Preparing Meals

9 posts in this topic

Just thought I would tell you guys what we do. We prepare all our meals, cook them, and then we put them into food saver bags. NOw when you need a meal all you have to do is warm them up by boiling water or nuking them. We do spagetti(?) the noodle,meal loaf , sloppy joes, the ski is the limit. I hope this helps some of you .

I've been doing the same thing. Here is a link to a thread I posted last year about it:

Zera hassle camping food

Tell me some more about the details of what you are cooking. My wife made a really good chicken casserole that we sealed and froze. Took it up to Voyageurs last year and the guys went nuts over it.

When we were through, just toss the bags and your done. I hate doing dishes when I could be having fun smile

I don't know what kind of camping you're doing if you are nuking food smile

For backcountry camping I like making chili and soups, then dehydrating them. Just add water and cook for a while and you got yourself a nice meal!

Camp stove is all I have so we do the boiling water thing to heat the packets.

I went camping with my son's Scout Troop a few years ago to Valleyfair. Some of the parents pre-cooked Mac N Cheese, and sealed in Freezer bags. At the campsite, we just heated water in a turkey-fryer and dropped the bags in until they were heated through.

We also did eggs that way. Sandwich size freezer bags, put in two eggs, cheese, ham, onions, mushrooms, whatever. Seal it up, mush it around to mix, drop in boiling water. You can put it in a tortilla shell and add some salsa.

Very easy stuff.

for me part of camping is firing up the grill for burgers, dogs, brats, steaks, chops, ribs...... I can have "prepared" food at home all week. when were in the camper, all the cooking is done outside on the grill or over the fire.

there are exceptions of course, we have two young kids, so we do make a box or 2 of mac and cheese to make life easier!!

I'm with ya Ryan. One of my favorite meals to cook outside while camping is eggs, bacon and fried potatoes. Not sure why, but somehow it tastes better than if I fix it at home in the kitchen.

One of the great things about camping is cooking outdoors, especially that fresh catch.

I love cooking a great meal by the lake over the campfire. Tastes great and it is fun.

    • I apologize if that came out wrong. The idea might very well be the best route to go. It's just that over the past 25 years or so I have seen many attempts to save a dollar that cost a buck and a half to do lol.    Here are my two cents. If you have a slab and you want to pour on top of it while keeping the same footprint that sounds pretty doable and could probably save some money if you don't have to change drain lines, run water, heat runs, electrical etc into the slab.   If you intend to tie into the existing slab and run zones of pex across the joint and have the new and old floors end up at the same elevation it still can be done. Some contractors will not want to mess with tying into and raising the elevation of the slabs and will prefer to start from scratch especially if you as the homeowner want them to warranty the finished product.  The critical thing would be to use enough rebar drilled into the old slab and have enough compaction and sufficient footings to make sure the slabs stay where they are without settling. That would make all kinds of problems with the pex.    Hopefully that response came across better.
    • It'll be interesting to see if the team plays a little harder in front of a different goalie. 
    • Hawg, I'm with you on this one !
    • Check and see if you have a video output on you device. You may be able to record to a digital device.
    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
