Homemade MRE, Menu 2, video

As promised, here is the second installment of Shipwreck Rations. Menu 2 is one that will definitely fill you up. How about buffalo chile, black beans, and rice, plus all the snacks? Check out the video below:

The two flameless ration heater bags are well worth the small extra cost. They heat up the food, making it as appetizing as possible. As mentioned, this menu is great for a cold climate or when you really need those extra calories. Menu 3 is coming soon, and it’s one that would be good for a shelter in place situation, such as your office. Check back often so you don’t miss it!

Homemade MRE, Menu 1, video

As announced several days ago here at The Bent Page, I came up with my homemade MRE meals, affectionately known as Shipwreck Rations. Menu 1 is about as simple as it gets, chicken and rice, with a flameless ration heater and some goodies on the side. Check out the video here:

That’s a great meal to take camping or keep on hand for an emergency. I’ve also taken it on bike treks and flying safaris, when dining options were severely limited. Of course, making your own MREs gives you the option of customizing them to your tastes, allergies, or other reasons. As I said, I didn’t save any money, but I did get exactly what I wanted. Check back here for Menu 2, which is buffalo chili, black beans, and rice, a meal for cold climates. Thanks and subscribe to stay up to date. (My YouTube channel, lenswork4, has more MRE reviews plus lots of other fun stuff.)

Koi on the Go, food truck

Koi On The Go is more compact than many food trucks I’ve seen lately. In fact, it’s a small trailer made of what looks like aluminum diamond plate. Here it is, parked at the Penns Woods Winery:

Not much room to work inside there, but the food was delicious. Let’s take a look at the menu.

We tried the Asian Sandwich and the Crab Cake Sandwich. Wow! Both of them delicious. Take a look:

Talk about tasty. That Asian Sandwich had the rich flavor of the pulled pork amped up with the bbq sauce. Yummy. I should have had another one! Anyway, it was all good. And the price was very fair given the high quality. Enjoy every meal!


Swarthmore Food Truckathon

For several years in a row, Swarthmore Co-Op has hosted a food truckathon. This year, I checked it out and was glad I did! Great food. Fun. All in one square block. Here’s the video:

Wow! Now I need to head back to the gym and burn all that off. Enjoy every meal.
