Meals, Ready to Eat- military field rations
also: Meals Rejected by the Enemy or Meals Rejected by Ethiopians
Instead of some 'hot chow' today, all we got was an MRE.
Military acronym originally meaning "Meal, Ready to Eat."
Modern MRE's generally consist of a main course, bread and spread (grape jelly, strawberry or blackberry jam, jalepeno cheese, etc.), a desert (pound cake, M&M's,), powdered drinks, a condiment package, and a heating element (in case the soldier is interested in a semi-hot meal). Each MRE, when fully consumed, is approximately 2000 calories, the suggested daily caloric per day for an average person.
The quality of MRE's has consistently improved, though when compared to other food, it is still FUBAR
. This explains why MRE's have several derisive terms:
- Meals Rejected by Everyone
- Meals Rarely Enjoyed
- Meals Rejected by Ethiopians
- Meals Rejected by the Enemy
- Meals Refusing to Exit*
There are methods of enjoying an MRE so that it's not particularly terrible. "The Ranger Cookbook" is an unoffical military documents which provides the soldier an effective means of mixing and matching MRE's so as to have the most enjoyable meal possible.
* This acronym may be outdated; supposedly, the gum included in the condiments package is a mild laxative.
During the bag drag, my flight made sure we had six MRE's to a person. We'd worry about who was getting the shittier menus later.
prepackaged food carried by the armed forces for use on the field during battle (an initialism that is often reinterpreted by soldiers that don't like them hence terms like meals rejected by the enemy)
My brother onced remarked that he would not mind having an MRE.
This man is incredibly dangerous. Mr. E drives his motorcycle too fast. He does not follow rules, EVER! He will charm you with his incredible sexiness. His tattoos will distract you and his voice will more than likely send you into a feverish orgasm. That, however, is only one of many, many talents. Mr. E carries a list with him outlining his vast capabilities. Do not dispute them; they are all true.
Mr. E does it better than you can.
The M.R.E.'s are a vacuum packed high calorie food pack that contains enough food for one meal . M.R.E.'s are so disgusting that they are known as three lies in a bag . Also the inspiration for Ranger cooking .
Private Pile took the crackers and chocolate mix from his M.R.E. and made some ranger pudding.
