Heh! I don't mind repeats - I do it often. I usually try new meals on dayhikes - on backpack trips I take what I know sits well and fuels me...so yeah, I have done repeats before. :-) Yum!
I think it is so cool you do it for the guys in your group! I just got done packing my food for an upcoming trip. Do to the miles and the cold weather my food is very, very simple this trip and I am eating the same breakfast, lunch and snacks every day. I need to be thinking "miles, miles, miles" not about my food. I know these items work.
And when we get done I am porking out after Dicentra picks me and our buddy Hoosierdaddy up ;-)
