Pea-Licious Gorp
    This savory gorp makes a snack by the half cup  or a satisfying meal when you eat a cup or two of it with a beverage.

4 cups string cheese, snipped into small bites pieces
1 tablespoon of dry ranch salad dressing mix
2 cups Wasabi peas
4 cups of bite-size whole grain crackers (e.g. Wheat Thins)
4 cups sweet potato chips
2 cups whole, roasted, unsalted almonds

    Snip cheese into a 4-cup measure. When you have enough, dump it into a clean bag with the ranch mix and shake gently to mix. Add remaining ingredients, shake gently to mix and package the gorp by the cup or half cup.  Makes 16 cups. Keep cool and dry for up to a week.

Never get caught without food in the house, the camper, the boat or your cabin at the lake. Supermarket foods stock the pantry with real meals for real people. No high-priced prepper foods required. See the Survival Food Handbook.
