Nice. Glad they got rid of the Asian beef strips. That wasn't so good. The fired rice was pretty bad too.

Wasn't a big fan of the brisket. I had it on two different occasions from two different fresh cases and I just wasn't a fan.

Definitely want to get my hands on the new menus.

Thanks for that. Have already printed off pages 8-13 for future shopping reference.

It's dismaying that there is only one "breakfast" meal in the whole list. If they can do bread, they could come up with a waffle or pancake and a side of bacon strips or sausage. Granola, a poptart, and a packet of Tang. Geez, would that be so hard?

11,12,13 are so good in earlier versions!

But why did they bring back,

Menu #14 Vegetarian
Creamy Spinach Fettuccine (Egg Noodles, Spinach and Mushrooms in a Cream Sauce)

"Canned spinach with soggy noodles" :shock: :?

Why not
"beans and rice"
Or
"Veggi chilli"
Or
"Veggie burger"

That would be cool.
Cheers,

Totally agree on 11, 12 and 13. I found them surprisingly good. I will be staying away from 14 since; A, it doesn't sound good to me as you indicated and 2, I'm a kidney stone former and need to stay away from spinach. I guess that might fall into the TMI category though, sorry.

Nah. Everybody has some little health quirk. I have high potassium levels. The "bad" foods I'm supposed to avoid include bananas, avocados, oranges, beans, nuts, whole wheat bread, bran, lunchmeat, potatoes, dairy products, tomato, vegetable juices, melons, peas, all fast foods - and spinach.

A lot of those are foods people are told they should eat more of. And which I truly like. Unfortunately.

BTW, I had one of those spinach meals. It was tasty but left me belching garlic for hours.

Sorry to hear that Rocky. That sounds like a tough diet to avoid those very common foods. I do know that high potassium levels can be very dangerous. That is essentially the business dose of the lethal injection that they give to death penalty inmates.

I wonder what the demand is for a breakfast menu. Even in the first strike rations theelre really isn't a defined breakfast portion.

Oh and there's 2 breakfast menus if you count the maple pork patty and the hash brown menus.
