Nasi Goreng, Turkey A la King, Oxtail soup still on the menu in this house. Posh food has its place but the menus we had at sea could keep you going for months. One exception was boiled silverside of beef, boiled cabbage and boiled potatoes which was all we had on the Fort Kamloops up the creeks of Borneo for weeks. We had it for Xmas dinner too but supplemented by a disgusting American fruit log which was made up of cough sweets and toilet bowl cleaner fruit.
I remember reading somewhere that Captain Cook took to carrying sauerkraut on his exploration voyages and after persuading the crew to eat it, virtually relegated scurvy to the story tellers onboard.

That brings back diabolical memories of Ambrosia (Food of the Gods ?) creamed rice, ate straight out of the can when camping, so no cooking involved !!! (Whoever forgot the tin opener was subsequently nailed to the nearest tree. )

Enough sugar in the bloody stuff to power a faster than light drive.

Took a bunch of students on an outdoor pursuits course, about 20 of them. They had been checked for contraband and issued with sleeping equipment, enough to see them through a night on the fells. Rations would be provided, they were told. We walked them up to Styhead Tarn, below Green Gable in late afternoon, there they were given a tin of rice pudding apiece. I know some were expecting something more warming and nourishing, but they did quite well. Next morning we went up Green Gable, one said "I miss the pig pens at home, concrete is better than all this bust up stuff."

One incident out from Bombay with a new crew of Goanese cooks and stewards, a breakfast menu that included curried bananas. Something of an acquired taste!

Yep Spongebob i #21 . Recall many years ago having a run in with the German "chef" in what was then the "Dateline Hotel" in Nuku'alofa", He insisted on serving "Watties Mixed Vegetables with the mains and Watties fruit salad for desert despite being 100 metres away from the excellent veggie and fruit market. His excuse - the frozen and canned products were consistent weather events made fresh products unreliable. The mass arrival of the Chinese in recent years has meant a much wider variety of fruit and veg.
