I actually bought a couple boxes myself. Not terrible, but I do need to add some of my own chili oil.

eta- Im not a big fan of stuff that comes in plastic that you heat up in the microwave, but this was really good. Snapdragon brand at Costco.
What I found at … is a series that tests and vets intriguing store-bought foodie finds. It’s the wide-angle parallel to KaSnack attack!, our series reviewing made-in-Hawaii snacks. What: Snapdragon Vietnamese Pho Where: Dry goods/instant foods aisle at all Oahu Costco stores Cost: $7.89 for a...www.frolichawaii.com
I copied the list from the "24 Hour Pandemic Prep List" that was posted by @Duxprep and sent it to friends and family hoping they might try to help themselves. Most thought I was kidding, others thought I was crazy.Just to chime in on trying to suggest to others that they buy stuff they will use/eat anyway. My inlaws are in the eye rolling category and go to the store pretty much every day to buy for one or two meals. I have enough stored for my house for a couple of months. My wife has been very supportive of my augmenting our stores. Yesterday she said "but we couldn't let my family starve". Well, that adds about seven more people.
I wasn't sure how to handle it. So, today I ordered a couple of books from Amazon and had them drop shipped to their respective houses.

Through an odd quirk of fate, I know a guy that is from a place with different medical standards and had a huge tooth cavity that became infected. No insurance, of course. So we came by some leftover keflex from someplace and he spent a week knocking down the infection, got him good and drunk, boiled the pliers and yarded that effer right out. Without killing the infection first it would have been REALLY painful. He sorta whistles now, when he talks, but no more pain!Curious how people self diagnose when using antibiotics. How do people know exactly what theyre suffering from and what type of antibiotic to use? My understanding is there is no one size fits all that cures every type of infection.
TS will get more I'm sure.You must have got the last of the Wolf Gold
And both will be breaking your door down when the time comes that they need something to survive.
Thats good.....but nothing beats the place in Keene....Pho Keene Great........I admittedly called once before they opened in am just to hear the message on the machine......I actually bought a couple boxes myself. Not terrible, but I do need to add some of my own chili oil.
I have a longstanding joke with my customers about giving up the IT nonsense and getting a hot dog cart. Maybe I should rethink that, and make it a food truck serving Vietnamese soup - people seem to dig it. And mine would be much, much better - so much, that people would be willing to stand in line for it.
I'll call it:
Calcium Hypochlorite stores well in mason jars in my experience. No out-gassing issues this way. It is much more convenient/practical to store than liquid bleach if you take the fumes out of the equation.What about liquid chlorine in 1 gallon bottles or 5 (6?) gallon blue jugs?
Just use less vacuum.Getting another batch of beef jerky ready tonight to make in the AM, before weight is 6lbs, should be around 3lbs when done more or less.
I have Vac sealed the bags in the past but I find the beef has sharp edges that over time shuffling them around can poke holes, should I get thicker bags ( if thats a thing ), double bag or my other thought was a large mason jar. Put the beef strips in up and down, then seal them up.
That coating can be unreliable, especially in the presence of an oxidizer like chlorine. All it would take is one tiny pin hole in the coating to allow the chlorine access to the metal and the corrosion will creep under the coating, eventually disintegrating the thin metal lid.I Ball brand jars. They have metal lids, but the inside has some sort of coating. They have been holding up well so far.
