“What is the most savage meal you have ever had?”
“What is the most savage meal you have ever had?” This is a pretty easy one for me. The most savage meal I ever had was in the Army, of course. This was late 2004 I was a sergeant at the time and the Army decided to turn our tank company into an infantry company. They needed more infantry for the wars. So, we all had to learn how to be infantry. After some initial training, we are sent to the hohenfels training area in Germany. This is called being “in the field”. We have been in the field for about two weeks and we are walking to meet up with our supply sergeant bringing us dinner. When he arrives, he informs us that he forgot all of the paper plates and plastic ware. On top of it all we have spaghetti for dinner. What the hell are we going to do? We didn’t have time to wait around for him to go back and get plates and forks, and we had to eat. So, I ask him if he has any bread? He says yes. Now when you have been in the field for a couple of weeks you are pretty filthy, no one has had a shower and there is no way to wash your hands. So, we all line up and get two pieces of bread he puts a big spoon of spaghetti on top and we walk off with our spaghetti sandwiches, on our way to our next mission. It may sound disgusting but when you are that hungry I remember it tasting pretty good.
I would love to hear about your most savage meal. Leave me a comment or send me a video and I will post the best ones on The Fancy Savage Facebook page. Use the hastag #mostsavagemeal
