IIRC POM meals come with instructions on them.
Seems these are the homemade type

Yes, my wife's homemade "Pom" meals.

1) No need to freeze the bag, but bring many ice packs. Should try to have at least 5 - 10 if you can fit them. It make a big difference in keeping them from defrosting at all.

2) My instructions have been 300 - 350 F for 60 minutes. I rarely had it come out less than piping hot. In fact I usually can't touch the tin for a few minutes after it's delivered. When you're hungry, you don't want to be waiting 90 minutes!
You mean the cooler itself? That could be room temp.

And you'd probably get a better answer to your second question in the kosher food while traveling thread.

Ok, I remember reading somewhere that Dan or someone else said that the ice packs may or may not be necessary, but if I have room for them I may as well pack them. It's a short stay in DXB -- 4 nights -- and only two of us traveling, so we should have plenty of room.

I was thinking of grabbing a few 5-lb slices of dry ice, cost permitting.  That might be overkill.

Thanks for the heating recommendations.

Two logistics questions, in preparation for a trip to DXB in a few weeks, taking DW's "Pom" meals for hotel re-heat:

1. Do I need to freeze my Polar Bear cooler before packing it, or can I pack it room temperature?

2. What heating instructions for frozen meals? I'm guessing 60-90 minutes at 175-200C. Please advise.

Thanks.

I didn't notice until I had left the store. I emailed them. Do they normally resolve this type of issue by email?

Did you buy the $500 card at self checkout, cash register or service desk?Who is the issuing bank? Need a card that works for MO at WMT.  Thanks.
Is it a Vanilla card? If it is it will not work for WMT MO's, what is the issuing bank? Thanks.
I donít remember which bank. It was not Vanilla.  Nor was it meta bank.  The package said Walmart on it. Fee was less than $5. I didnít try it at WM for MO. Bought from regular cashier.

There's a Sefardi shul on Corey St in Brookline/Brighton, Rabbi Hamaui.
There is also a sefardic shul on Ward Street in Newton, across street from Beth El and down the block from Shaarei Tefillah, both modern orthodox ashkenaz.

Assuming you only bought econ. Also assuming people bought at the cheapest fare.
Just so I can flagellate myself some more, can you tell us what was available in J or upgrade-eligible Y?

Are people crediting these AC flights to Aeroplan?  They are all Tango
Planning to credit to UA.
IIRC, it's something like 50% of miles flown. Not much, but it's something.

Farby in my sukkah.
PM for address.
Wish I could be there.
Makes me wonder what the Rebbe would have said at a farbrengen about DDF and all its constituent activities.

IME, yes. Seems to me that the only MS option is $200 cards for ~$7 fee purchased online. Unless someone else has a better idea...
