Yes, 20-30 BOXES of brownie mix - aka: Kurt's food storage!
The boy LOVES his brownies! (Actually it's the batter he loves the most.) He will drive 15-20 minutes away to buy ONLY brownie mix. He buys it by the case (10 per case) and the cases sit on top of our fridge (who has the cupboard space for that much brownie mix?) The store checkers will usually ask him if he is doing a bake sale and he replies "nope, it's all for me!" Crazy boy!
His "theory" (besides the fact that he loves brownies) is that in an emergency brownies will become the new "currency". When everyone else is tired of their wheat, beans, rice, etc., brownies will become a hot commodity. I have told him that he needs to have eggs, oil and a working oven to make the brownies but he says those are just minor details.
So why are we approaching panic mode? We are down to only 3 mixes left. Yes, I said 3. This is a serious crisis here people! I mean what would we do if we had an emergency today? How would we survive with only 3 mixes?
Hopefully the budget will soon once again support our brownie food storage and we can replenish our load. Spending $20-$30 on brownie mix just doesn't fit in the budget right now. Until then we will just have to make due with only 3 mixes. Man, this will be tough!
