So for argument’s sake, let’s say you’re stranded on a desert island, or a deserted island. Your boat is proverbial toast, but you’ve managed to salvage all the solar cooking equipment and you have a solar collector so you can use said cooking equipment. Hey, it’s my fantasy, just go with it.
Let’s say you have a few indigenous food stuffs, such as coconuts, a couple tropical fruit trees, some edible green plants, maybe wild lilies, and whatever fish you can catch.
What foods would you save from the wreckage? What FIVE foods would you want until such time as you were rescued?
Here’s my list!
Cooking oil so I could cook FRENCH FRIES TO GO WITH THE KETCHUP.
Canned vegetarian baked beans.
That’s actually six, but whatever… it’s my fantasy.
You know our dog, Jake? Well we get all kinds of comments about how thin he is, like – “Wow, what is he? He looks like a skinny bear!” ”Uh, is he a German shepherd? Are they all that, uh, narrow?”
When that dog comes running toward you from a distance, man, he is a sight to behold. He runs like a big cat. You actually feel as if a cheetah is chasing you. And then he does what we call a fly by – he leaps into the air as he reaches you and just grazes your shoulder. It’s like he’s bringing down a wild animal but he knows he’d better not tackle you. We’ve decided that if he was part of a wolf pack – cuz the prey drive is strong with this one – the other wolves would use him to flush the prey and herd it into a trap. Jake won’t kill anything, he’s too sweet. Besides, he doesn’t eat anything. The other wolves would, like, all be eating and Jake would be like, “Uh, you guys got any Frosted Mini Wheats? Or maybe a box of Wheat Thins? I don’t eat raw meat. Think you could put a nice sear on that liver for me?”
I’ll have to take a video of him one of these days.
