I think I exhausted my 'tourism budget' for this trip. In the last few days, I've been to 3 museums plus the battleship. There's more stuff to see in the area but I don't think we'll be able to get to them. Certainly hit most the major highlights though.

Oh yeah... Many, many, many shins found themselves banged, wounded and even scared. I got into it with a knee knocker my first week on the boat. Had my head up my... hat and really nailed my left shin. Wore that mark for a couple weeks.

9 Recipes to make your MREs actually taste delicious
by Logan Nye, originally posted Linkhere.

Meals, Ready to Eat make field life significantly more comfortable for today’s troops than grandpa had it, but they’re still not exactly good. And, since there are only 24 recipes per year, even the good ones can get old fast. Luckily, Pvt. Snuffy has enough ingenuity to take MRE components and turn them into good food. Here are 9 of the best recipes we’ve found. (We’ve limited the recipes to those which can be made with only current MRE components.)

1. Tex-Mex stew


Jalapeño pepper jack beef patty (can substitute beef stew)
Cheese spread
Hot sauce
Toasted corn kernels or crackers (optional)


Cut patty into small squares and add cheese. Add 3-4 oz. of water (reduce water if using beef stew) and mix. Works best if heated in metal container (canteen cup) over an open flame. Adding ingredients to hot beverage bag and heating with chemical pad will work in a pinch. Serve with toasted corn kernels or crackers.

2. Pot luck pie


Beef stew
Cheese spread
Hot Sauce


Mix all ingredients but crackers. Crumble crackers over top. Mixes and tastes best if warmed before mixing.

3. Asian Beef Bowl

Asian beef strips
Garlic mashed potatoes
Cheese spread
Hot sauce


Mix well. Mixes and tastes best if warmed before mixing.

4. Loaded Baked Potato

Garlic mashed potatoes
Bacon cheese spread
Hot sauce
Crackers (or vegetable crackers)
Salt (optional)


Mix everything but the crackers. Crumble crackers and sprinkle over the top. Mixes more easily and tastes better if heated.

5. Apple/Pear crumble

Spiced apples (or pears)
Crushed oatmeal cookie (or patriotic sugar cookies)


Add creamer to the spiced fruit. Crush the cookie to a powder and sprinkle over the mixture. Best when served hot.

6. Ranger pudding


Cocoa Beverage Powder
Additional flavoring (PB, electrolyte powder, coffee)


Combine creamer, cocoa powder, and your additional flavoring in a pouch. Add a small amount of water and mix. Continue adding small amounts of water until the mix takes on desired consistency. For more sustenance, add throughly crumbled crackers.

7. Momma’s pudding

Vanilla dairyshake powder
Beverage powder of desired flavor (coffee, orange, etc.)
Sugar (optional)


Mix dairyshake, sugar, and beverage powder. Add water until mix achieves desired consistency.

8. General Patton’s Parfait

Momma’s pudding/Ranger pudding
Crackers/Patriotic sugar cookies
Spiced apples (or pears)


Make either pudding as described above. Layer pudding with crumbled crackers/cookies, nuts, and spiced fruit. To make other diners jealous, do so in a hot beverage bag so they can see how awesome your dinner is.

9. Frosting/Ranger cake


Vanilla dairyshake
Additional flavoring (PB, electrolyte powder, coffee)


Mix powder and flavoring with sparse amounts of water. Add water slowly until the mixture achieves the desired consistency. Spread on pound cake to create Ranger cake.

See? MREs can be amazing!

Hello! I'm back from a days-long hiatus.

RE: Poll

Trecdom2: Yo Trec Dude, I'm contributing to our Texas Fall Newsletter too:

1. LinkNon-Alcoholic Sangria


* 2 cups boiling water
* 2 black tea bags (or 2 teaspoons loose-leaf tea in an infuser; decaf tea is fine)
* 2 cinnamon sticks
* 1/2 cup granulated sugar
* 3 cups pomegranate juice
* 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
* 1 medium orange, sliced into thin rounds
* 1 medium lemon, sliced into thin rounds
* 1 medium lime, sliced into thin rounds
* 1 medium apple, cored and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
* 3 cups cold sparkling water or club soda


1. Pour the boiling water over tea bags and cinnamon sticks and steep for 5 minutes. Discard tea bags and stir in sugar to dissolve.
2. In a large jar or pitcher, combine tea, cinnamon sticks, pomegranate juice, orange juice, orange, lemon, lime, and apple. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour and preferably overnight.
3. Just before serving, stir in sparkling water. Serve in glasses over ice.

