I am not big fan of spam, but idea is definitely the right one. I used to buy canned meats, they almost look like military supply cans. Then all you need to do is bring veggie or pasta with you and make whatever dish you like, but using canned meat.
Just re-read your post. Car, well, car, the stove. Just bring whatever you would make at home and do it.
But if you do make real fire, Wrap some white/yellow potato in foil, dig a hole in the dirt a little bit dipper than fire it self. Put the potato in the hole cover it with soil start the fire above it. When fire is finished you will have most amazing baked potato ever.

These can be prepped at home and grilled at your campsite. A salad, foil wrapped potatoes roasted in the fire and maybe some grilled corn on the cob.

Don't forget the marshmallows and the hot dogs, kids seem to enjoy cooking things on sticks over an open fire.

For 2 nights, it's easy. Make a couple of meals ahead and freeze them, pack well in a cooler and they will be fine. Back in my kayaking days, we did a week long trip on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho, and each person was in charge of one evening meal. I made a big pot of chili, froze it in Seal-a Meal bags (Ziplock bags would work fine), and when we had it about 5 days into the trip and it was still frozen - had to be taken out of the cooler at noon and set out in the sun on the support raft to thaw. Served with chopped onion, cheese, and tortillas it was good hearty meal. We even had steak about 3 days into the trip.

For those long trips we packed the frozen foods in dry ice, but for two days that wouldn't be necessary. Just a plastic jug or two of frozen water would keep the cooler cold for a two day trip.

PRE COOKED MEATLOAF !! There's nothing like it. That's the one thing I took to start off every camping trip we ever took.With some bread and mayo, it can take you to thru the first night of setting up camp, and even for lunch the next day until you are ready to cook the second night. There's nothing in the wold like meatloaf brought from home on a camping trip.

Have fun!

I can't think of anything to add to the great suggestions that have been posted here, other than how much I miss camping....and fishing....and how everything tastes better cooked and eaten over an open flame in the outdoors! Have fun!

Kayelle, we used to always take precooked and sliced meatloaf on our camping trips! Great with fried eggs in the morning, too.

Ohhh you're so right Cheryl, when life was as simple as a big meatloaf and camping with a young family.

Spike and I were talking tonight about how great meatloaf sandwiches are. There is this sleazy, dirty greasy spoon diner near South Station in Boston. Everyone who worked at KeyBank used to go there for lunch every day. They served the best meals. Pork chops that had a nice rim of fat around the edges. Mashed potatoes with lumps in them, and meatloaf to die for. Cheap! And they had some of the kookiest hippy looking waitresses.

In the Boy Scouts we used to do 30 mile hikes over a weekend. One lunch we had underwood deviled ham on some sliced up french bread, gawd it was good.

Homemade beef stew if you know how to make it. Canned if you don't. What's a camp out without beef stew I ask you?

I always think of the movie Sling Blade when someone mentions potted meat!

It always amazes me the things kids will eat and do when they are out in a situation like your camping trip. It's fun to watch them make a breathless report to an amazed mom when they get back home!
