So I did the taco thing. I fire roasted some red bell peppers, finely shredded lettuce, organic vine ripened tomatoes, fresh grilled corn (sided off the Cob) shredded cheese, ground beef, and finely diced Persian cucumbers.

One is still getting his adult teeth in, so he has no chompers. Lol. The other one chose only two toppings ; meat and corn.

I'm seriously thinking just using tostidos scoops! (And it moves more and more to the walking tacos)

Of you have power and a slow cooker, just put some onions and chicken breast in the slow cooker, and 1/2 jar of salsa, and half a pack of taco seasonong. Come back at dinner time shread the chicken and tacos.

You reminded me of something my folks used to do when I was younger, not exclusively a camping thing, but a I don't want to cook so here you go type of thing. Just cheese, meat, and crackers. Usually Ritz, salami/pepperoni/ham or whatever was on hand, and a couple different kinds of sliced cheese, Colby, pepper jack, or whatever. Add in some olives and dates, and maybe a can of smoked oysters and that was it. I think there's a fancy name for what this is, I don't remember what that is though. This would be an easy/quick lunch.

I believe the word you're looking for is Charcuterie or Charcuterie Board. I call it Cheese and Crackers.

We always take a selection of cheese, summer sausage and sometimes a kilbasa. I like to add peanut butter to the mix. We normally have a traditional breakfast that we tend to eat late in the morning. If we don't have leftovers from the night before for lunch, we'll break out the cheese and crackers to hold us over till supper, which is almost always something on the grill.

We don't usually camp with power. Have a Jackery 1000 and can solar charge it. It'll heat meals premade/frozen in the instant pot. Favorite meal in it is lining the pot with ribs, pouring over some bar-b-q sauce and filling center with whole potatoes. By the time we'd set up camp we had sour cream and chive baked potatoes and ribs to eat!

One longer trip we took our Camp Chef pizza oven fitting on our camp chef stove and it was the best. Made homemade pizzas, pineapple upsidedown cake, brownies, cookies, biscuits, heated hot dogs, heated burritos, Dutch baby pancake in cast iron skillet for breakfast . . .

Want to try our pie irons on our propane little fire pit since a lot of time we camp without fires.

Our first trip out this year was to windy, Windy, WINDY Wyoming!!! We moved camps every day trying to find a fishing place with less wind! So were moving about without opening up our aframe. Luckily had most food in cooler and I'd brought pressure canned meals - pot roast in a jar, chicken ala king with instant rice, but we mostly ate the taco meat, and plain ground beef with onion jars, as meal with tortillas or as sandwiches. Brought wine and canned margaritas.

My Webber kettle grill? Sure! I just take the legs off and put the grill and legs in a large contractor bag and tie it off With some string.
Usually have my Weber Smoke'n Joe with me. Works great for 4 people :)

And does well in combination with foil packs in the fire. Can grill up meat on Smoke'n Joe and veggies in the fire.
