To be fair, given the time period, French food wasn't all that great.

You might not be able to view it on Facebook, but here's a video of the Swiss military in what looks like the 40s or 50s producing fondue, including military precision when training how to grate cheese!

I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation I have. I built a shrine in my room for the yellow one who died because sadly no one noticed because she died around 9/11. Wanna see it?

I can't tell the ranks of the people eating the fondue at the end. Would this be something for officers' parties, enlisted holiday chow, or just an ordinary garrison meal for the army?

Fondue is just dairy hot pot, utterly without flavor yet popular as a time-consuming background task for a night of talking and drinking

STOP BEING EVIL.


Fondue was basically an invention to salvage Switzerland's cheese industry after tyrannical mismanagement by the Swiss Cheese Union left them with a massive glut in the market for the only three varieties of cheeses they allowed. One of those triumphs of modern marketing.

This is the saltiest thing I've ever tasted, and I once ate a big heaping bowl of salt:



My grandmother used to make SOS for my grandfather probably every month or so, and I still enjoy it to this day, but I don't think I've ever had any cooked to the actual Army recipe using actual Army beef, chipped, dried, chopped, because 1.2 grams of salt for a whole 169 calories sounds loving insane. For your standard 2000cal/day diet that'd be over 14 grams of salt.

I do this for my family twice a month, or more. It's... less nutty than it sounds off the bat. We tend to use Buddig packaged beef, and the "beef" not corned beef. But ~all~ the salt for the recipe comes from that meat. Oh, and fresh milk.

The "cook for 5 minutes" step, is building a roux. But how the heck are you going to teach every goon with a spoon how to build a roux?

Then you put it over toast, which does a lot for cutting the saltiness.

That sounds so much better than creamy BS that is most of what I've seen. Is it sort of like sauerkraut?

He'll, I hate most anything with mayo in it, that stuff disgusts me.

There's "vinegar base" and "cream base" Coleslaw. The creamy stuff is what you'll find on sandwiches. Vinegar base is what you find at KFC, Popeye's, and Long John Silvers. It's closer to a pickle salad than over-chopped side salad. I've learned to ask before I order it as a side. The disappointment, and disgust of find mayo based coleslaw has left many plates of mine, still decorated with that ick.

If you're calling KFC vinegar based what term do you have left for the Salvadoran type slaws served at your better Pupusarias?

Other than 'delicious' of course.

Honestly, I don't know why the US military doesn't just completely cheap out and issue out cans of Crisco, bags of flour and oatmeal, salt, and water rations. And maybe a pack of cigarettes.

There were times when I would have preferred that versus eating MRE's.

Moist fried hardtack with rolled oats almost feels like meat when you eat it. The trick is to stop frying it in a pan when it kinda "feels" like a chunk of boneless chicken. Hell, add a (crushed) bouillon cube while mixing it all up, and it would probably fool a lot of people, at least until they were able to get some real food.

Mmmmm... soldier food for the poors.

edit: I usually go with a 50/50 ratio of wheat and oats, and enough water to mix it all together, but not enough to make porridge. And I suddenly feel really loving old. That being said, it's cool and hipster to eat mostly vegetarian food, right?

I had some more rum to get rid of so I made an impromptu Navy grog.



Roughly half-and-half rum and water with a good squeeze or two of lime juice. Itís stronger than original Navy grog (4:1 water to rum) and has a more distinctive sweetness while still being easy to drink.

My extended family used to plan get togethers around making chipped beef gravy. Not since my mother's parents died, though.
