2 packets instant oatmeal (1 flavored, 1 regular)
Dried Fruit
Grape Nuts

Combine ingredients in a bowl, add hot water, stir, and enjoy!

Cabin Bread Sandwiches
Create small sandwiches on these hard crackers (traditionally used by sailors) using an assortment of peanut butter, jelly, apple butter, and cheddar cheese.

Luna Bars
Although they are made for women, all genders of Antarctic explorers can enjoy these tasty treats! Our favorite flavor is “Nutz Over Chocolate.”

1 can Mexican style tomatoes
½ bag textured vegetable protein (TVP)
1 can black beans
½ bag Fajita Blend frozen veggies
1 packet fajita seasoning
2 tbsp butter
Tasty Cheddar cheese

In a pan combine Rice-A-Roni and tomatoes. Heat until the liquid evaporates, stirring occasionally. In a pot hydrate TVP with water. Add beans, veggies, seasoning, and butter. Heat until the veggies have thawed and all the ingredients are hot. Assemble fajitas in a tortilla and add cheese for extra flavor.
Makes 6 fajitas.

Heat up some frozen burritos on a skillet for a quick and tasty meal! Add butter so they don’t get too sticky.

2 tbsp butter
1 jar pesto
¼ cup sundried tomatoes
