Comment of the Day
Today Jason Bargas shared 10 tips for eating MREs, having become an expert on the subject after Katrina. Commenter Jim offered a suggestion of his own:
Sloppy Joe MRE + Jalapeno Cheddar "spread" (looks like yellow toothpaste coming out of the pouch) + yellow mustard on torta loaves or hamburger buns. Damn near as good as mess hall Sloppy Joes. I just can't figure out why there isn't a chipped-beef and cream gravy ("SOS") MRE entree.
Thanks, Jim. Have to say, though: We hope we never have to test this one out...
