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!

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.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
