Short trip meal ideas, no electric

Doing an overnighter- not sure what I want to plan for the two meals. Dinner will be during the warm part of the day, probably cooling off as I finish. Just me.. So I could bring something cold for dinner, sandwich or salad, or could cook.

Breakfast in the morning will be chilly and I know I'll fire up the stove for coffee so might as well cook something.

Just looking for one-serving ideas that are easy to clean up after but maybe a little more interesting than a sandwich for dinner and cereal for breakfast.

Best would be something for dinner that I could reheat for breakfast... I could fire up the Dutch oven for dinner and then reheat on the stove.

Suggestions?

It sounds like you'd like to bring something with you suitable for breakfast and dinner. A suggestion that I like that's easy to carry, can be warmed if you like in a covered frying pan though is good cold, is Quiche with a side of fruit like cantaloupe..

I was thinking about making something like that at night and eating it for breakfast, too, make just enough for the two meals. I have an "impossible pie" recipe that would do well in the Dutch oven. I also thought about doing apple fritters for breakfast..

I thought about doing that, Gina, but it isn't much easier that way (other than the leftovers stay here) and it can be fun to cook something. (Plus on some longer trips that wouldn't be an option so I'm thinking ahead to a future cross-country trip.)

Bobbie,

The long road trips are a whole different situation in terms of what you bring for food and just about everything else can be different, for example we don't bring flannel sheets to FL but do to Newfoundland.

When we travel we tend to food items that we may have difficulty finding on the road that we particularly like, for example we like pancakes made with almond flour.

Short term meals, make stuff before you leave on a trip and seal in a bag, then get a pot of boiling water and boil the whole bag. Clean up is easy you already have hot water after your meal. Cooked frozen food before a trip keeps a long time in a ice chest or fridge. If plans change during your trip and find a fun place to grab a bite the prepped meal doesn't go to waste.

Anyone read the book "Manifold Destiny" about cooking on the engine while you drive. Long out of print and hard to find at a reasonable price, but a few years ago our son found me a copy. Recipes like cod supreme, halibut with fennel, veal scallopine, eggs-on cheese pie, provolone potatoes, and a bunch of others. Even tells how many miles to drive for cook time. Pull into camp and your meal is ready. EDIT; just looked on ebay, several copies for $15 or less, a few years ago they were much higher priced.

I have been doing weekends for agility trials, and do a little one-pot cooking and boil water for coffee. One meal is often cooking spaghetti and then adding the pre-made sauce. I have also fallen in love with the Bear Creek soups/pasta. I divide them up into single servings, boil water, add the mix and let them sit. Mornings are often instant oatmeal if it is cold, or homemade granola, fruit, and yoghurt.

There are lots of breakfast options as well for one-pot cooking. I am more interested in eating than cooking, and am usually just me and the dog, so I keep it very simple.

I ended up deciding on a sort-of quiche that can be dinner and breakfast, both. (I've tried it before so know I like it.) I thought of a few other options, too, such as corned beef hash for dinner and with an egg for breakfast, chili for dinner and with a cheese omelet for breakfast. All stuff I could have on hand for a longer trip.

how we have been doing it for years now. Lately we also carry some MRE's (meals ready to eat) that are freeze dried I think. We pick these up at "Bass Pro Shop" but are available many places that have a camping or hiking department.

Bob, easier to find the book than to get anywhere near the manifold in a late-model vehicle! Covered with layers of plumbing and plastic now.

Our favorite item to carry is Copper River smoked salmon in Mylar packets. Easily keeps a year without refrigeration, can store it anywhere. We get gifted with some every year.

And near impossible to work on too. But I still have a 76 and a 86 vehicle so I can cook on the engine. Any newer vehicle may be good for warming a muffin.
