I think you're referring to "Potmess" rather than Mess Pot.
Potmess is/was a gastronimical feast of epic proportions, using up whatever was left over in the stores when a boat/ship was returning from a patrol etc. Virtually no ingredient was considered unusable in the mix, and it usually tasted "essence", especially when accompanied by a couple of tinnies, or a carefully concealed tot from the storage bottle!
But of course A La Carte . With fresh bread baked daily, Patrick. Just ask the Chef if its not up to your taste/liking :w00t: :thumright: Ps He will lay on Stobhach Gaelach just for you :thumright: Over to you Red Sailor :thumright:
Maccie D's, KFC, Take away Indian, Chinese or Pizza delivered by a steward to your cabin or place of duty. A heath Food bar for the "Grab and Go" busy people. Unlimited bottled water cos wot the distillers make is unsafe for drinking. What sort of bread do you eat most boats have a choice of at least 4, Rye, White, Stoneground wholemeal, Malted. This is just about the service submariners have come to expect.
Or it maybe just the three choices at each meal, "Take it", "Leave it" or "Wear It", Just ask Babychef.
In fact try answering some questions occassionaly instead of asking, then perhaps people will not think you are a Jouno or wind up merchant.
How dare you complain about food on boats some of the navy's rarest delicacy's were standard aut cousine on boats, i.e Tram smash, Shit on raft, Potmess and the rare almost exstict Cackleberry, all served from the Michelin 5 star deli. A delight for any connoisseurof the finest cousine.
