  2. Stir in tomatoes, tomato juice, and water. Simmer on low heat to thicken.
  3. Stir in nutmeg and sugar; simmer until flavors are blended well.

As a Marine aboard the USS Henrico on my way to Viet Nam, I had the pleasure of eating Navy Chow. This dish above all was my favorite. I haven't had this for over 44 years and now I've found it again. Now if my house could start rocking back and forth, I'll enjoy it more. Thank you for the memories.



One of the few dishes in the Navy I could keep down. Served at most of my commands every Sunday for brunch!
