M.R.E.

Not "Mr. E" but real M.R.E's.

That's what we had for dinner the other night.

Ever had one?

You'd remember it if you did.

Why?

Because the Mr. brought them home for us to try.

He thought it would be a great experience for our family.

And it was.

Not that the food was great or anything.

But it was a great time of doing something new and different.

And we also got to talk about our military and the men and women who serve.

The blessings that we have because of their diligence and commitment to our country.

And when we have an abundance of choices for dinner -- and we're sitting with our family each night -
there are many who are eating whatever they're given and are away from their family.

We are thankful for the men and women who choose to serve in the military.


The excitement of having an MRE!  My girl cherub
choose the "vegetarian" meal!

It was fun to be able to open up the MRE and spread it all out . . .

 . . .and discover there are M & M's for dessert!  This was the best part!

Carefully adding just the right amount of water in the cooking pouch
and adding the heating element is an important part of having a "hot meal."


My cherub choose chicken and dumplings for his
dinner.  He was a little weary to take the
first bite.
