Re: Best for tinned meat

I'm going to try a few ways of serving it and I would value serving suggestions. It all goes back to The Prepping Mantra. Store what you eat , eat what you store.I can't see the point of storing food you dislike. I didn't like it, but I was brought up eating a LOT worse, so it's no ordeal by way of...

ASDA is worth keeping an eye on because the very often have the large tins of Pek chopped pork on for £1 as a "loss leader", though it's been it's normal price of double that all the way through lockdown.

Re: Best for tinned meat

If you have one of Icelands new 'Food Warehouse' branches, they have some occasional good offers on larger tins of corned beef and similar. I also got John West Red Salmon there at what must have been a mis-priced £2.50. Indeed, canned fish can be a much better VFM for protein stores. B&Ms & Home Ba...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

Yes, bit suspicious that nowhere is the age demographic of positive tests being published. I agree that its probably spreading around the working age group at ptesent and will work its way out into the more vulnerable in probably a short period of time.

How ready are you?

I'm on a budget but don't mind paying in something is way above all the others, just rather not :/ I'm looking to charge up a couple of phones occasionally, a power bank and some rechargeable batteries.
