One of the possible benefits of that meal was that the food would last for several days without refrigeration and you would save:
- Time in not having to cook another meal,
- Money ( not to be spent) and
- You would also have easy access to food for a few days if possible.
Using your home:
- Have a meal together or
- Part of a meal, either desert in the middle of the day, or
- A snack together in the afternoon or
- A cup of tea at some time in the day!
