We’re one week into the challenge and I hope you’re getting a lot from it.  If you missed the previous challenges, you can catch up here:

Since it’s a weekend, today’s challenge will be a little more time-consuming.

Here’s today’s challenge!

I got up early to post today’s challenge so you’d have time to get it done. If you don’t have time. you can catch up on the other meals tomorrow.

If your pantry is well-stocked and truly ready for an emergency, this should be a breeze.

Today, make all 3 meals completely from shelf-stable foods.

Here are a few ideas for each meal.



  • Tuna and crackers
  • Pasta salad with canned chicken and Italian spices
  • Boxed macaroni and cheese made with powdered milk (I use Amy’s Organic)
  • Veggies from the garden or farmer’s market as a delicious platter of freshness (not shelf stable, but in season so it’s possible you’d have this in an emergency


  • A freeze-dried emergency meal from one of your buckets
  • Soup made with various canned goods
  • Homemade pizza with dough from scratch, canned sauce, and freeze-dried cheese.

For more shelf-stable recipe ideas, check out my cookbook, The Stockpile Cafe. All the recipes are made with non-perishable foods.

Let us know what you’re eating today!

Share your day’s menu in the comments and tell us how it was. Did you have the supplies you needed to get you through one tasty day? Were the kids on board with eating the food? Was everything tasty? And what changes will you make to your stockpile.

If you cannot do this today because you have other commitments, try it a different day, but please give this one a shot. It’s important.

Remember if you want to qualify for the free ebook, be sure to post your answers in the forum.
