Drjim gives a good weather report for our area.
Decided to make hamburger gravy for brunch. Reminded me of some Army breakfasts circa 1960’s.
We would be in the field, cold German winter, and the cooks in the mess truck would make hamburger gravy, scrambled eggs, hash browns, and toast.
I would take out my canteen cup and layer toast, hash browns and scrambled eggs topped off with hamburger gravy. Then the canteen cup went back into the carrier and the food would stay hot for several minutes.
Being a trooper with my shit together I had three canteens (bought two). The second canteen cup and cover was for coffee. The third was a backup.
Other than the dreaded Consolidated Mess Hall, I ate well in the Army. Part of that, I believe, was the cooks lived in the same barracks/tents as the troops they were feeding.
Soon it will be time to clean off the car and run errands. Two of the ladies in our building have asked me to take them to the grocery store (social security was paid out yesterday).
