Just to bring back some gastric memories
Oh hell yeah! In the 60’s before freeze dried meals became available my Boy Scout troop carried these both hiking and canoe tripping. My favorite was Veg-a-Rice, although they all tasted pretty much the same. We also had (freeze)? dried sausage patties in a can. When you opened the can there was a sucking sound, so i guess they were vacuum sealed. You simply poured boiling water into the can, to the top, and the two patties re-hydrated and were hot. Eat them too soon and they were a bit dry. Not bad tasting though! I don’t recall who made them… maybe Armour meats??Worst? Anybody remember the Siedel (sp?) packets?
What's wrong with "Pesto, Oil and Garlic on noodles"? Maybe it would have been better with fish, but pesto (which has oil and garlic) on pasta is meal we cook at home and enjoy!A few years back we did our 1st trip to Algonquin PP. Everyone was responsible for one group supper.
Before we left I asked my daughter what she and her boyfriend were cooking.
Sounds good just make sure you have a backup and don't go into the meal having to catch a fish that day. If he catches a fish during the week we'll move you up.
She didn't have a plan 'B', they spent the afternoon desperately trying to catch a fish. We ended up with Pesto, Oil, and Garlic on noodles.
They retired to their tent and we broke out the cheese, crackers, pepperoni, and any other goodies we had left.
