Okay, so I'm going on a 3-day, 2-night hiking trip with a few friends over the 4th of July weekend. We'll be going into the Cascade mountains of the northwest, elevation won't be that high though. We'll try a fire and have a propane burner or two along. I'm not sure what some great options are for cooking at night...last time I bought a can of chili and one of those flash-frozen dinners.

My friend is convinced all he needs is top ramen but I'm thinking this won't be enough for my nutritional (or hunger) needs after a day of hiking. What do you recommend?
