US MRE Menu #8 - Meatballs in Marinara Sauce (5278)

Post by HurtTrotter » Mon Apr 02, 2018 10:46 am

Hello everyone, forgive me for my Google-English)))
Recently I decided to finish off the old MRE 2015 and show No. 8 Meatballs in Marinara Sauce is one of my favorite menus.
it is very good that this ration contains not only the main course but also the side dish - Potatoes Au Gratin, this dish always liked me.
and so we open
In general, I used two heaters)))
And so I kept warming up and unpacking
meatballs are very good, and with potatoes even tastier) I could not stop until everything was over
Cheese Spread as always on top, and is well compatible with Meat Snacks
vanilla pound cake despite its two-year age was soft and pleasant to the taste)))
In general, it seems to me that this is one of the best MRE menus, well, for me

I agree, this one is one of the best. I've always thought it tasted like spaghetti without the noodles. If you had some crackers laying around, you could crumple them up and add them. I'll have to try that next time.
If we don't study the mistakes of the future, we're bound to repeat them for the first time.

Love that main entree and all the other items except for the au gratin potatoes.... for some reason I just can't enjoy the taste.

I looked forward to this one the other day, as in the past it wasn't too bad. Unfortunately the meatballs were nearly inedible in the latest iteration I tried. Insp/Test 3-18 They were tough as an old shoe. Sad.
