    you could tell there was asparagus in it and whether it was soupy like I prepared it or more like a pasta it was good Lasagna with meat sauce 7 79 Everything in these packages end up kinda like a goulash You can t really expect a slice of lasagna I don t think it would even fully hydrate if it wasn t in bite size pieces Cut green beans 3 69 They tasted mostly like fresh green beans The bit of squeak that fresh beans make was there not like the mush that comes in a can Raspberry Crumble 8 29 This was tasty but I think the chocolate crumble stuff made it taste a little bit like Oreos If that is your thing get after it Of the two deserts we preferred the Apple Crisp Apple Crisp 7 49 Two parts the apple goodness and the granola goodness A comfort food Who wouldn t like some warm apple crisp after a long day in the saddle Breakfast Skillet 7 49 I know why some school cafeterias use instant eggs We didn t bring tortillas but this would be awesome with a little hot sauce and a tortilla to wrap around Biscuits and Gravy 5 99 I ve paid more at a diner for a shittier plate I like B G the biscuits are in bite size pieces and the gravy tastes good Though the dinners pouches were designed as two servings we shared two with a side It was more than enough but to share one wouldn t have been The desserts were in a 4 serving pouch and we shared both of those as well Excessive but we wanted to try them Of course I didn t let any go to waste The breakfasts felt like larger servings though still 2 serving pouches We shared the 2 but couldn t finish all of it There is a fair amount of sodium in the food but goddamn it tastes good I m not much of a stickler for that sort of thing but I m sure a heart doctor would frown on it When it comes down to it these aren t necessarily designed to replace a healthy diet of pizza fresh fruits and vegetables From now on if I m going on a getaway either backpacking bikepacking climbing or some other adventure where weight and space is an issue I m sold on freeze dried food Not having tried other brands I d feel comfortable with Mountain House and the meals that I tried with them They also have some low sodium options I d like to check out If you re heading out for an overnight or a month do yourself a favor and check out what Mountain House has cooking for you Because if you can boil water you can fill the void with a tasty meal Whether you re lazy a shitty cook or just trying to lighten the load throw a couple in

  • Go Means Go! handlebar bag | GO MEANS GO
    just bike riding I made a little inquiry on Twitter as to where I should pick up a bag like that in Seattle I first headed out to Aaron s Bike Repair but they were closed Back I went to the north end and I decided to check out Hub and Bespoke a friendly little boutique in Fremont that is mainly focused on clothing but often has other bicycle related sundries It was there that I came across the Minnehaha quick release handlebar bag Classic it is Black canvas though it looks blue in the photos leather a wooden dowel inside ensuring the bag doesn t fold in on itself when carrying weight The front back and bottom are rigid the two sides being soft There are two small pockets on the front with flaps and two flap less pockets on the side A removable clear vinyl map pocket sits on top and there are D rings to attach the shoulder strap included The main compartment remains closed with a chrome buckle Selling for 80 it is fairly affordable when compared to it s competitors That said there is no coating on the leather and the canvas is uncoated Waterproof it definitely isn t Minnehaha bags are made under the umbrella company Banjo Brothers which is based in Minneapolis MN Both Banjo Brothers bags and Minnehaha bags are made in Southern China The bag is smallish the main compartment being 10 wide 5 5 deep and 7 tall That s 385 cubic inches According to Minnehaha its 400 cubic inches close enough I guess It weighs almost 2 1 2 lbs with the mounting bracket which seems a little heavy for the size though I haven t compared the weight with other bags I would prefer to have a larger bag but racier bikes typically don t make it easy to attach a front rack to support a larger bag mine included They use a Flinger quick release mounting bracket which is both a blessing and a curse Though it s rated to carry 22lbs more than enough I would feel a little uncomfortable riding with that much weight over rutted streets or offroad When riding around town it s pretty nice to have the quick release You can park your bike and with a press of a button off comes the bag The bag s shoulder strap makes it easy to bring with you The downside to this is what you leave behind The bracket that you have attached with four screws and a piece of plastic coated cable is not attractive at all and if you ride much without your handlebar bag it becomes downright ugly to look at Some decaleurs are also a pain in the butt to remove but they are generally more attractive and I wouldn t mind leaving them on the bike as much The Minnehaha handlebar bag sits fairly high higher than most bags that use a decaleur and front rack and making

    related sundries It was there that I came across the Minnehaha quick release handlebar bag Classic it is Black canvas though it looks blue in the photos leather a wooden dowel inside ensuring the bag doesn t fold in on itself when carrying weight The front back and bottom are rigid the two sides being soft There are two small pockets on the front with flaps and two flap less pockets on the side A removable clear vinyl map pocket sits on top and there are D rings to attach the shoulder strap included The main compartment remains closed with a chrome buckle Selling for 80 it is fairly affordable when compared to it s competitors That said there is no coating on the leather and the canvas is uncoated Waterproof it definitely isn t Minnehaha bags are made under the umbrella company Banjo Brothers which is based in Minneapolis MN Both Banjo Brothers bags and Minnehaha bags are made in Southern China The bag is smallish the main compartment being 10 wide 5 5 deep and 7 tall That s 385 cubic inches According to Minnehaha its 400 cubic inches close enough I guess It weighs almost 2 1 2 lbs with the mounting bracket which seems a little heavy for the size though I haven t compared the weight with other bags I would prefer to have a larger bag but racier bikes typically don t make it easy to attach a front rack to support a larger bag mine included They use a Flinger quick release mounting bracket which is both a blessing and a curse Though it s rated to carry 22lbs more than enough I would feel a little uncomfortable riding with that much weight over rutted streets or offroad When riding around town it s pretty nice to have the quick release You can park your bike and with a press of a button off comes the bag The bag s shoulder strap makes it easy to bring with you The downside to this is what you leave behind The bracket that you have attached with four screws and a piece of plastic coated cable is not attractive at all and if you ride much without your handlebar bag it becomes downright ugly to look at Some decaleurs are also a pain in the butt to remove but they are generally more attractive and I wouldn t mind leaving them on the bike as much The Minnehaha handlebar bag sits fairly high higher than most bags that use a decaleur and front rack and making light mounting extremely difficult In fact it may be the biggest downfall to this bag Unless you have a low mount for your light on your fork say you our out of luck The bag stays out of the way of your hands on the bars which is crucial but it would be nice if it mounted lower possibly the top of the bag being level with the bars
