BY #20: Repeat, but with additional variety

My BY for the day: Can of chicken Vienna sausages

If I were adding anything to go along with this, it would be: You know the various noodle/rice mixes that are available for about $1.00 that come in a variety of flavors, like parmesan, or alfredo? Some of them require milk, but some only require butter, and that is optional. I'm thinking that mixing in a can of Vienna sausages in with those would be great, if you had a heat source to cook the rice/noodles. And those mixes would be a great additon to your storage shelves if your emergeny didn't include loss of power, water, etc. Getting a few of those (or just some dried pasta with seasonings of your choice) could really add to your food options if you are snowed in, trucking gets interrupted, etc.

Also, hey, even though the cans are small, they are cost friendly at $.50/can at my nearest Wal-Mart. If they give me a good price, I don't mind a little free advertising. Anyone seen them for less anywhere else?

What to have with this? Why Pork n Beans of course! Put that over some rice.
Or you can get that Kraft Mac & Cheese that uses Velveeta (gag), then you don't have to add milk..
I still need to hit WM and pick up more viennas. Kids are requesting..
OR how about a jar of spaghetti sauce. That would be a simple meal if you added some pasta too.

TM Frugal Gourmet--I was thinking maybe mac and cheese, though the only thing I remember adding with that is Spam. The sausages would probably be a hit, we just haven't had them in the house and I'm trying to remember if my children have had them elsewhere--maybe as mini corndogs somewhere or something, so I'm sure they'll be a hit. Hadn't thought of adding them to spaghetti, and that would probably be popular as well. Thanks very much for your comment!
