RonK - Deb mashed potato with onion???? Has Deb got better over the years. We were actually talking about it the other night, and I haven't had it for 20yrs, so I'm interested in it's addition here.
My menu depends on length of trips, and expectations of companions. Breakfast pretty well always a hot drink and muesli bars; lunch for short trips is wraps with salad/ salami/ or "bucket lunch" ( salami chunks/shredded cheese/ salsa/ broken up corn chips) in wraps. Dinner more varied. Took daughter 3 ski touring on Bogong last year, and she was keen to have Peking duck for dinner, so we carried up some pre-prepared cut up Peking duck, which was then heated up in a plastic bag in boiling water, which also provided the steam to heat the pancakes, and we then put it together with spring onions, cucumber and sauce. Yummo. Ive also done hamburgers, dumplings etc, but, by myself, I'm more than happy with cheese and bickies, cup of soup, 2 minute noodles, and chocolate. In the snow I really like simple stuff which is cleaned up easily.
Depends on your interest in food. Dining in the bush is not "an experience" for me . It is food.
