Meal plan

Anyone have a meal plan or suggestions on what to cook for an upcoming, 3 day, spring trip? Typically we just bring hotdogs an marshmallows an eat out at the onsite restaurants. The campground were going to will just have electric and water. 2 adults, 3 kids.

Lobster tails are always a hit.

Kids love to use those pocket sandwich makers in campfires.

You can do breakfast, lunch or dinner in those, entrees and dessert.

Breakfast usually consist of either eggs or pancakes with bacon or sausage. Oatmeal if I don't feel like cooking.
Lunch most days is a sandwich of some kind.
Mid-afternoon snack is usually raw vegies or fruit with dip or a nice homemade salsa and chips.
Dinner will be steaks, hamburger or fish along with appropriate sides of baked or grilled potatoes along with another vegetable or two and salad.
If there is a particularly good local restaurant close by I may go there for either lunch or dinner one day.

Since you have electric you could take a slow cooker and put in a roast, add some chopped up potatoes and veggies for a great meal with little work.

Another choice is make a pan of lasagna or baked ziti cover the pan with aluminum foil to take with you and just put it in the oven to finish cooking for your meal, very little work to prepare while camping. Just make sure the pan will fit in the oven of your trailer first.

We enjoy cooking with the "DUTCH OVEN". We like everything in it from pizzas to beans and greens. To bake pizza and biscuits I use a rack inside the Dutch oven that came with a pressure cooker. It keeps the breads from burning on the bottom. If cooking messy things like lasagna then I use a liner either made from foil or throw away foil pan from the $ Tree. As I make casseroles at home I usually make an extra and freeze for the next camping trip. $ Tree has some disposable foil pans with foil Lids that work great. The grandchildren really enjoy making their own pizzas. I find the Dutch oven very entertaining, and when else does everyone so willing to help. Good luck.

Happy cooking and camping,
Jeanie

I've been suffering from some health problems lately that have had to eliminate most of the traditional foods we would bring with us when we would camp....hotdogs, burgers, etc. This year we will probably be doing a lot more with veggies, lean chicken or turkey, etc. I've been trying some little combos of say chicken, onions, peppers, etc. wrapped in foil on the grill here at home. So far, they have come out pretty good.

I've been cooking in our 1963 Ovelander that is, um, not quite done and therefore has no propane system. A good old Coleman stove and a collection of cast iron has been really fun!
Biscuits, eggs and bacon...baked potatoes with steak....jambalaya...stuffed bell peppers

The biscuits were the toughest until I found a round griddle that fit on top of a skillet. After preheating both, I flop in the canned biscuits with some butter and flip it every few minutes.

Jeanie, do you have a photo or a link to your Dutch Oven?

If you look in the Stella's Kitchen sub-forum, you will find a link to Byron's Dutch Oven Cooking. Lots of great recipes, ideas and information.

I've tried to copy it here. http://papadutch.home.comcast.net/du...es.htm#Recipes

TravelBird, this is my set up: on the alum table is a lid off a big barrel from the Co-op Feed store with a charcoal starter chimney. The lid is just a redneck idea to keep the ashes in place and makes clean-up a little neater. I have two Dutch ovens. A # 10 from Lodge and # 12 of some other brand. Inside the 10 is the rack out of a pressure cooker. Then on the far left is a piece of duck work that I use if it is windy or very cold. This gives me better control of the temp. With the Lodge I got "CAMP DUTCH OVEN COOKING" cookbook. It was very helpful if the beginning. It has a chart of how to place the coals for even heat. Placing more coals on top, for even heat. Hope this helps. I'm not sure I know how to attach the photos. Lets hope!
Enjoy,
Jeanie
