What's For Dinner?
Okay, here's the obligatory rundown on the dining situation in Iraq. Yep, it's true that there is lots of food, and it's pretty darn good. It would be really easy to just eat tons every day, but I have seen a lot of troops here who obviously have done just that. So far, I'm eating mainly fresh fruit (all the watermelon I want, which is a lot!), and small portions of protein and veggies. I'm drinking more water and fruit juice than anything else. I have yet to try a cup of coffee since arriving in Kuwait...it's just too darn hot outside. Will likely have coffee in the office once settled in at our FOB, but who knows when that stuff will arrive.
