Wow, this is a long thread! Great yummy topic, obviously. We prepare a bit of food at home (two of us empty nesters) but mainly the prep work like cleaning fruit/veggies and packaging things well. We do the chopping on site so things stay fresher. We stopped worry about the 'white' addition to the meals a few years ago...so dont fuss much with pasta, rice, potatoes, bread...ya, I know. All the tasty stuff!! When we do have pasta, it's a treat. This makes for very easy meals to just decide on a main meat or veg and add a salad. I treat ourselves using pre-cleaned store-bought $ salads, adding avocado, red peppers, cherry tomatoes and favourite dressing. We use an outside stove but also use our BBQ ... often as an oven using the gauge to regulate the temp. (Ive debated bringing the Instapot on long trips, but trying to keep the gear to a minimum we decided to make ribs and similar foods at home first.) For the meat, we recently tried buying frozen raw fish fillets, I think it was cod but not the breaded kind. That worked great to saute in frying pan or bake in BBQ on foil, with lemon, veg and salad; and I was surprised it stayed well in the original sealed packaging as it defrosted in the fridge overnight. It kept for another day until we got around to trying it. Of course any fresh raw fish from market makes for a nice dinner per above (better yet, catch your own!). The other meats are typically steak, burgers, ribs, pork tenderloin roasted in BBQ or stir-fried. One of our chicken dishes from home cooks well on the BBQ and that is taking chicken thighs, shake them with pancake mix (if you dont travel with flour), lots of spices to taste...put in re-usable foil tray lined with foil paper (for easy cleaning) on melted butter and oil, and bake in BBQ around 425 degrees for 20-30mins, turning after crisp on each side. They store well once cooked for leftovers. Breakfast...always pre-bake bacon at home (400 for 15 mins on foil line tray) and freeze in ziplock so just pull out what we need each time. It last a long time when pre-cooked and saves the messy grease cleanup if using pork. We also like to use turkey bacon which is less messy and healthier. The makes great blueberry pancakes at least every third morning, with bacon and if in season, rhubarb compote from home. We bring frozen crumpets and usually just toast them on frying pan with butter, and have almond butter/ peanut butter and jam...or make a McMuffin. Otherwise we just bring home-made granola and/or make oatmeal with yoghurt/blueberries or banana. We bring regular eggs and also a tetra-pak of egg whites. You can add egg whites to the oatmeal for more protein...just stir it in when the water is first boiling to prevent the cooked whites from showing. Also add ground almonds. With this for breakfast, I rarely need much by lunchtime. Lunches...we started using multi-grain wraps for our hotdogs last year, which saves trying to keep buns fresh, and yes it's healthier. The wraps last in the cooler the whole trip and can be used for so many other dishes. We just heat the wraps for a few secs on BBQ when dogs are ready then add mustard/ketchup and wrap. We treat ourselves to nice quality hot dogs and have them a couple times a week. Otherwise lunches are mostly similar to kitphantom with humous, fruit/veg, cheese, crackers...soup on cool days...maybe a scrambled egg burrito with sausage. I notice on long trips we always have to first restock on maple syrup (we Canadians are fussy here on quality ) and butter, so I bring extra now from home. Must be all those pancake mornings. That's our story....enjoy your camping meals.
