Tinned/Packet Food

According to a recent press item, it seems the queen likes to partake of the occasional Fray Bentos tinned pie during a flight.

Given the scare mongering re food shortages after Brexit, I find myself wondering if I should perhaps stock up on some tinned/packet groceries.

What, if any, store cupboard items can you suggest?

I have to admit I am partial to a fray Bentos steak and kidney pie.

Re: Tinned/Packet Food

Do you actually believe that about the Queen ?
Pies are not something I consume anyway so wouldn't be on my list ,pies are supposed to be so bad for us ?
You could buy packets of flour in and make your own steak pie ?

I'm not stockpiling anything at the moment ( apart from toilet rolls ) although I always have a supply of canned fish , and baked beans in .

I suppose if you eat pasta you could stockpile some ?

Whatever will those who rely on foodbanks do ?

Tinned meat pie ,yuk...no thank you and I won't be stockpiling anything.
Fresh is best and I never have any problem getting fresh seasonal food around here all year.
Pasta and bread, I make my own. Spices and rice come from Asia.

I have a problem at the moment, there are so many plums and damsons in my deep freeze I have little room for anything else and am going to have to eat some soon. They make a nice change from the local apples and pears in the winter.

Hi

I always have a stock of tinned and dried food in.

Nothing to do with Brexit at all.

Absolutely.
Why the panic anyway? Does the OP know something we don't?
