Bacon is it's own food group. My dogs won't even eat kibble unless it is properly dressed with bacon bits and drippings.
I've been doing the freezer-bag meals for a number of years, and truthfully don't use much else. I match up the days out I'll be with the number of egg omelette's I bring. I load 'em up, bacon, cheese, floor sweepings and all, freeze em and stack 'em flat in the freezer. I pull out however many I need. Oatmeal is simple enough. I put the oatmeal, some trail mix, a tablespoon or so of powdered non-dairy creamer in the freezer bag and seal it. When I'm ready to eat, I heat up the water and pour it in the freezer bag. I have two hot pads [2 buck layout @ Wally World] glued together on three sides to form a "freezer bag sleeve". I put the freezer bag of dry mix in the pot holder sleeve, pour in the boiling water, seal the bag and leave stand about five minutes and devour. I've done freezer bag chili, soups, hot dish. No pans to clean. Other than bacon, I don't eat fried foods, and I usually put bacon ends in the omelets to get my daily allotment of smoky pig. I carry a cooler, size depends on how long I'm going to be out. The frozen omelets, chili, soups keep well enough. No reports of Ptomaine to date, so I keep on keepin' on. If it looks like heat will spoil what I brought along, it gets ate up first. There's always Ramen, tuna and oatmeal for backup. I like to eat well when out in the bush. I don't feel I've made any great sacrifices going to the freezer bag method.
One guy I ride with dehydrates EVERYTHING. I swear he stops for road kill. He'll boil water in the morning, add his secret ingredients, [Chef by trade] including his dehydrated veggies and protein source, [polite for "of questionable origin"] all to Thermo jugs. Add the boiling water and either stash at camp or pack on the bike. That evening, a feast is ready. Rinse out the Thermos and repeat. I'm still of the mind set that if you hit the railroad crossing too hard with a half ton pickup, you'll be buying a new Thermos. Glass lined Thermos's went out with rotary phones, I'm told.
