Merde...

Post by housil » Thu Mar 01, 2012 3:06 pm

Today I want to have a special dinner so I decided for a French cuisine

Image
Smoked sausages w/ potatos and canned cheese

BUT

the 2005 cheese
Image
was close to explode :shock:

A little scared I opend the entree after I heard some "bubbling" noises from inside
Image
and a "sour" smell came out. The can wasn´t swollen and I don´t know if that dish should smell like this, but I didn´t dare to eat it after 7 years.

I tried an German EPa
Image
Italian style noodles dish

This is nothing special but in this new containers
Image
I have no experience > 10 years of shelf life as they were introduced in 1999/2000

After cut open the top lid
Image
no suspicious smell

Let´s see if I´m still fine tomorrow
Image
after I had this :wink:

The last one I had it Friday, you should told me, I'd kept for you. In the next parcel I'll hope to send you one, at least. They are very good. My top 5 rations:

1. Norway - best chow I've tried, the only drwback, they need hot water.
2-3 - equal - EPas and RCIRs
4. British
5. Dutch

Really, it´s "French cuisine".
They don´t have continetal breakfast, just a salad bowl of (milk)coffee w/ crackers :mrgreen:
Image
and every ration has a tommy cocker inside

e.g.
Image
Paella

Image

Image
Porc w/ rice and pineapple
*Really* delicious!
