I am not interested (at the moment) in gourmet cooking in my little U-Haul
, but I do want to eat something tasty, so I read a number of blogs and recipe books by backpackers and took some of their advice.
The Bear Creek Country Kitchen soups and chills can be divided up into smaller portions and then you just need to boil water. Most of the time is spent off the heat letting it cook in the hot water. I have to say that I really loved the macaroni and cheese, and am looking forward to some of the other ones.
I make up yoghurt, fruit, and granola cups in the summer time. Hot instant oatmeal in the colder weather. Other things start out frozen and then get eaten after they have thawed, like brownies or chocolate chip cookies.
