Quick meals or snacks?

I was out yesterday for a couple hours. Cold and foggy in Charleston. Got hungry and wanting for something warm. Fired up stove and broke into Ramen noodle supply. Worked out fine but left me wondering. What do others keep on boats for quick meals or snacks while day sailing? Needs to be non-perishable. Thanks.

Re: Quick meals or snacks?

Ramen noodles and Cup of Noodles are always go to staples on board for me when I want something quick and hot. I do like the packet of noodles because I can substitute my own broth at times instead of using the salty packets that come with it. But the prepackage cups come in handy when underway. I often add a dollop of crunchy peanut butter to make a poor mans quick Pad Thai. Low sodium V8 juice also comes in handy when spiced up with some Worcester and Chipolte pepper hot sauce. It is a nice pick me up. I sometimes heat it up for a nice warm broth type drink on cooler days
On summer days I find a few pieces of fruit kept handy on the cockpit table and a bag of trial mix can usually carry me through until I get to an anchorage and make a proper meal.

I thought ramen noodles could only be made in a microwave in a dorm room.

Thick slice of last nights roast beef with a hunk of cheddar on some coarse bread with a dollop of mustard. 30 seconds to make and back on deck.

Re: Quick meals or snacks?

I will admit, hard to do as a chef, but we always have some canned soup on board. I prefer Progresso of different varieties, try to find the low sodium ones. A hot clam chowder is pretty tastu on a chilly day.

Other must have items would include...
Nutella
Crackers
Salami and other dried meats.
Canned beans and sauces can make for quick meal as well, I like some of the Indian Sauces...just add vegetables or meat and or seafood

Dried beans and rice are great, but both take a while to cook which also uses a lot of fuel, why its good to have the canned.

Canned fish suck as tuna or salmon, sardines, etc are good protien sources and easily mixed or eaten as is.

Olives, nuts, and similar are always on board.

Dont forget the rum and wine!

Cheers,
Shawn

This is what came to mind to me. They are pretty expensive, but are really good. It is close to restaurant quality. There are other brands as well, but the Indian market really seems to have the sealed in a bag/no refrigeration required packaging down pat. Not even in the same class as ramen, though ramen can be really good, but making it good normally involves going to a noodle bar. Biggest issue with ramen is you never know how old it is, and in the thin packages it can really pick up some funky odors.
