Expedition Food

| June 8, 2008

This is a five-day breakfast and dinner menu which I have been refining over the years.  The leftovers (if there are any) from one meal work well with other meals and five different breakfasts/dinners keep the choices interesting.  For more days, just double or cherry-pick extra meals.  The idea with all of these is easy, quick cooking with minimal clean up, and thus less fuel usage.

Breakfast – Granola & instant milk

Dinner – Mexi-fest

            Instant Rice

            Instant beans

            Dehydrated salsa

            Beef TVP


Day Two

Breakfast – Dehydrated Hashbrowns & Sausage TVP

Dinner – Cheese Attack

            Mac & Cheese

Day Three

Breakfast – Instant Oatmeal

Dinner – Curry in a Hurry

            Curry paste

            Dried coconut milk

            Dehydrated veggies

            Beef TVP

            Instant Rice

Day Four

Breakfast – Sweetened couscous

Dinner – Figs Meal 

            Stove Top Stuffing

            Instant mashed potatoes

            Gravy (soup mix)

            Fried onion flakes (Frenchs)

Day Five

Breakfast – Cream of Wheat

Dinner – Spanish Inquisition

            Lipton Spanish Rice mixed with:

            Dehydrated veggies



 Appetizers & Deserts



            Mashed potatoes (soup thickener)



            Hot sauce

            Mixed seasonings

            Seasoned salt
