    When preparing freeze dried meals like Mountain House, I always bring a packet of the Idahoan Instant Potatoes to mix into the bag just in case it ends up too soupy for my taste. If its a little to watery, the instant potatoes will soak up the extra water and add a little flavor to the meal.

    I’m partial to the 6 cheese flavor.

    Thanks for the show, keep up the good work.
