    Though I really don't care for pasta, spaghetti with meat sauce was really good in a 5 degree sleep deprived state last winter. I also like teriyaki with rice and beef stew.

    Beef Chili Mac!
    Have you seen the large boxes at Costco? They contain several pouches of M House FDs. Sorry, I forget how many, I remember it was a good deal. I bought two of them.

    Noodles and chicken. I've been known to go dig one out to eat for dinner when at home. Salty, but they all are. *side note-a couple times of year they go on sale at bimart and you can pick up main entrees for only $5 each

    I'm planning on getting some of these, but the sodium content is turning me off...Anything else out there that has a 15+ year shelf life with lower levels of sodium?

    Anything with a high amount of sugar will do the same. It too acts as a preservative of sorts so long as its dry.
    With as much H20 as there is on the planet let alone in Oregon and Washington dilution shouldnt be an issue..

    Unless its health related.. And in a SHTF scenario if we're really going through hard times sodium is the least of your problems. Lol ;)

    Polynesian "chicken & rice". Truth be told I like all of them pretty much. Spicy and salty, with some sugar, enough protein, mostly carbs, but not enough fats. Forget the salt if you are pushing hard manual labor, and hydrating with lots of fresh, zero sodium H2O. Fresh meat, canned butter, whole milk and fresh nuts etc. --> all good ways to add fat's to the diet, but obviously only if you are working hard. Hard implies 12-20 miles a day with a ruck and topography ar the equivalent.

    I'm thinking of re-selling MT House and MRE's, any suggestions?

    My son and I always eat them while hunting and love a variety of them but by far the sweet and sour chicken is awesome.

    Beef stew, Sweet & sour pork with rice, Beef stroganoff with noodles, Chicken and rice, Granola with blueberries & milk, Eggs with bacon, Italian pepper steak, Chicken fried rice, Eggs with ham & peppers.... To name a few off the top of my head.

    My kids and I have not had a mountain house meal that we did not like. The kids have not liked a few desserts, but I did, so more for me. :)

    I use MT when backpacking and find I like them all (seems I'm always starving while backpacking, haha) but seem to favor S&S chicken when making the choice which to eat first.

    The key to traveling far, and fast, and without mess or fire, leaving no trace but bootprints - Mountain House.

    Hot-water over alcohol ---> in the bag, long handled polished Ti spoon. Light and quick and clean and tasty.

    I like the Breakfast Skillet. As mentioned, tons of salt, but when snow camping and back country skiing or about to do the Seattle to Portland Bike ride in a day or something else equally stupid....600 calories in a single packet goes a long way.

    I haven't eaten one in maybe 30+ years, but back when we used to go snow camping my fav was Beef Stroganoff :) But I suspect MH has many more flavors to choose from these days.
