Good point.

Seriously, I shop for groceries two or three times a week. We eat a lot of fresh produce, and I tend to come up with meal ideas on the spur of the moment, and the limited storage aboard Whiskeyjack kind of necessitates it during the summer, and it helps that our local farmer's market is right around the corner from stately Jones manor to get us through the winter.

SWMBO and I brave Costco once every couple of months to stock up on the canned goods, and if we feel the need for a sixpack of pianos, or a blister packed flat of 4376 cans of shaving cream.

I figure, maximum, we keep about 6 days worth of non-perishable/ long-life food onboard... and most of that is stuff that we bought to try, hated, and are stuck with the other box/bag/packet/pouch/envelope of the two that we bought.
It ain't happy food, it is barely survival food.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
