Food Storage Meal Exchange

I had this idea the other day about trying to get a hand full of people to do a little Food Storage Meal Exchange.  Here are the rules:

1.   Come up with a recipe or modify a current favorite recipe using shelf stable ingredients.
2.   Buy all the ingredients in the recipe to make the appropriate number of meals for the number of people in  the group.  So if there are 5 of us in the exchange group, than you would need to buy 5 of each ingredient in the recipe.  If you need water in the recipe, try and include a bottle or 2 of water so that there in nothing left out. 
3.   Make a copy of the recipe with instructions on preparation and put it with the ingredients in a bag to give to each individual in the group. 
4.   Try to limit your recipes to $10 or under in supplies. 

Once a month we can get together and exchange our meals in a bag.  Just think, you will have 5 ready made meals at your disposal.  I would like to do this once a month if possible.  Let me know if this is something you are interested in doing.  I think it would be really fun.
