Chow Halls all smell the same

I am at Palo Alto VA this morning and having my usual monthly egg, gravy and hashbrowns. Every time I come here I am reminded of every Air Force chow hall I ever went into they all smelled the same to me.

That looks awesome. Just need a couple of these sticky buns to go with it.

When I was in the Navy they had this specialty known as SOS, I had my first taste in boot camp and still remember it till now.

I think SOS is a standard across all branches. My dad remembered it from WW II and I got it so much in army basic that I still like it.

I thought the Air Force had "Dining Facilities", not 'chow halls'. SOS for me, every time.

The only exception that I found in my career was the dining facility at K-16 just south of Seoul Korea during the early '70s. It was what now looks and feels like a regular restaurant like an Applebees. And every Sunday they would have steak, real steak!! We would somehow always have to make a supply run on Sundays to partake.

I was in the Air Force, at the same base for four years, and it smelled like other bases all the time. SOS was a standard on the menu every day. I miss the good old days.

There was SOS and then there was really good SOS. I never cared much for the recipe where they mixed flour and water. Heck we used that to glue wall paper. Bland, tasteless.

Now good SOS is made starting with real cream and then lots of butter.

Every Sunday after Church we go for Brunch. I have a place now where the SOS is to die for. It has lots of sausage crumbled up in it and the biscuits are tender and flaky.

My Wife makes it using chipped beef and that's pretty good too.

Well anyway, come Sunday I will be savoring SOS over biscuits and hash browned potatoes along with eggs over easy.
