US food, the packet way

Next week in Las Vegas we'll be making a detour to a Whole Foods Market or a Trader Joe's along the way to pick up some travelling essentials. I prefer the biscuits on a roll (the cardboard tube refigerated kind) but as the roll tends to pop under hold pressure I pick up the biscuit mix, which also makes up instant pancakes and fritters pretty well. And we'll be after another box of cornbread mix as last night's cornbread in a skillet was very nice. No jalapenos in the house so I flung in some spring onion and frozen corn (as the dehydrated corn kernels weren't immediately obvious). Mix like muffins - ie as little as possible - and bake for 25 minutes at 180; yum. We had it with a Waitrose roast chicken which makes its own gravy in the bag you carry it home it; if not, the box suggests maple syrup to drizzle. Bacon bits would be nice too.
