Food for any trip- these mashed potatoes are excellent. A small package serves 8 and lightweight. Using powdered milk, maybe not so good and butter is a must. But short boil time, small package and pretty light are great for a pack.

Packit Gourmet makes a little silicone baking/steaming kit that rocks. I tried the pizza and it was meh. But making fresh cupcakes and even fresh bread (not joking) is easy and super tasty.

These chocolate lava cupcakes are the best thing I've ever eaten on the trail. Bar none.

On Denali in 2011, I was introduced to Quinoa as a alternative to rice, pasta etc. What do you guys think of its merits for high stuff? Would a more traditional carbohydrate food be better?

It's flavour of the month in the Running World. It got favourable mention in "Born to Run". I think it's a fad. I don't think it will be easy enough to obtain. Try and find it in the last market before you hit the big peaks.

Is that potatoes and meat for dinner and a brownie for dessert?
