The Walking Dead are coming back! And unlike those helpless schlubs in Woodbury, Georgia, you won’t be caught unprepared for a zombie attack, and by that we mean the horror of surviving a dry Z-Day. Can you imagine?
We won’t let you down, grrrrls. Like W.C. Fields said, “Once I was forced to live for days on nothing but food and water.” Don’t let this travesty happen to you. Always carry a flask, note the locations of the nearest liquor stores, and commit these recipes to memory.
