quick and easy ice house foods.

53 posts in this topic

my wife like to premake stuff, freeze it and put it in the oven while fishing. I like to make stuff, i bring a grill, ect.. but with no running water, it makes any kinda clean up a pain. one of my fun faves is omlete in a bag, add your likes into a freezer bag and dipp into a simmer boil till done and enjoy. you guys have any neat and nifty icehouse dishes..

One of my favorites is to do a small venison roast, couple onions, potatoes, carrots right on the stove top in a big fry pan with a tight fitting lid. Have the vegies cut up before hand and in a ziplock, takes less than five minutes to throw the roast in, dump the vegies around it, add some water too, and either salt and pepper or an onion soup mix. Cook about an hour, add more liquid if necessary, and you have a meat and potato supper. I like to do plenty of potatoes and the leftovers get a few eggs tossed over them the next morning, in the same pan.  Quick, simple, and good.  Don't overcook your venison!!

Another quick and easy that I'll do for an evening fishing expedition is venison ring sausage, cut in 2-3 inch chunks, then split and casing peeled off, in a ziplock bag. Throw in frying pan, add a little water, supper is ready in 10-15 minutes. Couple slices of bread in a bag, you have venison sausage sandwiches and beer for supper. If you really want to get fancy you can butter the bread beforehand!!! :)

 

As you can see, I like your 'quick and easy foods' that was in the post heading!!!

Since I mainly fish on a one day at a time trip I also stick to easy meals.  For me it's home smoked sausage on a bun topped with my German kraut and bacon or sometimes just ketchup and mustard.  Take my Colman stove along, pot, and some water and I'm in buisness.  good luck.

you can make some pretty tasty burritos or Chiptotle like items and reheat quick.  Take very little space and are really good.

Since I'm pretty much a run and gun sled and porty guy. I try to find foods that are on the go and will mix well with fish smell and slime on my hands.  Smoked fish, jerky, cheese sticks, stuff like that works out well most of the time! :P

Ice fishing usually comes along just in-time to eat some of that great venison from the year's hunt.  I usually just bring a medium saucepan, scoop up some snow (not the yellow stuff) and melt it down. Then boil the sausage, throw it on a cheap bun with some mustard.  Kind of like plain old hot dog at a baseball game, there's something about ice fishing that makes simple and basic taste better.

Been pretty sick....flu turned into pneumonia. Finally went to Doc this am. Lotsa drugs and antibiotics are supposed to kick in in a few days. 

Did a solid for a guy that turned out to be big rep for Thermos Co. Sent me a huge box of every kind they make...I kid you not.  Ssshhh. Use the Thermos Food Jar for my soup. Love the built in storage and little spoon that clips in place.

Well, Del, you've done it again. :whistle: I know Smurfo, Boar's breath, and me, are made in the USA, and I bet right here in Minnysoda. Some of the best vacuum bottles are Nissan, made in Japan. Stanley, the last of the USA bottles, moved to China production in 2002. There, now that's all settled and out of the way. So, has was your meat from SL Foods? :P

I don't get pissy; I get even. There woulda been an ad in the the big three newspapers, with his phone number, saying six purebred black labs and six field trial setter pups, all free. Call after midnite only,and ask for Smurfy. First caller also gets a free Holland and Holland Royal double barrel shotgun". :/

Don't need no shotgun.  Meat was good, I would buy again when I am on that end of town.   Couldn't figure out smurf making vacuum bottles.  Didn't sound asian on here. 

I have some stanley and nissan bottles.  Both quarts and those cute skinny pints, so I didn't have to buy coffee out of the machine.  Haven't used them much recently.

Those old Stanley's got myself and co-workers thru many a 12 hr nite shift.....

Glad ya liked the meat. I made a meat loaf last week, and 1 lb was from another store, and the other lb from SL Foods, both were frozen 6 months ago. You  could really smell and see the difference, and in texture, too.

    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
    • Well there are a lot of ways to do it.   I'm going to bolt it down through the counter top, using the bolt holes for the leg levels. The idea of using straps and d rigs would look like dump and Be pretty pointless........it would be has much work having to ratchet strap the thing every time I was going to move vs setting it down on the floor. 
    • Yes it is a very good round.
