Go find a fresh road kill.
Cut off about 2 lbs. of what looks good that no one will miss, and grind or chop it up small. While you’re at it, get about 2 cups of the white maggots off that kill.
Don’t muck about: someone sees you, you might get dead.
Send your scroungers out to get an onion and some tomatoes. See if they can come up with some mushrooms that won’t kill you. A little COOKING OIL helps. You got an insider in a FEMA camp? No?
Brown the meat in a pan, and boil up the maggots, onion, oil, some SALT and some PEPPER and maybe some OREGANO in a pot of water, stirring all. When it’s going good, dump in the chopped/sliced mushrooms. When those ingredients are ‘chewy’ to taste, drain the water. After a bit dump in the browned meat and its drippings/fat (?) and then again later, the chopped up tomatoes. Keep it cooking gently for another while.
Should feed six or eight.
Now you finest-kind pukka-sahibs sit back and tell me you wouldn’t eat it IF…….and that you CAN come up with field recipe substitutes that you CAN prepare over a covert fire like on that smokeless twig-fired Rocket Stove in your kit and that of course, your ‘preps’ have SEASONINGS included alongside the ammo??
Go figger? You CAN cook extempoaneously, right?
A fella on his own without an organized group and base set-up better be BOTH and skilled at it. Being good at riflery you can’t do much, hungry. Being a cook, you better be able to defend the camp. Then there’s the medical types, whom I’d advise to be skilled in ALL THREE.
The list can grow. Do NOT ‘specialize’, cuz knowing more and more about less and less will not help you in the coming festivities.
