Once camping season starts, I keep the pantry pretty well stocked (I don't seem to have the ant problem (probably because it's so wet around here the tires are always sitting in a puddle - like a built in moat )
Assorted seasonings
tea, splenda, coffee
gin, tonic
powdered milk
gatorade powder
Peanut Butter
a bunch of canned food (soup, tuna, evap milk, etc)
packaged meals like mac-n-cheese, or those 1 box Indian or Thai dinners
Power Bars
Chips and other snack type stuff

I have a special small tupperware container in my fridge that I keep stocked with small jars of mayo, etc - so it's easy to grab and throw into the camper fridge. Then I decide what fruit, vegies to bring.

I try not to keep chocolate in the camper - I did last year for s'mores and they all melted.

A friend came camping with me last fall and commented that I had more food in my camper pantry than she had in her whole house!! (Probably not too far off).

We have quite a lot of staples stocked into our trailer, much of it stored in IKEA plastic storage bins.

The neccesities: those little vaccu-pack ground coffee packets that make one 12-cup pot of coffee (or two somewhat weaker 8-cup pots, which is what we do), coffee filters and powdered Irish Cream coffee creamer (my vice, not Lynne's . . . she takes hers black).

Other stuff:
  • There'e always pasta meal makings. We keep dried cheese tortilini and sphaghetti noodles and (at least) two small tins of pizza sauce to smother the pasta.
  • A couple single-skillet box-meals.
  • Pancake mix.
  • Granola.
  • Various canned goods: soup, some veggies, stewed tomatoes, chili, Spam & tuna (to add to box meals).
  • Single serving rolled oats with rasins, nuts, brown sugar and other oatmeal dopings stored in plastic yogurt cups (Toss into bowl, add one y-cup of water and microwave. Simple. I can do this before coffee.)
  • 10-Minute Brown rice.
  • Couscous.
  • Sun-dried tomatoes and dried mushrooms.
  • Cooking oil.
  • Spices, salt, pepper.
  • Bullion packets.
  • Tea bags.
  • S'more makings.
  • Granola bars.
  • Microwave popcorn.
  • Little restaraunt-size packets of jam and (sometimes) peanut butter.
  • And some other stuff I've forgotten.

Peter and Lynn's kitchen supplies are pretty much the same as ours. The glaring differences (at quick glance):
must have a good quality dark hot chocolate mix
our coffee is a large cannister of dark roast
basmati rice
arborio rice for risotto
lots of dog treats
chocolate (is there a theme here?)

In fact the biggest difference between home and camping is the lack of a freezer for ice cream.
