WTH kind of dinner is that? Oh, and a really nice oatmeal cookie and some high energy orange drink which won't dissolve in water.

Now, individually the various parts are decent. The spaghetti is edible. The Mexican rice is actually pretty good. But who eats Mexican rice with spaghetti? But, it gets even better! While you're waiting for your stuff to heat up (in the middle of BFE) there's snacks to be had. Is there a cracker? NO...there's Italian bread sticks (which thoroughly suck IMO) AND grape jelly to put on them! Oh boy, Italian bread sticks and grape jelly! Now, if a fella was in a forward deployed military unit there would be plenty of opportunity to trade, but when you're just a few guys who flew out into the middle of nowhere and got issued pretty much the same thing the trading ops are zero. Thank Gawd someone stuck some hot sauce in their pack!!

The other meal was some kind of penne pasta with "veggie meat crumbles" (whatever the hell those are!). I didn't even look at the side dish in that one; Gawd only knows!

Anyway, on to the drink mix. So yeah, it's 'orange' and it's full of electrolytes (yay), but you're only supposed to use 12oz of water. Who drinks just a cup and a half of water? Not me. So the drink mix gets added to 32oz of water (yummy, diluted orange water). But wait, there's that grape jelly (which no human on Earth could eat on the Italian bread sticks). Squirt that bad boy in the orange water and, hmmmm, not too bad.

But, what to do with the penne pasta with "veggie meat crumbles". Man, I'm gonna be hungry tomorrow!!

Sigh! You'd think aviation would be easier!

I thought it said Spaghetti Western at first.

I like putting parmesan cheese over chili (must have tomatoes in it). If you dial it in just right it'll set off like parmesan over marinara (that alchemy thing). Then you can choose between angel hair pasta, garlic bread, or both. And there's cheddar & jalapenos!

Man, none of those things are options! It's "Spaghetti With Beef And Sauce" (SPG-12) and "Mexican Rice" (MEX-20). Your accompaniments are "Dustless Black Pepper" and "Iodized Salt" (or you could opt for the "Deep Rich Coffee" packet, or the "Non-Dairy Creamer"). Or I guess you could dump the sugar packet on there somewhere.

Are you talking about MRE’s? It doesn’t sound like it. Sounds like even an MRE would be a better option.

Keep reminding yourself how much you're getting paid. Doesn't make the food any better, but at least you can afford a good steak when ya get back.

Dude...Look, if you don't like my posts then the solution is real simple...don't read 'em! Don't click on them, and don't read them! Seems like about every thread I make anymore, you come along and post essentially the same nasty thing.

Are you a stalker? LOL! (not that I'm particularly concerned about it)

You know the old saying...if you don't have something good to say...put a sock in it!

Have a good Internet.

Yes, that's exactly what it was.

Whats worst the MREs which I never had or the old C- rations. The only thing I like in the old C-rations was the coffee and the hot chocolate mix.

When mixed together the coffee and hot chocolate mix made for a very stout drink. Especially when doubled up in the canteen cup.
