Kurt Saxon's Classic 25 Cents A Day Meals

If you've never read this article, you don't know what you're missing.

Try this as an experiment one evening and see how cheaply you can eat at work. I did it once for about 8 weeks and I figure I saved $2000.00 I would have spent on lunch.

Imagine the same principles applied inside a shelter for food preparation and cooking as the last word in energy efficiency. I tried it during one of my R&D nights in Firehold Alpha and the most important thing I realized after discovering what an amazingly easy principle it was is that you need to have a really, really good way to exhaust the steam when you open your fireless cooker "crockpot." Otherwise it's the most incredible thing since sliced bread.

This has been my breakfast for the last 6 months. One point I'd make would be that Kurt is useless when it comes to just writing a simple recipe! I had to print out 3 or 4 pages and circle all the "recipe" bits before I had an idea of what to do.
Keep up the good work, Tex.
