Denise, I think she was asking for food advice not relationship advice.

Re: Meat & Potato Man

Hey this is a no brainer. Stock up on all varieties of canned meat products and instant potatoes (you will be surprised at the varieties available) and then tell him you will cook whatever fresh meat he brings on board. After all, he will be the Alpha Male on this voyage. If he doesn't like it, then read him Lysistrata.
While you are at it, also stock up on foods you like and see who eats what.
I agree with Denise, this sounds very one sided. Maybe you should eat "boat style" for the next month and see what goes.

I'm doubly impressed: not only a reference to Lysistrata, but advocated by a MAN! I usually have people scrambling for Google whenever I mention this approach.

Oh come on, we're guys, that doesn't mean we're stupid. Some of us have actually read a book or two, you know, in between demanding sammiches and wondering why you are asking yet again whether that dress makes you look fat, and then trying to figure out how to correctly answer the question while balancing our need for indoor living while also providing the one thing you always say you want in a relationship: honesty.

In other words, i'll see your Lysistrata and raise you an "Art of War."

Pat Benatar was right. Love is a battlefield.

You have to admit that Lysistrata isn't on everyone's (man or female) To Be Read list. As to the man comment, come on. How many men do you know would suggest threatening to withhold as a negotiating tactic? Wouldn't that get them kicked out of the Man Club, or, at least thrown into the penalty box?

Re: Meat & Potato Man

Many of us withhold- you just confuse "withholding" with "stopped begging." See, we're sneaky like that.

Spam was found in the pyramids for the pharaohs making the last journey. The thing the archeologists think as a onk is really the artist's conception of the key to the spam can!

Jus sayin...

Re: Meat & Potato Man

I've been canning meat for 3 decades, no problem. Fill the jar a half inch down from the top. If it is venison, add enough apple juice to fill the air voids. Screw the lid on finger tight, too tight and you break the jar. Put them in your canner, put the lid and a 17 lb rocker on and cook it, with the rocker rocking for 1 1/2 hours. Let cool naturally let the lids pop in, then remove the jars and do another load.
When using them, when you pop the lid, listen for the vacuum breaking. No Vacuum? Dump it overboard. If there is a vacuum , cook it for minimum 15 minutes in an open fry pan. That neutralizes any botulism. If it had food poisoning , there would be no vacuum, as that produces gas.
Vacuum plus 15 minutes cooking covers both possibilities, Perfectly safe.
Any broken jars usually means you screwed the lid on too tight. Throw away the contents of any broken jars, as they may have glass bits in it.
I remember going hunting to stock up for a trip south. Walked over the hill, and there, 20 yards away, was a huge buck. Bang! " Congratulations Bucky! You have just won a free trip to the South Pacific!"

so true I am laughing my ass off


I would suggest as others have if you do some canning be very careful. Botulism is an anerobe and is the main thing to watch out for with improper canning methods and swollen cans

He may have to alter his diet some I agree. While all the good samatritans who beleive that less meat is better for youand want to live on nuts, seeds and grains rememebr your body needs to have a certain amount of proteins also so beans , and poissibly soy products should nutritionally be part of the mix. In addition I dont think he has to give up his fondness for meat. NOKr do I think it is wise to alter his diet drastically before the voyage...just temper it somewhat

I would suggest you buy dehydrated meats, jerky etc and learn to make recipes which allow you to rehydrate them. You may not be eating meats in sold roast or steak form, but they will be easier to store.

Excellant tip
