Backpacking Bagels

So nothing really beats bagels from NYC, but as we all know most food tastes good when you are (a) really hungry (b) outside and (c) made by someone else.

Bagels are sturdy and hold up far better than bread when stuffed into an overstuffed pack. You can toast them in in your frypan, and top them with almost anything. Here are some inspirations:

cream cheese and salmon (you can get it in a pouch in the tuna isle)
peanut butter and honey
butter and cinnamon sugar
melted cheese and tuna (again, opt for the pouch)
hummus (bring along the powdered kind and add water)
pizza toppings
re-fried beans and cheese (dehydrated beans are awesome!)

Birthday Backpacking

I recently moved to Jackson Hole to be able to more easily pursue an outdoor lifestyle. Which basically means that I am out playing more than I am blogging. The good news is that I have some new recipes and adventures to share now that we are in the off-season.

I turned 30 this past week and my boyfriend, Dan, took me backpacking in the Wind River Range. He also bought me some really awesome collapsible wine glasses to bring on the trip.

They are sturdy and lightweight and pair well with my platypreserve wine storage system or the awesome eco-friendly Bandit wine cartons. Pretty sure we'll be getting a lot of use out of these.
