    Well, if you look at it, hardtack was the original MRE.
    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    I is before E except after C, then it's chaos man, mass chaos! Letters coming together into words, but then you go English and they put U's in places that just shouldn't go there... AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

    My sanity left town along time ago and didn't leave a forwarding address. It's not missed.

    Not quite; not enough calories or nutrients, and while you technically CAN eat it as is, that's an unwise idea unless you like broken teeth. Usually it would be soaked with something to make a porridge or mush, with other stuff added in it to make it more palatable if you were lucky. And that was after the cunning sort of soldier got the worms/weevils out of it by letting them float to the top of the liquid he had soaked it in.

    Dark the stars and dark the moon
    Hush the night and the morning loon
    Tell the horses and beat on your drum
    Gone their master, gone their son.

    Dark the oceans, dark the sky
    Hush the whales and the ocean tide
    Tell the salt marsh and beat on your drum
    Gone their master, gone their son.

    Yetch. Now I understand why they were allowed so much booze to drink. The liquor was probably the healthiest thing they put in their mouths.

    No shit? Really? Was that why I was giving you the "No shit? Really?" eyeblinks last post?

    Hardtack, or literally biscuits*, were the long term food storage method for long distance travel back in the day... so sailors and soldiers got to 'enjoy' them. As did settlers in the American west.



    * In the old french, "twice baked". They'd bake bread†, and then bake it again to ruin it make it last. Triscuit, is then, "thrice baked".
    † Usually dense, unleavened bread.

    I thought about that, too, but I'm sure the squick factor might be a bit high to most. The hardtack in the Civil War had the nickname of "worm castles" or something like that because it was often terribly infested.

    This piece I've got is heavy and solid enough, I'm considering using hardtack as a ranged weapon. Hardtack throwing-stars.

    If you were starving, you wouldn't care much I think.

    Well, today is St. Patrick's day. So I made corned beef and cabbage. Only instead of cooking the cabbage, I made coleslaw (because I don't care much for cooked cabbage).

    It was tasty if not strictly traditional.

    It's gonna be good I think.

    I ran into the grocery store today to get a money order and was pleasantly shocked to find, staring me in the face as I walked in....they have Game of Thrones Oreos!!!

    Of course I bought some. Still far too much filling for my taste, but the House designs are actually pretty cool.

    I've rarely been happier to fall victim to a clever marketing ploy.

    I found a new sauce/marinade at HEB. It's Pineapple, Coconut, Mango Tequila sauce. I'm going to slow cook a pork tenderloin tomorrow in it. It sounds good.

    Lol. I love that show. Their reactions to bad food is so funny. Because you know you'd react the same way!
