After his visit, my brother-in-law left some MREs (Meal, Ready-to-Eat vacuum packed meals used in the military). He buys them because Galveston is a hurricane area and MREs are pretty non-perishable. Also, he actually likes them. I decided to try one for lunch today. Chicken in salsa. Actually not bad, aside from being room temperature. I figured microwaving it would defeat the purpose of the experiment. We have an upcoming long car trip this month and MREs could be a handy meal for the road except that I’m thinking there’s only a 30% chance Sean would eat one. Also, it comes in a plastic pouch that would likely have to be poured into a bowl. I suppose it could be sucked out of the package, but that’d be a bit odd.
