Congrats on the 30 years, Mike. I think she likes you.
Menu side dishes...Mary Jane's Farm makes a pretty good FD mac/alfredo, if you like that sort of pasta. The single person package is really 1-1/2 servings, which might be perfect as a side dish for 2.
Red beans and rice: MH makes a FD white rice, and Harmony House sells dehydrated red beans. I buy these in bulk, then repackage them into 1-cup portions, which I vacuum seal. They remain good for a long time, stored in my cool basement. I am more than happy to PIF you a package of each, which would be plenty for you to do your home experiment, and then take what you need on your trip. If interested, send me an e-mail at my home (email@example.com).
