The Joy of Cooking on a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

1cookz2Some days I love cooking, but what about cooking on a terrible, horrible, no good, really bad day? I still want what I cook to be delicious and healthy, but how could I do that, say, during a zombie apocalypse? I don’t want myself and any loved ones who had managed to survive to simply subsist on self-contained, shelf-stable foods. We might be prey, but that doesn’t mean we’re stuck eating MREs (Meal Ready to Eat). Think fresh and available. What could be tastier than cricket, kelp and mushroom bourguignon?1cookz6

 After reading The Art of Eating Through the Zombie Apocalypse: A Cookbook & Culinary Survival Guide by Lauren Wilson, illustrated by Kristian Bauthus (Benbella Books) you’ll be thinking you should get a head start on this new way of cooking. While I know this book was meant to be tongue-in-cheek (I think that may also be a recipe), it could be a great book to have on hand, just in case. Enjoy this detailed, funny, and practical cookbook as you re-watch or catch up on The Walking Dead to be ready for its return on Sunday October 12th, which coincidentally, is the Canadian Thanksgiving…turkey and zombies, this completely changes the phrase, surviving the holidays.

If nature turns against you, turn that frown upside down – think of it as a fresh start, going back to basics.1cookz4World crumbling around you during a zombie or other apocalypse?
Doesn’t mean you can’t make a wonderful apple crumble in your ammo can oven!

Just because the living dead can’t think of anything but eating human flesh doesn’t mean you have to give up being a foodie.



Very me

  1. Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
    For 8 years in my 20’s I cooked on a slightly larger scale – 200 meals + in a busy tourist pub on the Isle of Wight and then for 140 children and teachers in a boarding school..I learned to cook in bulk and even with just the two of us I still do… obviously not the same scale. There are days when I feel like spending a couple of hours cooking and days when I am either too busy or not into it… I always cook two days at a time and either we eat the next day or I freeze – there is always a couple weeks worth of quick dishes and blanched veggies.. So bring on the Zombies – I am prepared….


    1. lol So you’re ready for the zombies and cooking for survivors. Just as long as I’m not the meal, I’m ready too. 🙂
      Thanks so much for the reblog and sharing your story, I can’t imagine cooking for that many people… 🙂
      Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂

      1. Yes, it’s going pretty well. I went to ScreamsPark in Waxahachie, TX, which is quite a drive – then visited each haunted house and the graveyard but I skipped the clown maze. I discovered how I would react during a zombie apocalypse — I would hide behind my unfazed husband.


      2. More startling and spooky than scary. If I REALLY wanted to get scared I’d watch the news, or visit some of those mystically dark haunted houses.
