I have been looking at this at Costco for a few months so I picked it up and was totally blown away this little dehydrated carton made a serving for four to six so the eight pack was $6.99 this is perfect for backpackers and camping.

It says seven servings per container but that is for skinny people.

If you are going to have a cooking thread, it MUST include road kill consumption stories.
Okay, I'll begin.
Way back in the mid seventies three of us were in a PU headed into Portland on old route 30. Ahead of us I saw a big cock pheasant try to run across the road in front of the car ahead of us.
As the car passed over him he ducked down but raised his head too soon and it was clipped by the rear bumper. Cars actually had bumpers in those days. I yelled stop the truck! And as my friend slammed on the brakes I jumped out and caught the floundering bird which had just been knocked dizzy. I was about to wring its' neck when the driver yelled NO don't damage the cape feathers. I want to tie flies out of them. Holding the bird in my left hand I picked up a stick in my right and was about the kill it with a sharp whack to the back of its' head when a car with 4 old ladies pulled to a stop behind us.
I hit the bird and it went spastic. The old lady riding shotgun rolled her window down and I could tell by the look on her face she was a pissed off Audubon society member and was about to deliver a sermon.
I realized that this was a once in a lifetime opportunity so with her mouth open but before any words came out, I said in a loud voice, " Whassa matter? Haven't you ever seen a man beat his c*^# before?"
At which time I thwacked the bird to death quickly. She just gaped at me as her driver floored it and peeled rubber out and around us.
Later that night with a blanket of bacon toothpicked onto it the bird went into the oven at my cabin. We washed it down with Jack Daniels.
Oh, and my friend got the beautiful feathers to tie his flies with.

Natures tic tac....Creeping snowberry!
Wood Sorrel...tastes reminds me of rhubarb/spinach

I like foraging for wild edibles. I know of a few others but I'm not sure of the names. One less thing to pack and if they're in season then they're fresh!

I think they intend for us not to make a meal out of one item. Otherwise too many people eat one HUGE meal a day which makes portions look smaller and your body more likely to store calories and gain weight. Which is part of why I'm skinny. So..I guess you're right. Hehe

Okay I'll try to post a picture. This is cooking as I have room for all this stuff in my sidecar.
I can cook anything in that green pot. Meat, veggies, coffee, roadkill, bath water, laundry, etc.
Generally I do the coffee first then the stew, then wash everything, then wash me.
BTW, that little coleman stove uses the same fuel as my bike.

Holy cow! You need to post a picture of your panniers. :D
Its a rather large pannier.....


These pics are from a trip to Baxter state park in Maine. We rent a cabin up there with no power or water and ~2 hours from the nearest store so you really need to pack everything in, food, water, everything. When we go we stay for over a week so a lot of gear and food is needed. We like to eat well hence the big coolers(i want to replace these so we dont have to get ice)....

Here are more pics of the place and some of the hiking trips we went on last summer.

I love the premise of this thread. How about some ideas for light weight packing? I will start with my favorite camping dinner. This can be made with ANY small stove some water and a canteen cup.

1 pack Ramen noodles.
1 2oz can of chunk white chicken breast. "honestly I am not sure of the size" it is identical to a small size can of tuna fish. 4 cans are the size of a can of soda.
1 half dozen saltine crackers.

Cook noodles, add season packet, strain chicken and add to noodles, add broken crackers until the stew is thick. Enjoy:D


The beauty of this meal is that everything can be crushed during transport "except the chicken" and the meal turns out the same. If you close your eye's and use your imagination it reminds you of chicken and dumplings.
