The directions for the pre-packaged meals was exactly what I was looking for.  The step-by-step directions were a wonderful help to me. This book has helped me take my food storage to the next level.

I like this book. It sounds like a good plan for back up meals, camping and for any type of disaster. Good recipes too.
