I was stuck on a FOB in Afghanistan some years ago, and we'd been stuck on rat packs for weeks. The news comes over that we're getting some fresh meat in the next resup. We were so excited until the 'fresh meat' turned out to be half a NATO pallet of Spam. Then followed 4 weeks of eating nothing but spam cooked in different ways. I swear if anyone puts a can of this stuff in front of me again, I will insert it up their fundamental orrifice.
Don't use a knife to chisel ice. It's unnecessary labour. Use hard items such as stone pestle or hammer. I assure you it's much easier. Hammer and chisel works too, but hammer alone works better than knife.
My friend has a Twinkie from an LFO concert in 2000. It is now a small brick. She uses it as a paper weight. I'm not sure all Twinkies are created equal. I think Tallahassee was correct about this one.
Preppers take note. Didn't know that about brown rice, now the whole white rice thing makes a lot more sense. Always thought it was stupid people would eat a less nutritious version of a staple foodstuff. Disappointed about the pasta, that was always my favourite go to food in an emergency.I assumed it would last 20 years plus. Need to get stuck into thst pile I've got stacked in the pantry.Baked beans, what about baked beans? Hard tack and beans was always my go to food in a short term emergency. I'm assuming the tomato sauce would be enough to stave off scurvy, probably not recommended in an enclosed space though, like a bunker. So a long term diet of hard tack, vodka, and honey it is . Not so bad. I guess I'll die happy.
I do historical reenactment, and I was a chef, so I've made hardtack. Years ago I made some for an event, then the leftovers were forgotten in a bag that wasn't used anymore. It was found about a decade later, the hardtack was basically unchanged. It had the same consistency and tasted nearly the same.
And now for something completely different...
I'll have the Spam, Spam, Spam, hard tack, Spam, Spam, white rice, Spam, Spam, Twinkies, Spam and pemmican, with a side of hard coffee with instant milk and honey to taste. And a side of Spam!
