    Now that it's cooler out I've been all over the kimchi again. One I'm eating out of now has green onions cabbage horseradish ginger chili peppers and radish. Made one that had strawberries and mango but the sweet flavours seem to disapeare. Only stuff that I have to carry all the time to make new batches is salt, one of those little sprayer bottles of braggs, a tiny food grater and a peanut butter jar.

    Boil in bag rice with the sprouts and kimchi... Been eating it for weeks not sick of it yet. Can even make the rice with hot water from a gas station without a stove

    My buddy actually makes pancakes substituting beer for milk and coconut oil for the eggs. My contribution is a lavender syrup. Basically if we have lavender we boil it and soak it and steep it like a tea then use that make a simple syrup with relatively equal parts sugar to lavender water. Before the simple syrup is done I toss the lavender back in and mix it up pretty well. Once the syrup is done the lavender can soak for awhile longer. Then strain it through a cheese cloth or coffee filter and pour it into a mason jar. Let it sit and cool in your bag. The lavender flavor gets stronger with age.
    Just kind of use it for anything. Coffee, a honey substitute for a peanut butter and honey sandwich. Or just anything that needs to be sweetened or lavendered.

    It's still stupidly easy to get ebt in washington. At one point when applying I didn't have all of the info on my last job (last official paycheck and last day I worked) and I still got my card filled two days later. Woopdeedo.

    Also, I always carry a bag of rice on me and I find that peanut butter and cheese not only taste pretty great you're also constipated for DAYS!! YEEEEAAAH.

    Was staying with a family member a while ago who had a shit ton of canned food saved up for disaster prep. It was almost all expired so I was told I could use any of it. The best thing I made was something I called The Macpocalypse Survival Dinner. It was a box of mac n cheese that I added a can of beans and a can of spicy green chilis to and it was awesome.

    sautee 1lb ground pork, 8oz mushrooms, 1-2 bell pepper, 1 onion, 2-4 carrots, a couple of jalopenos
    sometimes add in 16oz black beans or lentils
    salt, pepper, garlic, and some sort of tumeric, mustard, allsice, curry powder mix
    I have two giant cast iron pans on a double burner stove
    when the veggies are cooked, i dump on 8-16oz of cheese and throw the second pan on as a lid to trap heat and melt the cheese
    then i heat up tortillas or put it on sourdough bread
    of course this is enough food for like 5 people

    if i dont have refrigeration i can substitute potatoes for ground pork and skip the cheese and mushrooms

    Brekkie goes something like a museli or rolled oat mix with heaps of nuts and whatever fruit I've got and water or milk

    My lunch/dinners are usually of cans of tuna mixed with avocado + tomato chunks & crackers, or slapped on some bread

    Half box mushroom couscous added to Progresso chicken alfredo penne soup. Red pepper black pepper garlic powder. Reminds me of Thanksgiving leftover stuffing, gravy, and turkey. Maybe less than half.
