+1 for beer on very short trips. Beer on music festivals and in the outdoors is the best place for beer.
A good spaghetti bolognese is nice too. Make it a couple of days before, let it simmer for 4+hours, let it sit in the fridge for 24hours, boil it again, this time just for dehydrating it as much as you bother. Easy to hydrate on the trail. Start with the sauce. When it's just boiling, put the pot in a pot cozy. Boil water in another pot. Add quick boiling pasta. When it's ready to eat, serve it, and this is when you take the real Italian parmesan cheese and cut thin slices to drizzle on top. Now grap that beer you brought... Enjoy. Finish with a cup of Starbucks Colombia Via coffee, a cask strength Glenfarclas 105 Whisky, and a piece of 85% dark chocolate. Read, Sleep. Zzzz....
Edit: use freezer bags when you're just brining one stove.
