Cool- where do you post your reviews?

Had a TOTM a couple of weeks ago, the chicken and vegetables. Pretty good overall. Ate the loose one, have a case of TOTMs still in the box. First ration I have eaten in a very long time. Am thinking about shipping my son a case of TOTMs. They live in Santa Barbara, which had the fires and now digging out from the mudslide. They weren't affected but main highway into town still being dug out. Rations would cost less than $60 and UPS ground maybe $15.

Had a chili mac last night not sure of the year though it had the red tasters choice in it. I would consume more of them but my paycheck limits how many i can buy at the moment.

Will do! I'll probably have the first video up next week, and you all will be the first to see it! :)

Got my first review -- Menu 21, Lemon Tuna up and running.

Any and all feedback is much appreciated. I know this is pretty rough around the edges, so any advice about editing would be much appreciated.

I'll have more videos soon, every Monday (starting in February).

I only eat them when I do a review and of course snack on the leftovers for another few days.

More often than I care to admit. :D I'll open one a week, maybe two. I'm a smaller woman, though, so even if I'm really hungry, it's hard for me to eat a US military MRE in one go --- one MRE would be most of my food/calories for the day. When I open one I usually spend the rest of the week working through the components. Once it's gone I'll usually open another within a day or two, rinse and repeat.
