The best meals (I believe by far) are the Mountain House staples. STP, when adding them as new stock, carries a bunch of them. This one is delicious. Just open, remove the oxygen absorber, flatten the bottom of pouch, add boiling water, stir well and reseal. 10 minutes later a delicious dinner. The price on STP with deal flyer discounts is great. You can get 5 meals for the retail sites 3. The Chili Mac, Pasta Primavera, Chicken Teriyaki, and Beef Stroganoff are all excellent. I've tried a lot of backpacking meals: have constantly tried the more exotic meals by Backpackers Pantry, and I always come back to MH. Mountain House meals are more like home cooked; the meat like a piece of meat you'd add to a dish yourself. Backpackers Pantry's meat is usually tiny diced cubes that don't resemble meat at all.
