a couple of years ago we had a member post somewhere around hurricane season about what i have come to call the "milk bread and egg syndrome" Now i went thru another 3 day power outage this march after a big storm, no big deal, i do have frozen food and a wood stove.
The funny thing that hits me is how much we or at least i should say I, rely on the dairy industry,
milk,eggs,creamer,yogurt,cheese,mayo,sourcream butter, just off the top of my head that i eat each and every day, now add bread, buns,ptas,tortillas, these two food groupings alone can put me into food discomfort quickly,
powdered substitues are not the best for the real thing and the taste is hard to get used to, the food industry has messed with "real " food so much we hardly reconize real food any more.
Don't beleive me? try drinking milk straight from a cow, heck you cannot even pruchase milk directly from a farmer anymore.
ah heck ,was just thinking and typing. i live on a farm and trying to produce my own food at times can be trying, especialy when it comes to milk,bread and eggs(ok well not so much eggs0 but my other two favs, chesse and sour cream
