I know of folks that pack poucho liners in their luggage for times they're flying and have to stay in motels. Hey, bed bugs happen!

Prep it

We do 5 to 8 week stretches. What I find really helpful are menu planning. I have them on my laptop, I have 3 weeks worth. B-L-D-S, for 5 days. I plan one day for "pot-luck" left overs & one day out. I include meals in the gallon sized bags. As far as dry goods go, make them multi-task. (Bisquik is a life saver.) But again, planning the menu you can portion out your ingredients, bag 'em & tag 'em. Old fashioned index cards work great & can be placed in the bag as well. Plus use them as a grocery list. Good luck! (PS jiffy cake mixes are great too...you can make a quick "pan-cake", in a skillet.)

More good things to think about - thank you.

I tend to be a 'make from scratch' person and have never used Bisquik. Does it make things like scones and biscuits? I've never heard of jiffy cake mixes - I'll look at the store!

Carl where are you getting that from? All the parmalat Ive ever used is cow milk...its treated in a way and sealed to not need refrigeration... the silk products are not parmalat.

I saw some info about a soy line but don't think its in the US.

I agree about soy... although I had a coconut milk that was pretty tasty!

I posted on my Facebook page a photo of a carrot cake my wife made tonight in our Saratoga Jack Thermal Cooker...it is the first time she had tried doing something other than what one would normally create in an electric slow-cooker. The cake turned out fantastic!!! That means we can now easily cook and bake while camping off grid with just a simple fire/burner.

The link to the FB post is here.

And you can read/see more about the Saratoga Jacks Thermal Cookers at their website.

I work a 12 hour night shift and when I get home I don't want to cook anything. For a fast meal there is Hormel complete meals, Valveeta cheese bowls, apple cinnamon oatmeal, soup, fruit and a whole selection of items that need no refrigeration and can be popped in a microwave. In a pinch these could be packed.
