This summer I plan on investing in a dehydrator and drying alot of food,
especially veggies like corn, peas, mushrooms. I will also make some
"fruit roll up" type things.  GORP, trail mix, granola, powerbars,
peanut butter and candy will find their way into my pack.

In addition, I plan on eating instant mashed potato, instant grits,
cous-cous, minute rice and ramen noodles - all require very little
cooking. Pasta is good, but it has to boil for a while and is bulky in
comparison. The "insta-foods" also are very easily mixed with gunk. I
can mix in the dried veggies, dried sauces or instant gravy. Yummy. As
far as spices are concerned: salt, pepper, garlic powder, cinnamon,
sugar, butter buds/molly mc butter, maybe others... I don't know yet. 

Recipes: I don't really know off the top of my head. I plan to wing it
most of the time. There are some web pages that include recipes and tips
on drying food on my page (see URL in my sig).
