    Absolutely. Everything gets cooked in bacon fat. We saute the vegetables in it, fry eggs in it... I'm getting hungry thinking about it.

    We've been here over 20 years, but the previous owner told us he would keep a ladle down at the small creek and drink from it all the time. He did say it was very good tasting water for whatever it's worth, LOL.

    McDonalds hambergers are good for long term storage. Even after a couple of years , they're just the same as the day they were made.

    "just the same as the day they were made" is not saying very much. LOL

    Assuming that you have refrigeration. They are packed full of chemicals. They might last as long as an MRE.

    Guys, this is a myth.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Yes . I would question their nutritional value........but I seen a test done some years ago , where one was put on a plate , and left there , to see how long it would last , and after 18months it still looked like brand new .....everything. - the meat-the bun-the salad....all perfect. I suppose if you bought one , and threw it straight in the bin , you would be doing your digestive system a favor.

Shrimp and fresh fish are something most don't seem to stock up on, so we've managed to score both periodically through the week. According to what is getting wiped out, too many people live on Ramen noodles.

    To that vein, @Collateral Damage, a couple months ago we were thinking about getting a small freezer and putting it on our back patio.
    You can't even find them now in my area.

    Looks like more than a few people thought of the "fresh fish" solution and took advantage of it.

    Those noodles are just " not right ". Something odd about them.

    Give me Miso soup instead.
