KirkS: Some people think SPAM is low-quality meat; those are the people who haven't eaten TREET: Spiced Luncheon Loaf :D Jan 8, 2018 21:54:23 GMT
firstfrog2013: ...or vienna sausage which is neither from Austria or sausage Jan 8, 2018 22:29:45 GMT
mikeclevenger: In some European countries, cooked and often smoked wiener sausages bought fresh from supermarkets, delicatessens and butcher shops may be called by a name (such as in German or French) which translates in English as "Vienna sausage." Jan 9, 2018 2:16:48 GMT
mikeclevenger: So, are any of these meats on any stamps in the world? Jan 9, 2018 2:18:07 GMT
Jerry B: I have heard that Hawaiians eat the most Spam than any other people on the planet. Personally, I had enough "mystery meat" in the military. First meal in Basic was powdered eggs and Spam ??? Jan 9, 2018 10:35:24 GMT *
firstfrog2013: Jerry that's better than a couple survival courses I took.The choice was remove the legs or leave 'em. Jan 9, 2018 13:37:37 GMT
smauggie: In the Boy Scouts we sometimes got served meals by the US Army. I fell in love with creamed chipped beef. Then again I have had it less than a dozen times. Jan 10, 2018 0:18:21 GMT
Jerry B: smauggie: Actually that wan't too bad. They served it in prep school and in the military, where it was called SOS (mixed company name). Much better than Spam. Jan 10, 2018 8:13:53 GMT
mikeclevenger: I spent 7 1/2 years in the US Marine Corps, and SOS was one of my favorites always, right behind midnite omelettes! When I went to boot camp in 1981, we still had the old "C" rats. I have never even had an MRE yet. C-rats were pretty good actually. Jan 10, 2018 10:10:06 GMT
firstfrog2013: MRE's are a new hikers staple.I also use summer sausage and those famous dried dollar store soups.An old tea kettle is now a basic of my gear. Jan 10, 2018 14:52:46 GMT
tomiseksj: My January 2018 American Philatelist arrived today; unfortunately, it was brutalized on its way to me. Numerous tears and creases. On a positive note, at least all of the pages are present. Jan 10, 2018 22:44:31 GMT
Jerry B: Mike: In basic training "bivouac" they gave us "C" Rats that must have been from WWI. When camping I used to get Freeze Dried stuff from Morsan's Tent Store in New Jersey. Some of those things were pretty tasty. Jan 11, 2018 8:43:31 GMT
mikeclevenger: Yeah Jerry, in 1981, some of our C rats were from the early 60's but most were from the late 60's, but they were still good. We had some guys that were terrified to eat them, me - I was just hungry! Jan 11, 2018 10:02:11 GMT
Beryllium Guy: Interesting, Mike (). I served on active duty in the USMC from 1981 until late 1985. I also remember the C-rats, officially MCI = Meal, Combat, Individual and later the transition to the MRE = Meal, Ready to Eat. Jan 11, 2018 11:58:25 GMT
falschung: "2018 American Philatelist arrived today" - nice $10m Zeutschel OS16000 book scanner they bought (page 56). The $20m deluxe HQ model is on my next xmas wish list. Pls take note. Jan 11, 2018 12:31:58 GMT
mikeclevenger: Beryllium Guy, I never had a single MRE the entire 7 1/2 years I was in. I was in the airwing at Cherry Point though, so I ate dinner at home every night. LOL. Jan 12, 2018 10:10:26 GMT *
Beryllium Guy: Well, Frog (), after reading one of your posts about making a pot of beef stew on a cold day, I decided to follow suit and put on a pot myself today in the slow-cooker. I also really like the great aroma in the house all day while it cooks! Jan 16, 2018 18:29:51 GMT
firstfrog2013: if you would like I can post Dad's recipe for his stew.I haven't figured out how to decrease the size so we always freeze at least half. Jan 16, 2018 23:22:19 GMT
Jerry B: Beef stew is good for a cold day, but Venison or Moose stew is just as good :D Jan 17, 2018 10:21:02 GMT
Beryllium Guy: Frog (), it would be great if you would post your Dad's stew recipe. I tried a new recipe yesterday and it was good, but I am looking to improve it, I think, so I would welcome another chance. Thanks, Frog! Jan 17, 2018 14:52:03 GMT
