I try and bring fresh veggies on my trips to add to my meals, onions, carrots, zuccini, cabbage keep well. I saute them and add to what I'm having.

yep do all that , I save up the last pickings of my asparagus for a couple of meals ( great by itself or in pasta with cream sauce and prosciutto)

Good eats is part of our camping experience. We bring fresh eggs, (will last about a week if not too hot), cured sausage, vacuum packed bacon, vacuum packed ham, canned chicken, salmon in foil envolopes, whole powdered milk, butter (again, will last a week if not too hot) and lot more. One of the best books I have read is "The Back Country Kitchen" by Teresa Marrone.

the biddies are workin' hard on the eggs, I slice my own bacon, but feel it may be (or should) be a criminal act to bring precooked fish to Quetico.

just tried this one in our jetBoil last weekend..from jetboil recipe page...its high in the chemical dept but sometime you need a flavor boost...1 package of ramen noodles crushed cooked and drained, then add seasoning pkt, the 1 handful of doritos (don't read the label) and a few slim jim meat sticks sliced. stir and eat.

Coot 2-3 servings worth of angel hair pasta, drain.
Penne Alfredo with smoked salmon|
Posted by: kayamedic on Jun-25-13 10:46 AM (EST)
Cook penne and make creamy alfredo sauce from packet. Add smoked salmon, some parmesan ( I do carry fresh) and rehydrated peas.
Posted by: richardp on Jun-25-13 5:22 PM (EST)
Instead of salmon you can add some cooked fresh bacon for an awesome pasta carbonara.

Now someone's speaking my language, trip's over but we had some great meals: ribeye steak with caper tarragon cream sauce, linguine with fresh asparagus,prosciutto and peppers,2 meals of fresh walleye, spaghetti, bacon and eggs for breakfast most days- great weather,great trip -Except for the trashed up campsite on Darky( Quetico).... really! poop on top of ground near campsite, cig butts everywhere, and a spent propane can. We left it in better shape.

I get stove top dressing and portion it out. I add dry gravy from the readily available packets. To this I add chunk chicken from a foil packet and some dried cranberies. I started using it while hiking, it is light weight and all I need do is heat up some water in a jet boil and pour it into the freezer bag I store the portioned food in. No need for dishes, and unlike Mountain House I dont need an extra long spoon to get it out of the bag.

I do pretty much the same for the "thanksgiving dinner", but also add instant mashed potatoes to the stuffing mix, about 50-50. Great flavor and extremely satisfying, it will keep you going for a long time.

I always make the sauce and dehydrate the finished sauce. Puttanesca is my favorite tomato sauce, try dehydrating it my way, it's much easier (plus, I would end up eating all the olives before they got into the sauce).

If you are into rice (like my family) Goya and Carolina mike some nice rice and beans meals good for 2 adults. Add some canned chicken and you have an awesome meal. They do need to simmer for about 20 minutes or so.

DO Chicken Stuff|
Posted by: Beaverjack on Sep-04-13 9:03 PM (EST)
When I take a dutch oven, I'll bring a frozen rear half of a yard bird. Toss some rice, dried tomatos, chopped onions, some dried beans and some salt/adobo/cajun spice and the right amount of water (this takes experimentation, but you can start 1:1 and rehydrate your beans and tomatos first). Lay the quarters on top and put coals under and on top of the oven. If using pine, be sure to have a blazing fire going for back up coals. About an hour and a half later you'll have a fine meal. If the water is just right, you'll get some browned crusty rice along the edges. Keep the coals going on top to brown the chicken skin.

I like real food. We will be paddling the Sacramento River, CA in two weeks and fishing for king salmon. It is good over a fire.

Barilla and Dececco make a 3 cheese and cheese/spinach tortellini that does not need to be refrigerated. It is very light and compact (almost like freeze dried). It does need to boil for 10 minutes in a lot of water but no more than regular pasta. Add some olive oil and onions and mushrooms and you are good to go. Adding a pouch/can meat or fish and you have extra calories.

Certainly one of the best and most appreciated camp cooking skills is toe learn how to bake bread at camp - especially by campfire.
