Hutch I grew up eating shit on a shingle and loved it! One of my favorites and still is. They can keep fried okra and three bean salad though.
Some years ago Actiondebbie said that she was going to make three bean salad. Great, I thought. I'll eat it. The things you do for love. It was excellent!! Most of the food in the Navy was good to great ( chow on the sub was very good ) but they certainly missed the mark with the three bean salad.
Went to Navy Mess Halls for 20 years. No Subs though, Hospitals only. When I joined in 74, they served Bone-in Steaks, cooked to order once a week. Later switched to Paydays, then maybe once a month. Good food though, all you could eat for about $2.00.
