For all the Why’s and Wherefore’s of Survival Saturday, please visit the Intro Post. Thanks!
Last time I did a SS post was back in March with Attack of the Ninjabread Men. Which means it has been 2/3’s of a year. I’m a bit out of practice, so I wanted something fun, easy and still foody. Thank goodness for Krusteaz! This was so easy. All I needed was the mix, 1 stick of butter and 1 egg. To bring this into survival terms, even if technology craps the bed, the plastic the mix is stored in will last for decades and then all you’ll need is a cow and a chicken and voila, you are set!
This time I learned something from my past experience with Gingerbread. Melted butter and Softened butter are NOT the same thing. So I just let this sit out overnight so it would be nice and soft.
Cracking an egg is much easier than cracking heads!
I put ALL the complicated ingredients into a mixing bowl in the perfect proportions.
Then I hand kneaded the bejabs out of it!
By the time I was done, it was putty in my hand!
Then it was time to divide and conquer.
Finally, I brought them altogether for a family reunion.
The final step was to flatten them on a cookie sheet and cook them. But obviously, a true Chef never cooks and tells!
And that was a good re-introduction to Survival Saturday. Whetted the appetite, as it were. Next month I’ll have a “real” Survival Saturday with another of the long term storage food things. Please look forward to it!
