Ten Dinners
Prepping 101 Series: Food storage dinners

Get started prepping by assembling ten shelf-stable dinners for
your family. While you can enhance the meal with fresh foods or
long lasting foods from your refrigerator, all the dinners listed
below can sit in your prepper's pantry unrefrigerated. These are
hearty and nutritious meals.

Ten Shelf-stable Dinners for Preppers
Here are some ideas for ten shelf-stable dinners for preppers to
get you started:

Shelf Stable Dinner #1: Taco Dinner.
Gather shelf-stable corn tortillas, canned hamburger, salsa and
seasoning and you have the makings of a delicious shelf-stable
meal. The Garden of Eatin' Yellow Corn dinner kit includes 12
taco shells, sauce and seasoning. To enhance the dinner, you can
stock: canned olives, a box of Mexican or Spanish rice, and
whatever fresh foods you may have in the fridge or garden. Be
sure to
stock cheese and onions in your fridge.  Onions are best
stored in a root cellar, but they do well in the fridge. You can
wax your own cheddar cheese and it will keep aging to
perfection! Don't like crunchy tacos? Soft corn tortillas last for a
long time in the fridge!

  • See Yoder's canned meats. Yoder's cans taco meat! Just add
    your own cheese and taco shells. It's always good to have a
    block of cheese in the refrigerator and wrapped in its
    original wrapping, your cheese will last a long time. Another
    option for the cheese is freeze dried cheese, pictured top

  • The Augason Farms Fiesta bucket right has all the fixings of
    an authentic Mexican meal. Freeze dried and ready to go,
    you can make lunch and dinner or amazing appetizers. Using
    your culinary spin: your options are endless. Make chicken
    fajitas, vegetarian tacos, bean burritos, enchiladas,
    breakfast burritos, nachos and quesadillas.

Shelf Stable Dinner #2: Chicken Alfredo.
All you need is your favorite Alfredo pasta sauce in a jar or a dry
mix and
powdered milk, along with pasta and chicken chunks in a
can to make a tasty shelf-stable chicken Alfredo meal that's
loaded with protein. Be sure to have
freeze dried parsley on hand
(or grow some in a container garden). Serve with canned green
beans on the side,
freeze dried broccoli or your favorite veggies
from the garden.

Variations of a delicious Alfredo dinner include:
  • Crab Alfredo (canned crab meat)
  • Salmon Alfredo (canned Salmon)
  • Ham Alfredo (canned ham)
  • Carbonera (canned bacon)

Shelf Stable Dinner #3: Spaghetti with meat sauce.
Likely you have some marinara or spaghetti sauce in your
cupboards, add some
canned hamburger meat, Kraft Parmesan
cheese, again have the freeze dried parsley, and you're ready
with a classic meal. To enhance your shelf-stable spaghetti
dinner, add freeze dried carrots to your meat sauce.

Shelf Stable Dinner #4: Tortellini.
Dried tortellini is an excellent shelf-stable food for the prepper's
pantry and Barilla is an favorite brand (also comes in Spinach and
cheese). Transfer dried tortellin into a jar for an even longer
shelf life. Enjoy with your favorite marinara sauce, alfredo sauce,
or canned pasta sauce.

Shelf Stable Dinner #5: Chicken A La King.
Traditionally you could serve Swanson's Chicken A La King as  
gravy over toast, but you could also prepare it over rice. It's a
simple and inexpensive dinner and you get chunks of chicken and
vegetables in every bite!  This is one of those products especially
difficult to find locally and available on Amazon in bulk for such a
significant savings. Get a pack of 12 Chicken A La King cans for
as low as $16.87 on Prime.

Shelf Stable Dinner #9: Goldbaum's Wondermeals.
No time to shop or cook? Shelf stable chicken dinner or beef
stuffed cabbage in a box, pictured right, are always ready to eat!
We're talking a bone in chicken dinner!

Shelf Stable Dinner #10: Cheeseburger macaroni.
Combine canned ground beef and your favorite boxed macaroni
