be fattening them up, still know how to make a trap with dental floss. They could be this year's THANKSGIVING dinner.
