Menus to get you through seven days without power

Day 1: Stir-fry. Use cooked and seasoned foods such as Carving Board chicken strips. In heavy-bottomed pan over camp stove, heat a small amount of oil. Add canned and drained water chestnuts, sweet corn and peas. When heated, add chicken. Add bottled teriyaki sauce or prepare a sauce from dry gravy mix. Serve with bread and salad from a pre-storm packaged mix.
