Backpacking Year 2 Part 2

(the below mentioned) Salsa Leather!!! I think it kind of looks like lava on a plate.
and finally, in the most unorganized of manners, here is everything we ate on the trip.
Here is a complete menu:

Day 1:
 Dinner: Chili (see above post)
              Trail Bread (see recipe below)
              Drinks ( our drink bag included: Gatorade Packets, 2 kinds of caffeine free tea bags, Maté, Coffee, Apple Cider, and Hot Chocolate)

Day 2:
 Breakfast: Instant Oatmeal w/ Dried Fruit and Sugar
                  Boulder Lake Breakfast Bars from Lipsmackin' Backpackin'
Lunch: Bagels with PB and Trail Mix
Dinner: Jamaican Red Beans and Rice (We bought a pre made mix from REI, [GASP!] but it was basically instant rice, beans, and seasoning. Easy!)
             Trail Bread

Day 3:
Breakfast: Instant Grits
                 Breakfast Bars
Lunch: Trail Bread/GORP/Breakfast Bars (everything left over)

The Trail Bread was a recipe from Lipsmackin' Backpackin' that was basically 2 kinds of flour, molasses, agave nectar, vegetable oil, and water. It packed really well though! I was impressed.
If you look, last year I made the Boulder Lake Breakfast Bars, and the only problem we had with them was that they didn't stay together, they were crumbly. This year I added 3 tbsp of flax seed to the liquid in the recipe and it kept them together great. I'm definitely doing that every time I make them now.