2. LinkThanksgiving Punch for a Crowd


You only need 3 simple ingredients to get started. The beauty behind this fall punch recipe is that you can play with the ingredients to reach a level of flavor that you prefer. Or mix in sliced apples or fresh cranberries. So easy and delicious!

Apple cider: This is the base of the punch. You can make Linkhomemade apple cider or buy it premade. You’ll need 2 gallons.

Caramel syrup: Gives it a rich, caramel flavor. The punch will taste like a Linkcaramel apple in drink form!

Pumpkin pie spice: Adds those warm and comforting fall spices. You can make your own Linkpumpkin pie spice at home with a mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves.


How to make Thanksgiving punch:

1. POUR the apple cider into the drink dispenser (all but 1/4 of the 2 gallons). Next pour in the entire bottle of caramel syrup.

2. STIR in the pumpkin pie spice. You can add as much or as little as you want. I’m usually a little heavy handed. :) The spice has a tendency to float to the top, so just make sure to give it a good stir again before serving.

3. SERVE the punch chilled, at room temperature or warm.

3. Link3 Ingredient Candy Corn Punch


* ⅓ of the glass pineapple tidbits make sure they are cold!
* ⅓ of the glass orange soda you can use orange juice, if you prefer
* dollup whipped cream
* candy corn


1. Fill the glass about ⅓ full with cold pineapple tidbits

2. Pour orange soda on top of the pineapple until the glass is about ⅔ full

3. Dollup a scoop of whipped cream (or ice cream) on top.

4. Don't forget to top with a candy corn!

4. LinkApple Cider Floats


* Sparkling Apple Cider
* Fresh Local Apple Cider
* French Vanilla Ice Cream
* Whipped Cream – Optional
* Apple Slice – Optional
* Ground Cinnamon – Optional
* Cinnamon Stick – Optional
* Caramel Sauce – Optional


1. Scoop ice cream into a cup & pour equal parts sparkling apple cider & fresh local apple cider.

2. Top with whipped cream, an apple slice, a sprinkle of ground cinnamon, a cinnamon stick, & caramel sauce.

3. Enjoy!


If you freeze your cup for at least 30 minutes your drink will stay cold longer & won’t melt as quickly.

5. LinkPumpkin Pie Smoothie


* 1 frozen banana
* 1/2 cup (120g) vanilla Greek yogurt*
* 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice*
* 1/2 cup (120ml) skim milk*
* 2 Tablespoons (30ml) pure maple syrup
* 2/3 cup (150g) pumpkin puree
* 1 cup ice cubes


1. Make sure you have a strong, powerful blender.

2. Add all of the ingredients to the blender in the order listed. Blend on high for at least 3 minutes or until smooth. Stop and scrape down the sides of the blender as needed.

3. Add more milk to thin out if it’s too thick or add a couple more ice cubes for a thicker texture if desired. Taste, then add more spices if desired.


Yogurt: We usually use vanilla Greek yogurt in this recipe. Feel free to use regular (non-Greek) vanilla or plain Greek yogurt instead.
Spices: Instead of prepared pumpkin pie spice, try adding a pinch of ground nutmeg, ground cloves, ground ginger, and/or more cinnamon to taste.
Milk: We usually use skim milk. Coconut milk, almond milk, or other non dairy milks or cow’s milk are fine replacements.
Pumpkin: Use homemade or canned pumpkin puree in this smoothie– not canned pumpkin pie filling. If you have extra to use up, Linkhere’s what you can make with leftover pumpkin puree.
Real maple syrup: For best taste, use pure maple syrup, not breakfast syrup.

6. LinkPumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate


* 1 cup of heavy cream

* 2 cups of milk – I used skim milk

* 1 cup of good quality white chocolate chips, Ghirardelli recommended

* 1/2 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract

* 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin spice

* Whipped cream and additional pumpkin spice to sprinkle on top.


1. Heat cream and milk in a pan over medium heat, stirring occasionally until hot but not boiling.

2. In a medium sized bowl, pour heated cream and milk over white chocolate chips. Stir until chips are melted.

3. Add vanilla extract and pumpkin spice.

4. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin spice.


Keep a close eye on the milk and cream mixture – once it is hot, turn off the flame. It doesn’t need to come to a boil.

Use good quality white chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate. The flavor and sweetness of white chocolate really varies. I have found the Ghirardelli white chocolate chips to have the best taste and have been able to find them at almost every grocery store.
