I didn't like the canned cheese just eating it right out of the can either, but when I melted it over a homemade pizza it was fine. I think it's better when combined with other ingredients.I have purchased and tried the red feather brand canned butter and it was good. The Yoder canned bacon was also nice. I was not so entirely thrilled with the canned cheese it was very similar to processed cheese but it will come in handy when I cannot get anything else.
If you can't get those tall cans of Hunt's spaghetti sauce, you could buy cans of plain tomato sauce and canned tomatoes, plus some packets of spaghetti seasoning. I just mentioned it because you had so many noodles and it didn't look like there was anything to go on them.we looked at sauce but Aldis only had bottles - I want cans
tonight we bought 10 tubes of tooth paste (colgate) at the dollar store for $1 a piece

Also, agree with the comment about not using milk jugs. I've also read that you can't really get milk or juice containers clean enough to store water. Stick with soda containers. And check your water jugs from time to time -- I've had them leak.
Used milk jugs are a bad choice for two reasons. First of all, there's no way to clean the milk residue out of the pores of the plastic. In time, this gives bacteria an environment to grow in. Secondly, the plastic that milk jugs (and 1 gallon jugs of water from the store) are made of breaks down and begins to leak. We've had a lot of complaints about that here.I have not done much study on water, but what we have been doing is...as we use milk, we fill the jug with water and stick it away. not sure if water ever goes BAD.
also we have a creek within walking distance and I have been looking at purifiers - suggestions anybody
I wouldn't pay the shipping for rice and beans. You can get them close to home and they're easy to store. I bought dehydrated stew vegetables, potatoes, and eggs from EE -- things it would be harder for me to acquire or make.I want to get some5 gal pails of prepacked beans and rice through Emergency Essitials..but as I stand..Ive good a good supply of canned goods and keeping them rotated keeps the exp dates a couple to a few yrs down the road...Amazon has the 275 meals in a 5 gal pail ..I got two of those so far..havent opened them to try any..but they"supposedly" have a 10-20 yr life and for roughly 225.00 I dont have any major investment in them of they arent what they advertise.
