How to prepare:

I dry foods using a dehydrator now - however, an oven at the lowest possible setting with the door slightly ajar will work.

Note: Tomato leather is listed as a recipe of it's own on this site if you are not familar with making leathers.

Tomato leather in plastic wrap, each type of veggie and potato flakes separately in plastic bags, garlic powder and other spices into a plastic bag, Soya sauce in a leakproof container or in individual packages, ground beef in a plastic bag, spaghetti in a plastic bag. Wrap all the ingredients in a heavy plastic bag with At Site instructions.

At Site:
Rehydrate the dried veggies, ground beef, potato flakes, and tomato leather with the spices, soya sauce in 6 cups of water for 30 min in cook pot. Bring to the boil and simmer for at least 30 min stirring occasionally. In another pot - cook pasta until tender Drain pasta and serve with sauce.

Get a free hot bath, groundcovers, and waterproof bags. Use 2 contractor's strength heavy duty black garbage bags. Use as waterproof groundcovers, mini-tarps or stuff sacks. Fill each bag with water, tie, and set it in the sun. Water heats up. Sit in one bag, loosely tie around your neck, soap up and soak out. Then step out and into the other bag, tie up, and rinse off. Enjoy your bath outside with nature!
