It began so innocently

This Thanksgiving Boudicca, her husband and their three boys are spending several days with her mother (Hubba) and father (TGOO, The Great Omnipotent One).

Although they had plenty of food and water after Hurricane Ivan came through last year, when TGOO picked up ice from FEMA, needed or not he ended up with MREs in his vehicle's trunk.

Now, over a year later, Boudicca and the boys are trying the MREs. "Stay tuned." she blogged. "Hey, if the kids like them enough, we could end up taking some on our next camping trip."

You ever wonder what's actually in those boxes? Here's your chance to find out:

A New Culinary Experience
Two Thumbs Up for Cheese Tortellini
Since When did Pepto Bismal become Dessert?
Southern Gastroporn with a few MRE Shots...
Say It Isn't So- An MRE on Thanksgiving

I believe Bou mentioned they were staying through the weekend, so I don't think they're done sampling.

And Bou, a big thanks from me to you. Although I make sure I have plenty of canned goods on hand during hurricane season, trust me. I'm going to sock in twice as much next year.

Got them left overs ready yet... If I was to leave now, I think I'd be able to drive there in about 4-5 days... ;-)

I've had a lot of MRE's... they've really improved over the years...

LOL! Thank you!

We ended up leaving today, but my youngest was hell bent on having an MRE for lunch. I just couldn't do it. I suspect that my folks may bring a couple down with them at Christmas. I refuse to have MRE for Christmas dinner, however!

When I was a kid in Hawaii, the military staged a mock invasion on a beach near our house. After it was over, there wer piles of crap left, including a slew of K-rations.

A bunch of us kids took them home, and ate them. They tasted like shit. I still remember one thing inparticular:

Canned bread. It was a loaf of bread in a round tin can. I don't know how they did it, but it was the same size and shape of the can when you opened it. And i tasted like stale, tin-laced bread. About what you'd expect from.....canned bread.
I'll bet the MRE's are a vast improvement.
