For all the Why’s and Wherefore’s of Survival Saturday, please visit the Intro Post. Thanks!
This month we decided to try Legacy Stroganoff.
I think this had the biggest ingredients list so far. Thank goodness “natural flavors” made the cut though. Dehydrated survival food needs all the help it can get!
Things Needed & Directions:
6 cups water
Boil the water, whisk in the package and simmer for 15 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes then eat the best gourmet stroganoff you’ve ever tasted! /sarcasm
We went hardcore this month. We thought we’d try it just as “nature” intended, so there was no softening of the blow, nothing to fall back on, it was this or die! (Yes, before hand I went through and threw all our food off our 3rd story balcony so we couldn’t eat anything else. Honest! 😉 )
Tumeric. I could smell it from the get go. I’ve also eaten my fair share of Hamburger Helper stroganoff. This stuff looked worse than HH stroganoff, tasted worse than HH and even the texture of the noodles turned me off. I managed to eat the small bowl I doled out to myself but I couldn’t force myself to try any more.
Now Mrs Bookstooge on the other hand, she liked it. She liked the texture of the noodles and didn’t notice much taste of anything. She said the noodles were almost melt in your mouth and she grew up with noodles similar so it was good. She did say if she were to ever make this that she’d add some mushroom soup to give it the little something it was missing flavorwise. She voluntarily ate a second bowl with a slice of processed cheese and enjoyed it.
Not the worst survival food by any means and considering we had very differing opinions means others will too. I guess when the Apocalypse comes, I’ll let Mrs B eat all of this. I’m just such a gentleman, Ma’am.
