I only get a couple multi day trips myself but then I have tried the store bought meals and decided my cooking was better,lol.
This winter I have dehydrated bison, elk and beef and will use it with Liptons noodles and sauce for most of my meals. I make a sea food chowder that is sooo tasty as well and it re-hydrates nicely. Liptons or Knorr make a three cheese spaghetti or three cheese noodles that is very tasty as well.
After I dehydrate the meat, I use my vacuum sealer to get rid of excess air in the packages.

Before leaving Mackenzie, I was not too focused on space and weight, but once Packrat and I hiked together a few times I picked up on a bunch of good ideas to reduce how much weight and amount of stuff I now carry with me in the back country. A smaller pack and less stuff I never use or eat has really helped me as far as pack weight and the daily slog to the next campsite.
