Have you ever had slices of steamed japanese squash or boiled whole baby potatoes on a picnic? That was the fare on a recent snorkeling trip. We kayaked 10 minutes to a nearby island, and saw some fish and lots of interesting seaweed while snorkeling. Then when it was time to eat, wemwere treated to these warm delicious vegetables. Brilliant! Portable, easy to eat, warm, no waste, no worries about spoiled food.
Then on a hike a couple days ago, big thick slices of tomatoes that had been earlier sprinkled with a dash of sugar and salt, and fresh cucumber. Wonderful complement to the dried squid and nuts that I packed.
