Bland and goopy is what they are.
I think that the options are always Thai because even at home you cook rice noodles by pouring boiling water on them and letting them soak. I found a box of powdered coconut milk and a box of indian curry powder. On the next backpack trip I'm just going to fix my own rice noodle bowl instead of using the pre-packaged ones.
one or more gifts or other benefits from the co-op.
