The men and women serving our country are exposed the toughest of situations and eating meals ready to eat come with the territory.
That is where a Baltimore restaurant owner comes into play.
Sarah Simington, who owns Blue Moon Café, said she has traveled all over the world, including to Africa, Japan and the Persian Gulf.
Simington’s passion for food takes her out of her restaurant and all over the world while taking her signature meals with her.
“I work for Navy entertainment and I am honored enough to go around the world and feed the troops (and) bring them a taste of home,” Simington said.
Simington said what better way to accomplish that goal than through food.
“They are used to eating what we can boil in a bag,” she said. “Every three weeks it changes. Everything comes out of a bag. There’s no nutrition, no fun, no home.”
Simington said that she gives the service members that home cooked meal, even though they are thousands of miles away from the U.S.
“”I’ll get choked up when I start to talk about it,” Simington said.
The troops love the food and appreciate the gesture, and for Simington, that is the ultimate comfort food.
“It’s because of their sacrifice that we’re allowed to be here and have news programs, and have restaurants and go out to eat and do all those things. Without our freedom, we wouldn’t be here.”
