Don't ask me - I was never a boy scout!

A rotisserie chicken lends itself to many meals. I have also done the trick of hamburger base with veggies and plopped in the freezer.

I use Bertolli marinara to make everything from pizza to American goulash. Canned tuna, of course, canned beans. I've even been known to toss extras in to Ramen.

Favorite ramen recipe:
4 packages of ramen, cooked, drained and chilled (throw away the flavor packets)
1 cup sliced green onions, green and white parts
1 large red pepper, seeded and diced
2 cups baby bok choy, sliced thin

Dressing:
4 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon light olive oil
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons minced ginger root
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons sesame seeds

Mix all together and serve chilled.

Not to mention I don't think my stove has a heat through setting... would that be 2 or higher?
If you decide to make this, I'll rewrite the recipe without options just for you.

Time for a new stove.

Carrying canned goods on a camping trip was not ideal but back in the early 60's there weren't a lot of options. We didd't have the array of freeze-dried options available today and prepping a lot of fresh veggies just didn't happen.

Our troop actually had a reputation for good food. At jamborees, scouts from other troops would gather around our campfires drooling over our food.

I never liked S'mores. Something about the hot, melted combination of marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers that didn't appeal. I think it was because the marshmallows always got a little burned and I don't like that flavor in my food.

They were too sweet, even when I was a kid, I didn't like the too sweet stuff. I'd rather have another hotdog or burger.

I just ate the chocolate. No interest in graham crackers back in the day.

AFAIC, graham crackers are for pie crusts.
