  • We usually take some bacon, eggs, and hash browns for breakfast, hamburgers/hot dogs for lunches and dinners, sometimes we take sandwich fixings for one of those meals. We take tons of soda and water, koolaid, etc. to drink. We usually take chips to go with lunch/dinner, and we take some kind of little snack foods for between meals, things like twinkies or cookies. Oh, and of course, the stuff to make smores. Although, we are going camping in a couple of weeks, and we can't have a campfire (severe drought, no fires right now), so we're trying to decide how to do the smores. :(

  • reply to tropicalmama- to do smores you can use graham cookie mini marshmallows a bit of choc syrup (a bit is like less tha a teaspoon) put in a plastic bag and boil for a few minutes. or if you can grill use some foil on the grill (to catch drippings) set thegraham cracker marshmallow and choc. cover and let heat for a few minutes aloow to cool a couple of minutes before eating. if you do the plastic bag version you will need toeat this with a spoon but its still fantastic!! hope this helps

  • I like to make things that you can easily cook using the fire. We keep a fire going pretty much the whole time we are camping,we might let it go during the day but it's right back up as the sun starts setting. For breakfast we usually do instant oatmeal. Very easy to bring a metal pot or kettle & boil some water in the fire. We also like to wrap up some burritos in tin foil, & sit it on the rock near the fire to warm them up. Just keep rotating it & it will warm up in about 10 minutes. You can also wrap up corn, potatoes, or any kind of meat in tin foil (wrapped up VERY tightly so that no juices can escape) and you can dig a hole & stick it in the dirt under the fire or like right next to it where the dirt is still very hot from the fire & it will bake in there. Dig it up in about 20 min, & you have yourself a very easy healthy dinner. You can also mix veggies & meat in there.

  • It's hard to not bring too much food though.....too much food is always better than not enough!

  • Just curious- I assume you keep the food in a cooler and replace the ice?

  • Breakfast: Cereal, muffins, eggs & bacon, etc...
    Lunch: sandwiches, top rahman
    Dinner: Chicken, spaghetti, steak, whatever we want... I pre-marinate meats so there is less stuff to pack
