Dunno if I should post this in "food" or here in "General".

So where are you tonight? Me, I'm sitting in what we call a "C-can". it's air conditioned and we've got great Wi-Fi, but that's about it. I'm sitting here 'enjoying' two "meals". Both of them come in a pouch, an MRE pouch. I just finished some "Chili and Macaroni", and I'm now working on some "Beef Enchilada in Sauce". Thank Gawd for a long spoon! I think I got better than some of the other guys. They were all griping about some kinda' "vegetable" something or other.

They call this place "north", but it sure as hell doesn't seem north to me! It's hotter than a two dollar pistol here! Triple digit temps, just 'stroke' hot!! We keep the C-can cold, feels like about -25F walking in here. It's great! At least we can sleep. Two people per "can"; roommate has been here longer than me...good guy. He snores, and he says I do too, but I don't believe him!! LOL! I could care less, at least its cool.

Outta here tomorrow (I hope). Back to the cows.

Best all!!

From "north" BFE!!

Metaphysically and Spiritually, I am somewhere between Orion and The Pleiades, with a visit to SiriusB for cocktails with my mentor, otherwise physically somewhere between a rock and a hard place

Back home from an outdoor concert with an excellent 3 piece blues/rock band called David Gerald. David is the bluesman with smoke coming off his guitar frets from his blazing finger tips. The drummer and bassist are no slouches either. Great stuff, 2nd show I've seen them play. You can checkout their dot com under the same name.

My house, in a comfortable chair, with a good cup of coffee and 4, make that 3 now, chocolate chip cookies. My dogs look like they are watching a tennis match, as my hand goes from plate to mouth.

OH...just had a guy bring over some "Cherry Blueberry Cobbler"! Man, is this GOOD!!!

BTW...I guess I should have mentioned we're somewhere on the African continent.

Just DIGGIN' this cobbler (even though it's probably expired)!

Package says "0246 V2 P 14:53", the wrapper says "AQF 02421B V2 13:11 10".

Gosh, I've got to admit...that was REALLY good!!! I really needed a sweet treat for dessert!!

CnC shop. Lots to do but very long programs. I have a solid connection and a 34" display. I work the overnights but I'm alone which is just fine for me!

I like MREs but the rice ones are gross. They always come out like a brick. Yuck.

Yeah, you always want to like that "Spanish Rice" one, but it sucks every time...no matter how much hot sauce you put in it!!

Then you need to drink about 7 liters of water later after eating it!

a reply to: Flyingclaydiski'm in a coffin smoking tobacco under my yard where there is weird tree... and waiting to bust out when my favorite person, reminds me to... so we can eat with our hands and spar once more... then run on some stones in the river together, after we clean up a million cigarette butts... under a bridge where my friends live.
MRE's are yummy and magical! you don't even have to cook them!
Actually in'm in hell suffering until my last breath.

How do you get it to not come out like a brick? Is that how it's supposed to be?

Dear Flyingclaydisk. Reading your post and most of them and wishing I could be in the mental space you occupy.

It's like a ruse, you lube it up with about a gallon of hot sauce and it seems pliable, but it's really just an altered state.

After you eat it, it goes back to brick form. Hence the 7 liters of water, but you don't pee for about 7 weeks afterwards.

Frankly, if you ever wanted to eat something which would keep you full for about 6 weeks, and not have to use the can (1 or 2)...that would be the stuff! I'm not sure what the nutritional value of that stuff is, but I'm sure fresh concrete at least has more water in it!!

That must be why some MREs have the gum in them. I heard not to chew the gum because it makes you get the runs.

I'm tucked up in my comfy home. Apparently, a rouge bit of lightning exploded something major just to the northwest of our property. Our ourdoor camera showed a big explosion and then the power disappeared. I'm feeling grateful for the generator.
Listening to my St. Louis Cardinals try to beat the Dodgers in the twelfth.
Ah, I just remembered that the a/c isn't hooked up to the generator...hope they get the power back on soon...the humidity is brutal.

Not sure about the gum, but chewing the matches seems to make for a nice aperitif.

...oh, and the boxes make awesome enchiladas too!

No...I said mental space. Seems you are in a good space in life and I would so love to be there.
