Bread stuff went first, then boxed goods were gone for a few weeks, like hamburger helper and that kinda stuff. Then it was meat to go with all that, but that was a week or 2 later lol, hoarding minds aren't the brightest out there huh? Last time i was at the store 2 weeks ago or so all the chips and cracker shelves were empty. Wonder what the hoarders are gonna go for next?

    Anyway to make these you take 2 cans of chili, pour them in a 9x13 baking pan, then take the can of crescent rolls and wrap each dog in one and put it on the chili, make sure you don't get the Grands rolls, they won't cook through. I like to make garlic butter and brush it on the rolls, then sprinkle italian season on top of that. Then bake at 350 for about 25 minutes, until the rolls are golden brown. Then plate and sprinkle shredded sharp cheddar on them. So yummy and easy to make.

    Oh and the chili can be fun for the boys during this quarantine, make sure you're in a different room though lol.

    It seems like the hoarders are going through phases here too!

    hi all! Fortunately when this started we can a lot of canned soup and canned meat. started buying lots of stretchers like quinoa,rice,noodles and beans to make the meat go further. Started buying from Nuts.com and BakerAuthority.com for flour and yeast-baking supply for bakeries and shipping can be a lot but you could split w/ several people. 50# of flour isnt as much as it seems when your baking bread.

    We have been getting some stuff off Amazon. We have Amazon prime so we don't pay extra for shipping if it is on prime.
