    I haven't had SOS in many years. We used to have it all the time, not sure what happened.

    I just got my "20 Year" letter last week.

    My Boy Scout troop spent a few weeks on Oahu in the summer of 66. We camped at Wheeler field & ate at the mess hall & also got rations that had little three or five? packs of cigarettes. We thought the smokes were pretty cool.The food in the little tin cans was not so hot.

With salted butter it's plenty salty as is, I just add a (un)healthy dose of fresh ground black pepper and ladle over split biscuits.

    3 of the smaller pouches makes just the right amount for 5 biscuits. Can't find the corned beef in the one pound packs around here, just the plain beef. If making a bunch for the guys at lunch, I usually buy a couple of the pound size and add few of the corned beef for flavor. I use Pilsbury butter flavor flaky biscuits, they come in 5 or 10 count rolls around here. If you put them in a non-preheated oven they get done right about the time the beef does.
    THX Kernel,

    I told my wife about it, and she is curious....Off to the store I go.

    All this talk of SOS is making me hungry. We had a variation of it here in the DFAC one morning. As I was scooping it over some biscuits I commented I love it when they serve SOS. One of the Navy guys was behind me in line and started laughing and said he hasn't heard it called that for years (the base here has army, AF, navy, and some usmc stationed here).

    For biscuits at home, if I don't have time to make cathead biscuits - I use the frozen pillsbury biscuits (either southern style or buttermilk). An 8" cake pan is the perfect size for putting in 6-7 of the frozen biscuits. Put in the 375 degree Fahrenheit (approx 200 degree celcius) oven and let them bake as normal. They rise up real nice and look good.

    Now I need to decide when to try bellson's recipe. It sounds good.

    A buddy's kid just deployed to Afghanistan. He is at a small outpost where they don't have hot food so it is MREs or local food when they can get it. I told him before he left to let me know if he needed anything. His first request was, "Please send lots of those chewable chocolate flavored fiber tablets you always carry with you when you go camping with dad. Eat too many MREs. I would like to be able to take a s#$t before I come home." I hope I sent enough for everyone. I eat MREs when we camp light and no matter how much water I drink, they always plug me up like a successful junk shot on a wellhead if I don't eat them fiber chews.

    I got a couple big bags of MRE crackers from my dad, he was throwing them out so I figured I'd grab them. Ate them at school for a while, got tonsa great funny looks... I should bring a whole one and eat it at my desk next year. Oh, we had some pound cakes, I wonder if they're still around. Those were pretty good...
    And now for some offtopic...
