that's sad, I love fresh onions
And I guess you've heard that your fresh food won't be coming in as fast as you'd like, either...
Oh, and you'll notice that the dried beans are nearly 5 years out of date! That's also pretty common round here.
Geodyne: yes, the planes are delayed. We're going to have to hope that the various visiting planes will bring us a bag or two of fresh fruit from Punta Arenas.
I didn't want to say anything about that
No. not dried carrots. please, not the dried carrots. have done my own time with them on canoe trips. bleughh.
can you fake scurvy?
Do you have any darkside dried onions? As the normal ones, they weigh nothing but their unholy advantage is that they're crispily pre-fried & all but oozing arterial disease. Love 'em! :)
Hildegard - we don't, but as the best thing to do with dried onions is to tip them out of the bag into a frying pan full of butter until they go brown, and then add water, we acheive the same result!
This is particularly important in field catering, where you need to keep your calorie intake up by eating lots of butter. In the old days people used to stir butter into their tea, but the ration boxes have been revised more recently to make this unnecessary!
Oh, and some nice Canadians flew in two days ago and brought us fresh fruit and veg, so we're all pigging out on salad at the moment!
(P) what's this?
