WHAT - NO LUNCH!!? Darn Sally, I thought you'd be whippin up a buffet of Y2K goodies! Hey, I don't have your book yet, but I will look into getting it this weekend. In the meantime, got any quick hints on how to make my tuna talk? (seriously)

I just went to Amazon.com to see if your book is available and it has someone else's name on it! (J. Candy Arnold?) Is yours available in the stores like Barnes and Noble?

just for @......

1 small can tuna (drained)

1/3 cup chopped onion

1/3 cup chopped bell pepper

1/4 tsp salt....1/4 tsp black pepper

1 tablespoon flour

1 egg

mix together and shape into patties......fry in a small amount of oil over medium heat till heated thru and brown on each side

(experiment with whatever other spices you think are good.....ie lemon pepper, hot sauce, etc)

yum yum

You have to order Sally's Cookbook directly from her. You can do it online at her web site, http://www.y2kkitchen.com. I got more than a couple. One for me and many for friends and family.

Got 14 days of preps? If not, get started now. Click here.

Thanks Stan, Sally musta fell asleep I guess bein way over yonder in Virginia where it is past midnite. Her website has a lot of free recipes but since I don't feel like printin all of em I'll probably get the book anyway. 14 days of preps? Yeah, no problem! I've been preppin for over a year now and at this point it's just a matter of finding the unusual things I didn't think of that might come in handy. I bet were going to be finding out that some things we never thought of could be very valuable because other people won't have thought of it either!

I've been lucky enough to eat Sally's cooking on two occassions: both times the dishes were based on recipes out of her cook book and they were quite good.

You're right about forgetting about things that might be scarce next year. For example: the other day, I was looking for an elastic hair band (I gots long hair) and couldn't find anything but my girlfriend's pink ones. Well, I'll be damned if I go out to a business meeting with a pink hair tie (or anywhere else for that matter), so I picked up a little more than a year's worth of the black ones at the grocery store. I may go back and get some more as they might be a good barter item.

Sincerely, Stan Faryna
