BD's worst meal in 84 was beef stroganoff.  Not many of us ate it...so after the Pt. Huron rainout show, when we were stuck at the Canadian border with Garfield, Freelancers, and 27th, we gave it to G

Grilled cheese sandwich made with butter flavored Crisco and fake cheese.

Nothing any worse than what the Ayatollah makes for us at home today. This woman uses the smoke detector as a timer. 

The worst thing a corps fed me was warm sweaty boloney on white bread, with "bug juice", Gatorade they mixed with their whole arm in the cooler and it often had bugs floating around in it.  

The worst thing a host family fed me was garlic pancakes.  We had spaghetti the night before and unbeknownst to anyone, one of the guys had mixed garlic powder into a whole tub of butter.  None of us could eat the pancakes.

As a member of Sky Ryders.....nothing. That is, we were not fed anything on multiple occasions.

Having lived most of my life in TX, Crossmen's 1996 "Fajitas" are a close second. That was a tortilla with lunch meat and Pace picante sauce.

Worst meal I ever had was "gravy bread". Corps was served turkey and gravy, but by the time the front ensemble got done loading and showering, there was barely any meat left. So the food ladies gave us sliced white bread and poured the remaining gravy with meat shrapnel over it. I should point out that this was in DCA, and what made it particularly memorable was that it was served to us right before finals. No better hype for your last performance!

Garlic pancakes?  I see no problem with the contrast of garlic & the sweet savory maple syrup, followed by the applewood smoked bacon.  :spitting:

What make this a medal contender is not so much the food combination but calling it a "Fajita".  

Bonus points for Pace "picante sauce".

Not sure what you mean, are you referring to the heatstroke meltdown and Cavaliers/police intervention in Pittsburg, KS in 2006? I was marching a different corps at that time but obviously knew people there.

Yes.  It was 105 degrees and I was told that all they fed the kids was leftover birthday cake.
