>German bread.

Sorry preppers, but that NOT German. It's a Danish national bread that EVERYONE, I mean EVERYONE eats for lunch as open faced sandwiches.

I use my lovely sourdough and bake one of these 3-4 times a week now.

>Fresh meat

The online meat retailers are still delivering meat. Sales have been booming for them. If you need recommendations for some of them let me know. The prices are 2-3x what you would spend in the grocery store but there is a definite difference in quality.

My freezer is packed full of meat right now. It usually is but I bought a couple extra pork butts, briskets, and chickens the last time I braved Costco. Need to get a few more pounds of ground beef at some point.

>mayo makes a good, tasty substitute for oil & eggs in just about anything

Great substitute for butter on grilled cheese. It is great to coat fish with before cooking too.

>fish

I live on a river once famed for bass, perch, brim, & blue gills.  I feed all food scraps to the waist-deep creek that runs along the side boundary.  The minute the bait hits the water in that creek, something strikes it. 

That said, when you hear that Louise is eating fish, you'll know it's the End Times.

I happen to have one, but that was a fluke.

>You Can Take Your Temperature With a Meat Thermometer

I have about a dozen around the house. ThermoWorks is pretty much the best in class. Reasonable price, very high quality, great service, accurate, and precise. They even make some sweet 4 channel models so you can have contests with the family to see who can register the highest.

German bread is in.  Good until 1/1/2021. 

I also got a case of Raman Noodle soup (reduced sodium) for soup and sandwich suppers.

>fresh meat

We found out that one of our mega-farms runs a meat & produce market (conveniently located in their equipment yard).  We brushed up our Good Ol' Boy credentials and called and asked if we could give them an order and and our credit card number and have it ready to go.  Done!

We scored chicken, steaks, pork chops, link sausage, minced bbq.  Didn't even have to go in the store.

Good job RC.  I can't imagine you without a freezer big enough to store meat for months.

With all the kids grown, we only have a side-by-side reefer/freezer and a small, half-size chest freezer.  But bulk meat purchases tend to be wrapped so as to not waste much room and we can pack a lot in there.  Prior to this, I had about a month's supply of meat  ...but we've been in isolation for almost 3 weeks now, so it was get low-ish.  We should be good for another month now, but we'll ping this grocer in about 2 weeks just to keep the channel open.

>month's supply of meat

I did an inventory of my freezer. Right now I have 2 briskets, 4 pork butts, 2 whole chickens, chicken wings, pork chops, a whole pork loin, a chuck roast, 2 tri tips, 2 bavettes, 2 skirt steaks, 10 lbs ground beef, 4 NY strips, 2 ribeyes, a couple packs of tenderloin pieces, a few sausages and hot dogs, 20 pounds of homemade bacon, 3 racks of ribs, 2 teres major, and a couple packs of short ribs. Should last for a while. But I am always a sucker for a deal or a good looking piece of meat. One of my favorite online merchants has a great deal on 10 ribeyes so I might add those to the mix.

BTW, when this is all over you are all invited over for a barbecue.
