Yesterday we had for lunch on duty:

We got two plates of a very delicious vegi dish, just had to add a dash of salt. Our biggest surpries was the perfect texture of the vegetables, not "slushy"

That stuff looks very good and filling. housil have you ever tried the Gorp from Mountain House? It is a combination of carob chips, nuts, raisins and a couple other things, sort of a glorified trail mix. Sorry to go off topic here, but a buddy of mine who worked for AT&T during the 1980s told me that they had Mountain House canned and pouched rations, including Gorp, at the underground "project office" http://coldwar-c4i.net that he worked at. Mountain House is a leading supplier here in the US for emergency bunkers and related facilities.

I have to say the vegetables look great in the powdered picture. Especially the green one. (Ad first I thought it was brocolli on my small screen) But I just have to say, the end result looks something that comes gushing out of an person with alcohol poisoning.. :lol:

Looking at the ingredients and the looks of them, I must agree that the food must be of decent quality, mostly resulting in a good taste aswell. Nice pictures.
Sure, someone may one day kill me with my own gun.
But they'll have to beat me to death with it because it's empty.
