Emergency Essentials

Author : teriann

At any moment you could be stranded at home with no access to a store.  That it is why I think it is important to have in your home a few basic food items that can take you through any emergency situation.

In my opinion these are: flour/rice, crackers, tinned items, bread and milk.  I think with these items items it is easy to prepare meals that will please everyone.  The truth is that there are some emergencies that we might not be given much advance warning, both man-made and natural.  Therefore, it is wise to have not only candles and batteries handy but also those items which will make life a bit easier until it is safe to venture to a store.

Which food items would you need if you are stranded at home for a while? Let me hear from you!
