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
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!
