It can also allow for 'FBC Hybrid Meals' where you boil water for the starch, that is prepared in a freezer bag, then cook up a sauce in your pot while the starch cooks in a freezer bag cozy.
Where to find single serving items & condiment packs?

Thanksgiving On The Trail -
Over the years we have gotten many emails asking for meal ideas for late fall trips that fall on or near Thanksgiving weekend.
