Drinking and Cooking Without Running Water

Can you believe it?  I'm actually going to post on a topic that I said I would!

Drinking without running water:  follow these instructions and have water on hand to drink.  Have drinking water to last 2 weeks per person. 

A few thoughts on cooking without running water:  First, avoid cooking foods that require large amounts of water, such as dry pasta or beans.  Second, use the water in canned foods you are using, such as canned vegetables or meat.  Third, keep foods on hand that do not require water, and are not salty.  If all you eat is chips and crackers, you will be increasingly thirsty, and drinking more water than you should be.  Fourth, if you must cook pasta, use just enough water to cover it, and put it on the stove to boil after adding the pasta.  This takes a little longer to cook, but saves water and fuel. 

Do you have any other ideas on cooking without running water?
