05 Dec Army Breakfast
I faded a bit in yesterday’s heat. By the time I realize I,was lagging, it was too late. I had neglected to eat enough and the only remedy was to retreat to the cabin and lick my wounds.
This morning, I resolved to not let things get out of hand. Breakfast would not be the normal carefully metered 125 grams of muesli. No it was to be an Army breakfast.
We were fed this out of a filed kitchen all the time while on exercise. And we eat it by the pound. If it were possible to stuff it in the pockets of our combat gear, we would have done it. If it was good then, why not now?
You would not make this at home. The prime ingredient is the stuff that never makes it into a grocery cart. Specifically, Hereford Corned Beef although how it got that name is beyond me as there is neither corn nor, I suspect beef, in the can.
Making the stuff is simplicity itself: 1/3 can of the mystery meat, 2 eggs, 1/2 onion. Consider it emergency rations. You know, the stuff you’re supposed to have tucked away somewhere in case of a prolonged power outage, natural disaster, or zombie/alien invasion. The good before date on the cans I have on board is 12/2024.
And yes if I had made a pound of it, I would have eaten it all…
