Right on. After a day on the trail, I really appreciate a hot meal in the evening. I'll carry a little extra weight for the added comfort, especially after having walked all or part of a day in a rainstorm or under a cold cloudy sky. Long live Backpackers Pantry, Mountain House, and Alpine aire.

  On the other hand, commercial backpacker dinners for 1 or 2 have good 
  flavor, calories, and require minimal preparation. Carry a small pot, stove 
  and just heat water and eat from bag. Only clean-up is a spoon and fuel use 
  is minimal. Cost may be a concern. No matter how tired I am, I can handle 
  this minimal effort.
