More Food Reviews
I broke into the bucket of Mountain House dehydrated foods. My lovely wife and I tried the chicken and rice. Unlike the Wise meals we've been eating, Mountain House has real chicken in its meal. Wise uses soy products instead.
The package claims to have three servings. Nope. It's more like two and that gives each person a little over 400 calories. A hungry person could eat the whole thing without any help from anybody else. The flavor was good. The meal was satisfying. All in all the quality was excellent.
The Wise packets require 4 cups of water and a pot to cook it in. The Mountain House chicken and rice meal only needed 2 cups. On the plus side, the meal could be prepared right in the package. It's a pretty well thought out pouch. The base is wide and stable and is resealable to prevent accidents.
So far we've only tried one of the Mountain House meals. Since we are camping near a Publix supermarket, our meals can be a lot fresher.
Today we had grilled rib eye steaks, sauteed onions and peppers, baked potatoes, and sliced oranges. Once in a while it's great to break away from travel foods. Our cooler has been running full blast as we've got electric power at our site. That has allowed us to purchase foods that need better refrigeration. Soon enough we'll be back at primitive campsites. No doubt my reviews of dehydrated foods will continue then.
