You are so lucky.  In Iraq, our cooks were from India.  Every bit of red
meat they cooked was cooked to death, and they put it on your plate like it
was going to bite them.

But the best times were when the supply trucks couldn't get through and they
had to improvise.  Whoever thought it was a good idea to put lima beans in
the fried rice or carrots in the fajitas was a sadist.
