Need advice...

Discussion in 'Food Forum' started by dogcaller, Oct 17, 2006.

  1. Going out with buddies for a long overdue 3-day quail/predator hunt. We're each bringing food for one day. Does anyone have any particularly good and easy to prepare meals/recipes to suggest? We'll be in a travel trailer, so there's a small stove, etc. I'm no chef but I know there has to be some easy to fix but killer meals...

    Thanks!!

    (I'll post pics of the hunt when I get back!)

    make it at home or just open cans at the trailer.

    Frozen ground beef will keep in a cooler. Thaw and cook in the same pan.

    Freeze it in zip-loc bags. Flatten it so that it thaws faster.

    Pasta boil salted water use store bought sauce as easy as it gets.

    Lethal posted a lot of good ideas. If you're looking for something w/ a little more range, google backpacking recipe's.

    The emphasis here is on a good mix of protein, carbs, fats, and sugars to keep you going on the trail (or in the field in your case).

    What I usually do is go to the local store and head down the freeze-dried aisle. Grab a box of red beans n rice, black beans n rice, jambalaya, pretty much anything in the 7 oz pre-cooked weight range who's directions read:

    Combine water and mix. boil x minutes. eat. This makes it easy to cook over a camp stove.

    If you head out to this area often, it might be worth investing in a food-dehydrator. You can make pasta or rice based dishes at home and dehydrate them. All you have to do is moisten them w/ boiling water and you've got a great meal. Very light and doesn't need refridgeration.

    ETA: W/ a dehydrator you can also make jerky, dried fruit, trail mix, blah blah blah. Sure you've heard this before.
