In light of the US Govt dancing around the 'S' word
, help me build a small stockpile preferably with recipes or a cooking list
and any general advice about stockpiling...

Screw the 'buy an extra can of tuna and put it under the bed' nonsense - if I'm in for a dime, I'm in for a dollar. I've got some dry, cool space in my basement ready to go - but I have no idea as to how to build a stockpile.
I'll have to support myself, my wife, and a four year old.
Furthermore, I'd rather not have the situation where it's "Guess I'll have another handful of dry beans" if I ever have to rely upon it. I'd like to stockpile stuff that actually makes a simple meal, rather than a hand-to-mouth type of store.
I assume that these things have a shelf life and will need to be rotated out of the stockpile, replaced, and into the 'normal' flow at some point rather than be wasted.
Help? Before the
swine flu nukes rapture bird flu gets us all...
