We're high activity campers

We don't have much time for cooking. And my camping club outlawed hamburgers and hot dogs. One thing I do is make spagetti sauce at home and freeze it. It keeps the beer cold and give the campers fridge a head start. When the sauce thaws I just have to boil spagetti. I do the same with cajun rice dishes.

Ever notice how you can ALWAYS eat popcorn...even when you are full?

Like going to a movie and ordering a large tub of popcorn right after dinner...

Food for thought and eating!

While I am capable of making them myself, part of the fun of traveling for me is to sample the local specialties. Some of my favorites include:
  • Southern Wisconsin -- Cornish Pasty -- a shortbread crust filled with potato slices, ground beef, and onions -- baked until golden brown and served with a generous helping of home-made beef stock gravey.
  • Quad Cities Iowa/Illinois -- Maid Rite Sandwiches -- probably the inspiration for the "Loose Meat" sandwiches on the Roseanne Barr Show --well done, crumbled hamburger with a special sauce served moist on a large bun.
  • Central Illinois -- Horseshoe Sandwiches -- the meat featured can be hamburger, ham, turkey, or chicken -- the meat is served open-faced on Texas Toast or a hamburger bun -- topped with golden brown french fries -- smothered in rich sharp cheddar cheese sauce.
  • Western Kansas -- Bierochs -- a Volga German pocket sandwich treat -- home-made whole-wheat bread pockets filled with well-browned ground beef seasoned with onions and rinsed-and-wrung-out saur kraut -- a taste treat even for those who do not care for saur kraut.
  • Southern Illinois -- Dixie or Shemwell's Pork Bar-B-Que -- home-hickor-smoked pork shoulder with a home-made sauce that must have some horse-raddish for heat.
  • Sikeston, MO -- Lamberts' Cafe -- Home of Throwed Rolls -- one of my favorites since my first encounter with some of Ol' Norm's throwed rolls in 1970.
  • San Francisco Bay Area -- Pepper Mill -- their bread bowl chili can't be beat.
  • Colorado Springs -- steak dinner at the Village Inn tavern. I didn't have the opportunity to eat there during my last trip, but it is among my must stops when time permits.
  • Carbondale, IL -- steak dinner at the Giant City State Park Lodge (actually in Makanda, IL).
  • Aurora, KY -- Ken Lake State Park Lodge -- their Sunday Brunch is absolutely fabulous.
  • Lakewood, CO -- Casa Bonita -- excellent Mexican specialties with memorable entertainment.
  • St. Louis or Chicago metro areas -- White Castle -- the mini hamburgers are unforgettable.

We always seem to eat pretty well while out in the coach. Lots of BBQing. But I think my favorite is that one morning, each trip, when we break out a bottle of good champagne. It's usually acompanied with smoked salmon, eggs, and either english muffins or bagels. MMMM. Too good! Ron

Ron, you gotta try the tuna and jam sandwich. You'll never go back to the smoked salmon, eggs and whatever, trust me . Of course I might have to try your menu item.

Tuna and jam huh? Hmm, I must have missed that one. Oh well, you're an airstream and a wagon guy. You gotta know something that most people don't. I'll give it a shot.

outlawed hot dogs and hamburgers? I wonder if they thought it was done too much. But in actuality we hardly ever have hotdogs and hamburgers on the grill and I love them too, sure is easy.

We do however bring out a hot dog or two and hold them over the fire, or left over steak or pork or whatever meat we have and then dip in sauces. A couple of campfire foods for us is 1. taking bicuit mix or prepared biscuit dough and wraping spirally around a stick and baking over the open fire, then dip in garlic and butter or red sauce or cinnemon and sugar and 2. mozzarella cheese sticks and warming them very carefully over the fire or they will fall in, mmmm.

mr and or ms or mr and ms together,

great advice... especially if boondocking... the whole multitasking thing speaks to me... homemade sauce keeping the beers cold...

if budget is not a problem, i really like the "Spotted Owl" dish i've developed over the years... quick, easy, and the kids just love it. if budget is a problem, hunt by night and cook by day... multitasking... so bauxite...

recipe posted below.

This is a really bad thread to read when you are sleepless and instead playing on the computer in the middle of the night. Now I've got to go downstairs and have a snack which is going to kill my diet.
