For years now Ive been packing in the same old thing into the backcountry.
coffie and power bar in the morning
granola bar for a snack
tuna and cracker with top ramen for lunch
Mountain house for dinner.

It getting a little old. so im looking for some new idea's. Mainly for lunch but I wouldn't mind seeing your whole menu. I don't want to have to prepare anything at home before had. store bought is just fine for me.

Help a brother out will ya.

thanks

Here is a new idea for you. Instead of $7 Mtn House that always tastes like crap why not spend a dollar at the grocery store you go to anyway? Buy a Rice-A-Roni and maybe take a can of chicken or spam with you. You get out the skillet, pour in some olive oil from a plastic bottle you got at the Army-Navy store and heat it up. Pour in the rice and some water. Voila!

YOu now can stay out another six days for the same 7 dollars and eat different every night.

Breakfast: Two packets of intstant oatmeal.

Lunck: Tuna pack from your local grocery store. Comes with a small can of tuna, mayo, relish and crackers. Also planning on bringing a couple of apples to cut up and dip in peanut butter cups.

Snacks: Beef jerkey, trail mix, dried fruit

Dinner: Mountain House

Dessert: Snickers bar.

MH meals taste pretty good, as a matter of fact, I could eat the Strog every day. Not to mention, I'd gladly pay $6-7 a day to not have to wait 45-60minutes to eat after hunting all day.

Bingo.....its a good idea but I roll into camp after dark every night and this time of year that means its after 9pm aready. I want something fast so I can hit the sack.

And the MH meals that I have had are really good. Love the beef strog

I've been testing out the asian noodle stuff at the grocery store. There's a couple good ones. Way better than top romon.

I agree that the MH taste pretty good as well. Especially after a long day of hunting.

I always take oatmeal for breakfast or a quick snack later in the day. I'll add some fruit and nut trail mix to it so its not so boring.

Not really for backpacking, but Costco sells the precooked packaged chicken that's sliced up. Heat it up with a soup or premade pasta, add some bread or tortias, you’ll have a full dinner in 5 min.

for lunch specifically I have also done:

wheat tortilla folded in half with peanut butter, bacon and honey or wheat bread with the same (I usually only make two for the first lunch as I do not know how long it would last in my bag past that)

This year I'm going with the MH for dinner but adding for lunch cooked meat, cheese and hard boiled eggs. I'm vac sealing and then when in the BC sink them in the deeper pools of ice cold running streams. Hoping this makes 10 days really nice!!!......hell maybe some fruit if I feel lucky...fresh oranges in the AM.

Snickers and Pay day for breakfast

MH pro-pak for lunch

MH big boy for dinner.



Take a needle and remove the air from the MH big boys above the zipper and cover with a small square of duct tape. Get that food bag down real small.

If it is cold but coffee doesn't sound good, hot water and G2 grape mix is pretty good too...

GOOD LUCK!
Give me a bow, a topo and two weeks and I guarantee I kill two weeks!

After a LONG day out in the field, MH does the trick for me. Costco has a ten pack of MH for $42.00 ($4.20 per meal).....Not a bad deal!!!
