Great Advice Poppysmum! I love eating non-breakfast foods for breakfast. I do have a question mabe someone on this thread can answer. Does store bought Miso paste go bad? It's been in the refridgerator for longer than I care to admit, but seems ok, but there is not expire date on the tub. Thanks!
Like Sweets suggested, I could agree on the hard, dried sausage thing, like pepperoni and such. Also if you have a food dehydrator you can make your own dried fruit (I love dried pineapple), or beef jerky. If you are back packing, cans can get heavy so ramen, and dried soup or instant mashed potatos (the flakes) are probably more fun for you to carry. Have a great trip!
I have sort of a "niche" item that I get a lot of sales on...the Firefly hat pin (Firefly is a now canceled sci-fi show by Joss Whedon, of Buffy fame). I know most of those sales come from a Firefly board that I post on where I have my shop in my sig. Sometimes they buy other items too, but mostly just the hat pins.
I would reccomend jumping on theT, and taking the red line ($1.25 fare) to Davis Square. That's where Magpie is, along with lots of other cool stores and resturants ( All different typs of food, an independent movie house, a super cool comic shop, which is right near Magpie, ice cream, independent coffee shops). It's a really fun area to hang out in.
