Thanks have just found they sell these at Ocado online so have added this to my store cupboard along with other peoples suggested M&S tinned curry, for when I fancy a change from Toasties!These are great and can be mixed with any old thing you have to hand. Loads of different types and available in lots of supermarkets. Long shelf life as long as the packet stays in good nick.
One pouch will serve 2 easily and will fit in a Ridgemonkey XL, or cook in any pan with a lid. Just add a couple of tablespoons of water.
They look interesting and ideal for both general and fall back purposes. Do they have any special storage requirements?
We had something similar in the fire service for feeding the troops at large or protracted incidents, although in that case the food was in self heating cans.

Just use the pricker (supplied) to pierce the area surrounding the lid in several places and a short while later after an exothermic reaction has taken place, you had yourself a hot meal in a tin. You had to remember to open the tin slightly or the owner could end up wearing most of it. I used to carry a couple in my car. They were ideal for those occasions where I found myself tired and cold, kicking my heals somewhere in the middle of the night. One of those chaps made all the difference.
Well I tried one this morning just for you.
Had forgotten about the tinned m&s curries!M&S tinned chicken curry and rice.
Given a little more time to prepare, bolognese sauce, prepared at home, frozen, and semi defrosted in the CFX on the way to our destination. Usually served with conchiglie because spaghetti is such a pain in a small camping saucepan.
Ah! That would be Mutton Scotch Style if I remember correctly. The only thing you could do to make it edible was put curry powder in it. That’s the MOD for you!Sausage and beans is really the only one that I can remember now. There was one particular that was best avoided at all cost but can't remember what flavour that was.
I presume you don't have a kitchen at home then.Anyone else got a thing about not cooking in the van? . With this in mind I pretty much only bbq when I’m in my cali. Sunshine = bbq, rain = bbq, weather were you wonder whether keeping the awning out = bbq. To be fair I just like bbq even did the turkey on the kamado at Xmas.
my fav road trip meal…
ring of 40 chicken wings - slow cooked on the Cobb. (Use plate and then put wire rack on top to keep off direct heat - I use tin foil wedges to get the rack even higher into the dome) - cook for 1hr 30mins. (Rub wings before cooking with 1 tbsp of each: Onion salt, paprika, oregano, garlic powder, mustard powder, cayenne pepper & sugar and yes I keep these all in the van )
