Sometimes all we want is a little home and lots of comfort food.
On October 13th, Redditor Quiet-Childhood9532 posted about his brother returning home from military training. Specifically, an extensive list of items my brother wants to eat when he gets home.
“My little brother is coming home from boot camp next week. increase.
The items on his “food wish list” are wide-ranging and run the gamut from home cooked meals to fast food restaurants he wants to go to snack foods he craves.
“This is his original list. I’ve added a few things he mentioned in other letters,” Emily told TODAY Food, noting that her brother had 10 days to go home after graduating from bootcamp. I added that you can. 13 weeks. “For his 10 days at home, he plans to spend time with his friends and family, rest and eat lots of food.”
A long list of 27 items includes smoked mac and cheese, sushi, donuts, brownies, cereal, pancakes, French toast, honey buns, Dairy Queen, Popeye (“maybe”), Arby’s, a meal at a Mexican restaurant, and more. I have. Among joints, Oreo balls, cinnamon rolls and other drive-thru and home-baked delights.
There’s also an item on the list called the “Slutty Brownie,” for starters, which consists of layers of cookies, layers of Oreos, layers of brownies, all baked into one decadent dessert. (See Gabby Dalkin’s recipe here.)
Emily’s brother also mentioned in the first draft of his food wish list that a boot camp friend told him about the recipe and wanted to try it.
If you’re wondering why he has such an appetite, other people who have gone through bootcamp have shed light on his voracious appetite for familiar foods in the comments. One Reddit commenter said that after basic training, he visited McDonald’s three times a day, one of which was after he ate donuts and he ate eight. It is clear that some service personnel take the opportunity to eat when given the opportunity after such long and sustained physical activity.
“He didn’t say much about what he would eat, except that he had to eat really fast,” Emily shared. Didn’t, but he talks a lot about peanut butter packages!”
According to Military.com, most chow halls these days also have a salad bar, fried chicken, seafood, Mexican food, pasta, burgers, hot dogs, chili, French fries, and other junk food, but at least this is clear. is. For the gentleman, there is no on-base smashburger he can eat.
Emily said she had to return to California to continue training after her time at home was over.
“He really loves Popeye, but we don’t have one where we live,” said Emily.
All in all, Emily is extremely proud of her brother and can’t wait to see him go home and feed his appetite for his favorites after he graduates this month.
“It was his goal in high school to be a Marine. We are so proud of him!” she said. “I’m sure you’ll be the typical younger sister who cries at the graduation ceremony!”
