Who has an awesome recipe to share?!?!?!?

Hey John, 

I like to keep it simple.  Annie's mac and cheese with freeze dried veggies and some sliced up summer sausage.  I throw in a bit of dehydrated milk and freeze dried butter to make this even better.  This was my go-to meal for most nights while through hiking the JMT.  

These home made combo meals are much more satisfying.  REI sells the Harmony House Backpacking kit - it's a great starter set of freeze dried veggies and beans to help you create your own meals.
