Also had a off brand pop tart, packet of insta...

Re: Chow Hall details (Menus/planning)?

When I was in (late 70s early 80s) and doing my time in the mess hall, there were recipes on cards.. and I think recipe cards were what they were called. As time went by and these were replaced with something else, one would think there would be a few sets for sale someone where. Some of the items I...

Re: Low sodium meals
