Simple In Sweden

After a monster meal at Geranium, Denmark had proved its culinary metal.

C-rations

A few bits from a book that could use a spork, “G.N” He took a can of chopped eggs, added some chocolate from a Hershey Trop bar— a high-melting-point chocolate developed for the jungle—and mixed in some Tabasco and A1 sauce, both of which he’d carefully hoarded from his last R&R.
