Let's make the Rapture delicious!
Now, I know I don't really need to worry about these things--come the Rapture, I'm hardly likely to be counted among the saved--but just in case, I figured I should take a look at the suggested shopping list.
Corned beef. Herring. Cream of broccoli soup. Something called "Kraft Pasteurized Processed Cheeze-Spreat." And a twenty-ounce jar of horseradish.
This is what the faithful have to look forward to? Top Ramen, Vienna sausage and dried prunes? And these are the people who have been good?
Yeah, that's not gonna work for me. I understand the pantry needs to be stocked with long-lasting foods, but is there any reason they can't be interesting? Tasty? Decadent?
Like black truffle paste?
Piquillo peppers stuffed with tuna? Marinated miniature figs? Pozole?
Of course, not everything has to be exotic and gourmet. The Boy, when questioned, said he'd like a couple of cases of good red wine and a dozen boxes of Kraft Mac 'n' Cheese ...
So what would be your choice?
