I am going to talk to you about one of my favorite topics. Human food! Dog food – ehh, take it or leave it, but give me a hamburger and I am in puppy heaven. My Master is a champion when it comes to planning, packing and cooking for a camping trip. The key to success is planning your meals and using the leftovers for another meal.
Here are a few easy multi-use meals:
1.Pack in zip lock bags. Everything packs easier and you can use them over and over again. My Master loves zip lock bags and so do I, they keep my food and my treats fresh and easy to grab.
Before you hit the road, marinate some steak or chicken in a zip lock and pack it for the grill that night at the campsite. Cut up a bunch of veggies – zucchini, carrots, lettuce,- whatever you like and throw them in a zip-lock wrapped in a paper towel to keep them crisp. You can use these veggies all weekend long for salad, side-dish and a yummy scrambled egg. Cook up some pasta – macaroni, penne,- whatever you like best and toss in a bit of olive oil and pack it in a zip lock. You can throw whatever leftover veggies and/or meat in there for a quick and easy pasta salad for lunch or you can heat it up for a side dish for dinner.
2. Bread – pack some good Cibatta rolls. You can warm up for a side with your steak or cut in half and use for sammies. Bring tortillas – always easy to wrap up your scrambled eggs, sandwiches and soft tacos. Steak/chicken can be used as a main dish, a sandwich meat, and a salad topper. Fish can be grilled as a main dish, tacos, and mixed up with some mayo for a great sandwich or salad.
Using the same food items in a different application can help you tremendously and still taste yummy. Stay tuned for more!
