boil water, make wonderful food

ok,,,half the time i spend cooking is just for the fun of cooking,,,,but sometimes we are just hungry after a long day and want food soon. so this stuff is what i reach for,,,what about you?

zataran's,,,,pretty much anything in a zataran box...add meat or something and dinner is ready.

those pouched rice or noodle mixes. just boil them .

waffles,,, much like bacon,,,,waffles are always good.

hormel chicken stew, with bisquick dumplings.

or hormel beef stew with bisquick dumplings.


P.S. no microwave for us.

Hi John,
We like canned stew, or chunky soup with Idahoan instant potatoes (only need water).

boil water, make wonderful food.

For the past 30 years my wife has been just using "seal-a-meal" and then freezing meals. Eggs & Sausages for breakfast,... just boil water with the pouch inside. The nice part was the frozen pouches worked as ice in the cooler to keep other items cold, and the boiled water after meals was used for cleaning dishes or kids & us. We carried this way of life over from our tenting days and use it in our 13' Scamp.
Happy Trails To You.

Just new to trailering and camping and thought one of the things we would invest in is a mini rice cooker. Everything goes with rice, right? We ended up using it for warming soup, cooking eggs in the shell, Kraft dinner and many other simple meals. We currently need to have sahore power (CPAP) so almost always have power for overnights. Since we have an exterior plug, on those hot days, it sits on a stool beside the trailer. Probably would work heating pouches David's wife makes :-)

My favoritest easy quick meal is some spaghetti (partial to whole wheat) tossed with garlic sauteed in olive oil, some parmesan and hot sauce dumped on top. It does require three cooking items: a pot to boil the pasta, a pan for cooking up the garlic and olive oil, and a colander. But I do get a lot of use out of them.

I always have a box or two of zataran's to add some sausage to as well as a package of Udon noodles - easy to make a fast simple stir fry using what ever veggies I have and a little meat.

My newest easy camping gadget if I have power is a small George Foreman grill - very easy to use to make grilled cheesed sandwiches or quickly cook meat fast without having to dig out & set up the BQ and way easier to clean.

Can precook pasta and save the boiling of water and the strainer.

Bear Creek dried soups . Just add water or milk and heat . Not homemade but quick , easy to make , light weight, taste pretty good, and store well . Yes they do contain a lot of sodium but we don't eat them every day.

I guess I should have said "you can precook" pasta. For church spaghetti dinners we boil spaghetti until it is just shy of al dente, put it in a colander sitting in ice water to stop the cooking, drain it well, put it in a bag that has had a little olive oil squished around in it, and then we drizzle just a little on the spaghetti to keep it from sticking. We make lots of bags of it, and chill it. When it is time for the dinner, put the sauce in the roaster or pot, heat it, stir in the pasta, put a lid on it and let the pastas heat up, stirring a couple times, and there you have a pasta dinner with just one pot, no boiling water, not strainer. You can save a little of the starchy pasta water and take it with you for the bottom of the pot and to pour over the pasta if need be.

When making it at camp, you can use pasta of choice and even sprinkle with cheese and let it melt. You can layer the pasta and sauce with a bechemel sauce or cheeses you like in lasagna and heat. A big skillet with a lid (can even use foil) works well. I put a little extra water in the bottom so I don't have to worry about burning and it helps steam the other ingredients to get them all hot.

Can also be done in a crock pot. Works really well in a crockpot and you can use a liner, not pot to wash. Parboiling the pasta just saves boiling the water and draining.

You can can totally prepared foods to take with you, so you know what is in it and it doesn't need to be kept cold. Think tomato soup, southwestern veggie soup, meat sauce for pasta, bean soups, chili, beef in wine sauce, stew meat and stew veggies all ready to put in one pot and thicken, chicken to mix with jars of other veggies for chicken stew. Canned potatoes fry up fast and easy for breakfasts, can be mashed or buttered for supper and added to casseroles.

If it is canned and you don't use it, it is still ready and good for the next trip. You don't have to worry about keeping so much stuff cold or frozen.

When there is a REALLY good sale on thick cut bacon, I even can that. It cooks up quickly and I have it if I want it, but don't have to worry about it staying cold.
