Camping Foods…

So, next weekend we (Big Monkey, Little Monkey and I) will be going camping together for the first time. We have a camper (I don’t think I ever mentioned that yet!) that we recently purchased, so that we will not be totally roughing it. We will also be going along with some other friends who are regular campers.

I need to come up with a menu for the weekend. We will be needing the following meals: Friday Dinner, Saturday Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, Sunday Breakfast and Lunch. We will also need some snack foods. Little Monkey will have his own menu of course but we will probably try to match some of the items up if we can. We have a small stove in our camper and will also have a fire to cook over at the campsite. This is where I need help. Hopefully some of my readers have been camping (I have before…but not recently and I have never been in charge of meals!). Please send me your suggestions for easy foods to make for all of those meals. I need to get the grocery shopping done this week because we do plan to do most of our prep work on Wednesday before we leave.

If you have any other ideas/suggestions, I could probably use those too! Thanks!

    For at least one breakfast, make muffins ahead of time that you can just take with you. Make cookies and brownies too! And for dinner find one of those foil meals…where you place the meat in the foil with vegetables and then cook it all together in one little packet.

    Chili is easy to make and will feed a crowd. Make it ahead of time in the crockpot, freeze it so it will keep longer in the cooler, and heat it when you are ready to eat. You will need a big pot you can put over the fire because your little camper stove probably won’t do the trick. Serve with cornbread. Don’t forget bowls and spoons. You could also do sloppy joes, same idea, don’t forget the buns. I like Amy’s suggestion of the foil packets, very versatile.

    Foil meals are great for camping meals. Don’t for get a portable grill (much easier than cooking over a fire). Found this to be of interest in describing the different types of camping, especially since you have just purchased a camper. http://www.picnicplacemat.com/Dry-Camping.html
