Have you ever tried field rations? That's mummified (sometimes even petrified) food stocked by the military. It's not supposed to taste good. That's just a bonus. A good field cook can help a lot in this respect. All it has to do is fill your belly and give you enough calories to keep on going. And it has to remain edible for decades.
No matter what you think of McShrek, but any homemade hamburger would probably look the same. The bread becomes stale and dehydrated quickly and lasts forever in that state. Cheese hardens and also lasts forever. The meat I don't know, but it has been fried and is quite greasy, so it probably also dehydrates before decomposing.
That's just the way it is. A hamburger mummy looks very much like a fresh hamburger.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
I remember when my family first moved to Alaska (1959) my dad was part of the Air National Guard unit and acquired expired C Rations periodically. We used to take them when we went hunting for moose, bear and caribou. Actually pretty good once you figured out what the codes meant on the cans (DO NOT pick the 'potatoes' and try for the canned peaches)
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, navigate a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.

I love the children's novel The higher power of Lucky[^] by Susan Patron. (I'm not the only one - it won the Newbury Medal award for 2007)
I wrote the author an email, asking if that ridiculing of the army surplus food rations (distributed to low-income families) were real - there is a hillarious discussion in the book about whether that stuff really is meant to be cheese or something else than food!). She returned a very enjoyable answer, confirming that the stuff is indeed real, and as described in the book.
I will higly recommnend "The higher power of Lucky". Your children may love it, but as an adult you will see a lot of aspects that most likely goes over the head of the kids. And you will chuckle all the way while reading it, most certainly when it comes to the description of those army surplus food rations.
We're having Cassano's[^] pizza, a Friday favorite in our household. Mrs. Wife usually has a cheese & onions pizza, while I go for pepperoni, onions, and black olives or pepperoni and anchovies. Yes, I like fuzzy fish / sea roaches, etc. etc. Put the strait jacket down. Stop that. Let me go you cossacks!...
Perhaps not, but the sum of it is that he is minus one delete key!
