This past weekend the museum hosted a living history event with "Kelly's Zeroes", a local group of US Army WW II re-enactors. I volunteered to serve up some US Army WW2 chow for the re-enactors The menu included 1941 beef pot pie, 1941 field bread and 1943 cinnamon rolls. I'll post the cinnamon roll recipe in the near future.
