Is creamed chipped beef unknown in the non-American maritime world?

Despite the slang name (sh*t on a shingle), these have actually been great favorites in the USN and were great favorites of mine.

S.O.S (see above slang) is the white cream sauce dish, while 'minced beef' is a tomato based dish. The seasonings are very different, but we referred to them both as S.O.S., just defined by color..." Hey Dengler, there's red sos for chow..."

On the tables, in the sailor's mess, they used to leave the cans of condensed milk out for the night watches. These cans had two holes punched in the top. I never failed to catch sight of the **** end of a cockroach sticking out of the holes as it got stuck into the milk.

Once, I caught the deckboy catching them by tilting the can and trapping them inside.

Anyone for a good cuppa char in the sailor's mess?

The Chief Steward used to consider night sandwiches as perks and resented apprentices having them.. He used to mix fishpaste and margerine together, warm it to a semiliquid and spread it on one side of the sandwiches with the edge of the knife.

A sailor said to me "Cor,Ginger, they arn't 'arf posh, ain't they? Orl cut corner to corner with the bleedin' crust cut orf. Wot's that pink line in the middle?

I was fortunate to sail on a large, deep draft ship. She rode very very well, almost as good as a aircraft carrier. I've been through a couple big typhoons on her and never got sick.

On the other hand, in Reserve service afterward, I served on 2 older minesweepers. Both were wooden vessels and bobbed like corks, the small one, 368 tons, 144 feet long. She's the only one ever made me sick...

Tripe&onions with pigs trotters for starters. Who thought that one up, it's enough to make you throw your bowels up just sitting in front of it let alone eating it.

If a stronger soup is preferred leave the pea dangling for 10 or 15 seconds.
You sound like the type of tight fisted sod that would use the same tea bag 10-15 times before chucking it

Going back to the original question ; I would suggest .
Breakfast ; Cereal ; Oatmeal ; Ham ( not bacon ; too messy to clean up after ) and eggs any way ( boiled is the easy way ) Fruit juice ; toast ;jam coffee .
Lunch ; Soup ( home made use a pressure cooker ; no spillage )
Cold cuts ; salad ;cheese ; bread rolls ;oatcakes biscuits . Tea
Dinner . Use a pressure cooker or slow cooker as you indicate you have little space .
Stew ; Scotch Mince ; Chilli ; Pot Roast ; Shepherds Pie ; Spagetti .
Either boiled spuds or rice as the main veg with carrots or greens .

Serve with a bottle of claret and nips to follow ( nobody will complain ) except the cook who then has to clean up !
When I am on my boat and we have cooked meals I use soup bowls ( Deep ) to serve whatever . Eveybody has to wash their own plate and cutlery.
Biggest problem on a small vessel is not so much the cooking but the clean up after .

Having written this I now realise the post is quite old ; so you have either learned or given up .

I spent 7 years in the galley and I always did my menus a month in advance, when I was in a galley that didn't have a deep fryer I would still crumb or batter fish fillets and shallow fry them simply cook on one side and then turn them over, serve with mash potato and peas. Mince is a great all rounder if on a budget, Chilli con carne, spaghettii bolognaise, lasagna, meatloaf, burgers, beef kromeskis, just seaon mince and shape like a sausage and crumb then shallow fry. chicken, just quarter it flour it with a seasoned flour and fry it slowly, or crumb it first, you can just about curry any meat and serve on rice, when i was on a ship full of geordies I made oven bottom bread and pease pudding for them as well as steamed onion pudding, to go with the roast beef, bread is one of the easiest foods to make, it only consists of flour yeast, salt and water at its most basic level, make a dough prove it that is let it double it's size, knock it back and prove again 'til its double its size then shape it or place in bread tins allow to rise again and put it in a hot oven, you'll soon get the hang of it, I know as I have been teaching baking for about the last 30 years or so.
remember most times if it tastes good to you then it will taste good to others, generally speaking.
Good luck
Vic.

Don't know if this story is b/s or not, but there was a cook on the STA Winston Churchill who always put kippers on for bfst first morning at sea, reckoned no-one ate for a day or so and kept his rate down.
