Simple, simply delicious

I keep it pretty simple when we're on the road. I always have a large container of salad prepared, either pasta, potato or three bean. So for lunch it's salad and either a sandwich or guacamole and chips for lunch. Sometimes we stop at a restaurant. Then for dinner, my favorite is smoked salmon with cream cheese and onion on an onion bagel. Wickedly good! :wub I always start a trip with a pound of smoked salmon in the freezer, it travels well and thaws quickly. I get it at Trader Joes for $10/lb, and that makes 6 to 8 lox & bagel sandwiches. Or sometimes we just BBQ hamburgers.

And we always use paper plates so there is very little clean up.

Keeping it simple (where're camping!)

Canned chicken (Swanson) - make chicken salad (can do it in the dark or romantic 12-volt) with bread and the little jar of mayo from home and Utz potato chips (best chips in the world). The further we get from home the less likely we will find Utz - furthest South we found them is Cape Hatteras - what a shock seeing the Utz truck from Hanover Pennsylvania at the Hatteras IGA! Doesn't matter if we have hook-ups or not or whether to bother with them - dinner is ready in less than 5 minutes - paper plates only (we're camping!) And any leftovers from home refrigerator that can be eaten cold.

(Non food news flash)
Carol - three falcon chicks have hatched in Hamilton - what a lovely sight!!

Chicks (off topic, I know)

Hi Ronnie,

Yes, I'm hooked on that site so I've seen the Peregrine chicks. They are sure growing fast. Another nesting site I like is the Resplendent Quetzal in the Monteverde Rainforest in Costa Rica. Two chicks just fledged there. http://www.cloudforestalive.org/tour/qcam/

Food and Chicks, too

http://www.dep.state.pa.us/dep/falcon/

Carol - thanks for the link! fantastic!! I've got the Raptor thing pretty bad! The 4 chicks in Harrisburg PA are flying this week, too - so exciting!

BACK TO FOOD!
If we get to where we are going and it's still daylight or whatever, then I pull out the grill - portable kind with removeable legs - charcoal - and cook whatever I brought from home - chops, chicken, shrimp - whatever - salad. Nothing too fancy - WE ARE CAMPING.
We were in PA (Lake Erie area) last summer and because we have this adorable Casita with a kitchen! I decided I would make a real lunch - Hot dogs and Macaroni & Cheese. We stopped at a National Park that used to have camping, but no longer did. It was open for motocross and snowmobiles. The camp spots were roped off (seeded to wildlife) It was hot, so we pulled out the awning for the dogs and I proceeded to cook my pasta. People driving by would yell out "NO CAMPING ALLOWED" and such like that. It was 12:30pm! Anyway - the Ranger soon shows up and says "NO CAMPING ALLOWED" and I said - I'm just making lunch and it's hot, the dogs need some shade! "OK, BUT I'M GOING TO CHECK BACK IN A LITTLE WHILE." Sheesh - We ate our wonderful hot lunch but people continued to give us ugly looks and make comments while driving by, kicking up dust. They certainly weren't the usual friendly camping types we always meet.

Road Food

Sardines, crackers, jack cheese , sliced tomatoes and red wine are great when dry camping.

Too bad. They probably have many who try to stay over, but your the one that got picked on. and to think the park is for our enjoyment. yeah, right. NOT. :wak. I'm sure there was a prettier place down the road just waiting for you.

On-the-road food

We love a cold pasta salad too. I take fresh minced garlic and onion with basil, olive oil and vinegar. I mix it with corkscrew pasta - really easy to eat and holds up well to the mixing. Then to make it a meal I add either homemade grilled chicken or a box of Tyson or Louis Rich fajita or southwest flavor chicken. I sometimes add fresh veggies such as celery, peppers, tomatoes, corn, broccoli, etc. Combined with a side dish of fruits and you have a really easy and tasty meal.

For breakfast I make my own biscuit sandwiches. I bake bacon and sausage patties, drain and pat off the grease with lots of paper towells and put them into baked Grands refrigerator bicuits. We like to add cheese but I do that when I reheat them since the biscuit and the meat take different amounts of time to reheat.

We try to find as many farmers markets or local specialty shops as possible to get fresh fruits and veggies and meats and cheeses. If we cook we prefer one pan type meals. I take Ziploc bags of my homemade spagetti sauces with uncooked pasta, boxed macaroni and cheese which we add ham, salmon, tuna or veggies into, beef stew, or Italian beef. The beef can be made into sandwiches, quesadillas or shredded onto a bowl of salad greens. I sometimes make pizza from the spagetti sauce and English muffins. And there are always bags of crunchy raw veggies and crackers for a quick and healthy snack.

Hi, Debbie. :wave Several good ideas there. I, too, love pasta, hot or cold. Uncooked it's lightweight (unlike canned goods) and keeps a long time. Perfect for a dinner at camp, except the boiling takes a few minutes and a significant amount of water. (When camping I skimp on the amount of water, which sometimes means it sticks together. But hey, we're camping; it's my idea of roughing it!)

:laugh

Anyway, Debbie, welcome to the board. We're glad you found us, especially if/since you like talking about food!

:banana

That sounds good and quick. I'm assuming that tortelline is a pasta? I hate being such a food nincompoop.
