Darrin,
I have always hated peanut butter. Gag...wouldn't eat it - it sticks to the roof of your mouth. Hubby absolutely loves peanut butter.

I made a ride with my friend Margaret earlier this year and she brought one and we shared it. Hahahaha...now I will eat them - I share the crusts with Biscuit. I tried to give him the center a few weeks ago and he was like me "naaaa, sticks to the roof of my mouth!" They are nice to drag around though. No refrigeration is necessary.

Denise, I thought that I was the only person in the world that hates peanut butter. I think that we were twins, separated at birth.

Not only do I love peanut butter the no refrigeration neccessary is the deal maker for me. I cringe at the thought of eating something with mayo in it after hours in the saddle bag.

My mom started sharing her crust with my horse over my objections. I finally ended it one day while we ate without dismounting. Her mare at the time was 15hh while my gelding is 16.2hh. I did nothing to stop him when he noticed her pulling out her sandwich. Lets just say her arms were not long enough to keep her sandwhich away from him. She quit feeding him her crusts after that.

I have a hard case Irish Draught horse that I use for trekking, and being of Irish Decent he is full of mischief...

I have to hide from him to eat anything in peace... he loves chocolate, peanuts any sort of sandwich or bread roll, he will pinch my stubby bottle of beer if I leave it on the ground, he picks it up with his teeth and lifts his head to drain the beer into his mouth... I have never known a horse like this one..hehehe

Several times now he has come inside the hut we are staying... imagine a full grown horse inside the hut... lol.. one time he nearly demolished a wall of a hut when he decided to back out thru the little door he came in thru.. it was so so funny..

I'm so lame! We just eat those dehydrated backpacking meals. Add hot water and eat! They are actually pretty good. I like the salmon prima vera best. But I like to pack light so we have plenty of room for bug spray!

For pack trips I eat dehydrated food myself. It's quick, easy, not bad tasting and most importantly light. They are just to darn expensive for horse camping when my pickup hauls the food instead of my horse.

Dutch ovens, etc....? what a luxury
To much weight . My cookware consists of a titanium cup and small titanium camp pot. Amazing how little they weigh.

My favorite? If I'm extremely lucky enough to come across a good sized snake it will be first choice. Super easy to clean, beautiful white meat and taste great (wish I could buy it at the store). Especially nice with the smokey flavor from roasting over the fire. It's wishful thinking though. 3 times in 40 years are not good odds even in the heavily snake populated Southeast.

Sometimes on the first day out I'll have the luxury of being able to fix bacon and pan bread fried up in the bacon grease (they'll keep that first day).

After that it's MRE's (chilli mac is always safe ) unless I ride past someplace to pick up something.

Celeste, that is possible!!!! Hahahahahaha. My husband was floored when I made myself a PBJ because I have always said I thought they were disgusting. I don't really like the taste of peanuts - oddly enough though, I like peanut butter cookies.

Biscuit loves to share a snack with me. He loves crackers, his former owner said he was crazy about animal crackers. Actually, Biscuit just freaking loves to eat. My first horse, Red, would turn his nose up at all kinds of stuff, run you over for Alfalfa, but an oatmeal cookie from Starbucks for his birthday , no less, was rolled around in his mouth as spit out!! Biscuit likes 2 point bars from Weight Watchers - Sarge likes them better though. Biscuit thinks they are too sticky on his teeth. Hahahahah I try to remember to give him a bite of whatever I am eating - he licked coke out of my hand last week.

Its Lbs Not Miles - OMG eating a snake?? Saints preserve me - I just passed out on the floor. I have heard of people eating snakes - I would have to be starving. I like all kinds of stuff but I am a little finicky over wildlife. Can you cook in the little titanium cup/pot thingy? That could work quiet nicely. Doesn't have to be fancy. Dried soup would work well, or heck even a can of soup to heat up. I like fish - if you were somewhere you could fish you could have a fine meal - just a little Tony Chacherier's seasoning and you would be good to go!!!

Snake is excellent eating. Taste better than chicken and cooks quicker too. It's just rare to come across one when I'm riding (they can feel the horse coming and are generally long gone).

Yes it's pretty easy to cook in the cup or pot. It works better than a pan since I can still fry in the pot as well as boil things. You just can't cook a lot at one time. Since it's usually MRE's I just boil some water and eat out of the pouch (not clean up afterwards ). Brew my tea right in the cup. Canned food is too much weight again. First night out from home is usually the luxury meal. I'll often go a few lbs heavy on the first day (since the horse is always well rested when we ride out from home) with things like bacon, and tube of biscuts, a little extra feed, etc, because I know they'll keep uncooled for the day and they're weight will be gone for the next day. Gives me an unhealthy (but tasty ) dinner and breakfast as well as an extra day of feed for the horse. That gives me the ability to make an extra day before I'll need to resupply.

I've taken some fishing line and hooks before, but it was almost always just excess gear since I seldom was somplace I could fish. Unless it was at a site I where I was going to spend the day resting I never really had the time to spend fishing even if I had a place to. I learned real quick to shed excess items that I didn't really need.
