I found something new today.  Some may already be aware so bear with me.  There is a brand name of processed puree foods called Thick it.  Now I'm not one for processed food but in a pinch such as hurricane, ice storm, you get the picture...no electricity and a major flare...this product could prove useful for some.  Break out the canned heat and you're good to go. Thick it foods are pre-pureed foods manufactured by Precision Foods Inc. and are available at Walgreens or you can ask your local pharmacy to order it for you.  For nutritional info and product selection go to Thickit.com and the homepage of Precision Foods comes up.  Follow the Thick it brand icons for more info.  As always read the lables in their entirety.  I don't know how expensive these are, however, I will tell you to stay away from the Thick It product that just thickens foods.  Our pharmacy prices this product @ 17.09 for a coffee sized container, but if you read the label it's just corn starch & sugar.  Imagine! Having said that I still think the purees would be nice to have on hand when you just don't have the stamina to crank up the food processor.  Anyway...just thought I'd share.  Some of the puree flavors include beef stew, caramel flavored apple pie, fruit & berry,salsibury steak, cinnamon french toast, etc.  Sounds better than rice, rice, more rice, grits, cream of rice, cream of wheat and whatever other slop you have to eat when you can't force the solids!  We currently have some in stock in our pharmacy so I'll let you know.  The label doesn't read outstanding nutrition but if you can keep it in 'ya that's half the battle right!
