Wining and Dining

I saw you guys talking about a food & beverage forum.

Vote for it or not and offer up potential names. It would probably fit best in the At Ease section.

Hell yes, we mark our occasions with celebratory foods and drinks. Does this group do it different? Probably. Even the rations you guys pack in the field plays a part in how far you can go per excursion. Food and drink was a continual sub-thread in Major John Plaster's last book.

Since I can now cook to please myself, I am always searching for new recipes and ideas. I know very few drinks - Rum & Coke, White Russian, Frozen Margarita - that I have actually tried. On occasion, I come across a SPAM recipe that I will be happy to share. Wonder if they make drinks with that, too? Hmmmmm.

Sneaky SPAM 'n Suds Station


Edited to add name suggestion - for NDD - no, I am not creative

No name suggestions = no vote.

Bill:

Look at the upper right of the page for two words in quotes which have the initials "QP".

How much firewater did you have last night, amigo?
