On cold weather trips, I cook up chili at home and freeze it. Pulled Pork cooked in the crock pot is nice for the first few days of the trip and slaw is easy to make up quick on the river.
Later in the trip, I tend to lean towards pastas and such that is easy to pack and by that point no one cares what the food tastes like.
One can even scramble the eggs before going in the nalgene. Just be sure to label those as not OJ
in a pronounced duct tape fashion. Some sort of pre-attacking the eggs sure makes breakfast easier. Saves time, kitchen mess and garbage.
Pasta dishes can be great if you prep a great sauce
before hand. If its just a Prego/Ragu no one will care that its food. Have that sauce frozen and then thawing at the end of the trip with a frozen colorful vege to be steamed and viola. Coming up with a garlic bread is difficult at trips end.
Pasta doesn't have to be a penalty.
People spend all this time lauding different noodles when the sauce is what makes the biggest difference.
