Beef stroganoff is really good, I also like quite a lot the seafood chowder, it's quite similar to a spanish dish I ate as a kid so it has a home feeling for me
Whoa. Finally tried a seafood chowder last night for first time. Added 13 ounces of water instead of recommended 16. I have to say that is now one of my favorite meals ever. It was full of clams. I have to admit I was skeptical of seafood turned into basically a bag of cereal, but I loved it and raved about it to some friends while I was eating it. I give it two thumbs up.
Just saw that they are discontinuing sea food chowder so if you dig it... better stock up!

100% its got to be Spicy Oriental Chicken w/ Rice - add some hot pepper flakes (maybe 2 packs) - not to much water and its hands down the best one in the case.

I got a question.

Are the mcw really worth it?
If I get some it would be a case. So £70 + 70 delivery.

For that cost I could get 24 brit rations.

Nope! I can attest that they are in my opinion not remotely as good as a UK ORP! Especially if you can find the UK Cold Climate ORP's. The trade ratio is still like 3 MCW's to one ORP.

Spaghetti has been my favorite in MCIs, MREs, RCWs, and MCWs.

I think it's the only entrée that's always been in the line-up(?)
