Best meal in a Bag!

During my two night trip in Shenandoah National Park last month, I ate the best meal I have ever had cooked in a bag: Mary Jane Farms Curry in a Hurry!

It is always a challenge to eat great tasting meals on the trail.  The best meals have been ones that I cooked from a trail recipe, but that is a lot of trouble, and usually, a little more weight.  Someone at REI had recommended this meal to me, so I decided to try it.  Perfect!  Delicious!

Usually, I find that when I add the prescribed amount of boiling water to a backpacking meal, it turns out "soupy."  That was the case with my meal the previous night.  Not so with the "Curry in a Hurry."  The amount of water to add was just right.  The portion size is for 1.5 people.  I couldn't find a half person anywhere - I did look - so I ate the whole meal myself.  I topped it off with a piece of chocolate.  I highly recommend this meal and have already bought another one for my next backpacking trip.  It is vegetarian but not vegan.


  1. Glad to hear you enjoyed your meal on the trail.
    Name has a nice ring to it. : )

  2. Yeah, those meals are hit or miss. Ill try this one!
