Hope you have lots of fun. The lake should just *be* that way. I know you likely already left, but have fun anyway :-)

leaving today, we put it off for a few days... it's cold and rainy, will leave the boat home. The food is loaded:
Bean Salad: canned green and yellow beans, butter beans, Italian dressing
Italian Pasta salad: whole grain penne, julienned provolone, salami, pepperoni, onion, green peppers, celery, dressed with a viniagrette w/parmesan, fennel, crushed red pepper
Basic coleslaw: cabbage, carrots, onion, miracle whip, celery seed, vinegar, sugar
Have steaks, burgers, brats, boneless turkey breast, sandwich meat, cheese; will do whole grain pancakes with nuts, greek yogurt, juice, b'fast burritos for mornings.
Have potatoes, beans, brown rice, wild rice on hand for more sides. Made quick pickled beets and carrots (sepaprate jars). chips, dip, crackers, spread, nuts, cookies, semolina poundcake for munchies. Brought some stuff to make a shrimp/pasta salad later in the week (if needed).
Oh yeah, bough a new small dutch oven so may try a peach cobbler and cornbread in that.
It's not even 40 degrees... brrrrrrr, glad the camper has a good heater!!!

Second night Coca Cola Chicken in the Dutch Oven with Brown Rice and Campfire Cakes. Breakfast will be eggs or Oatmeal with lots of Coffee.

Sounds to me Syd' your right on target...your perishable concious in
the use of dry foods and canned stuff...my camping trips are usually
associated with hunting/fishing and I prepare in a similar way...
subject to do beans in cast iron over open fire, etc...everything is good
in the outdoors....frying bacon is big on my list...I like your speggetti
idea...generally doing ground venison instead of beef in stuff like chili
is big with me and spegetti would work well...flour & cornmeal bread
are good too.........the ice cream?,,I dunno....I like doing cast pot
cooking like the one in my avatar pic....and carry lots of oil for
frying fresh fish & stuff like that....and I try to pack light...I'd say you'd
get a thumbs-up for your ideas, in my book................................BH51..

Arrow Coffee Can Campfire Ice Cream

BH51, try this one on for size. Great activity for the young uns.

Coffee Can Campfire Ice Cream

2 C half & half
1/2 C sugar
1 T sugar
1 egg, beaten

Additional material needed

1 lb coffee can & lid
3 lb coffee can & lid
crushed ice
rock salt

Add the 1st 4 ingredients in the small (clean) coffee can and add the lid. Place the small can inside the larger coffee can. Add layers of ice and rock salt, then add the lid. If possible try to seal the larger coffee can's lid with duct or electrical tape. Roll the can for approximately 15 minutes, preferably on a flat surface then open and check the smaller can with the ice cream to see if it done. If it is still soft, reseal but drain melted ice and add more rock salt and additional ice and roll, kick or shake for additional ten minutes. Serve and enjoy! Some people add 3 crushed cookies half-way through the prep time for a special treat.

ingredients but I caught you drift...I've heard of it but
never tryed it...thanks for the tip........................BH51..
