The rice will be a main dish for me. I don't care much for rice in the first place, but when I do eat it, I prefer the rices other than minute. I will bring enough to add to soup and also for breakfast or a main meal. I can add all sorts of things to the rice. I'm not going anywhere once in camp, so if it sits for 10 minutes, so be it. I usually have a quick Cup o Soup before meals and just after I set up my tent. It increases my appetite and relaxes me before the chores of getting water,and all that.
Yes, I can be tenacious. : )
