Re: powdered everything

I bought powdered shortening at Eastern Mtn Sports (EMS) in VA.  I haven't
used it yet and don't know if I ever will.  I've since decided to keep meal
prep as simple as possible, and can't think of any reason to use shortening.
 (I used to picture myself cooking pancakes for a hearty breakfast on the
trail, but carrying a pack for a week cured me of that.)  I carry a small
squirt bottle of liquid margarine, and add a squirt or two of it to my pasta
dinners, where they call for margarine.  I don't worry about refrigerating it
as it is deep in my pack and doesn't get hot. 

If you find any good, easy recipes (which can be cooked using one pot and one
spoon), please share.
