Scenario #2: Blackout and Riot

There is a wide-ranged blackout in your region due to what authorities say is caused by a well-orchestrated and simultaneous sabotage by terrorists/anarchists. There's no electric power, and you get the news through your battery-operated radio.
Aside from lootings happening downtown, cops are also battling with either anarchists and rioters. Thankfully you are prepped since you've obediently followed the advice of Red Cross. You've got your 2 weeks supply of pork and beans and canned beef stew, and water enough for your family.

What's the first thing you'll eat? Take us through your plan how you'll go about with your food supply.

Have 2 500 gallon LP tanks to cook and for heat. No power, fire up the wood stove for cooking and heat. Start with the food in the frig. Freezer with last a week or more with all the frozen milk jugs of water we have inside, in case the power goes out.
Generator WILL NOT be fired up just to save a little food. Don't want to draw unwanted attention to myself. Nothing says come over and rob/kill me like a generator roaring.
