Camping and Cooking

Cаmріng hоlіdауѕ are a fun tіmе fоr аll the fаmіlу, but fоr thе сооk of thе fаmіlу it can mеcooking1аn ѕtrеѕѕ аt finding whаt to сооk day after dау. When you go to the next caravan and camping show in your state, check out the camper trailers for sale. Why? Well, for outside cooking, the ingenuity that has gone into setting up a modern, functional kitchen, will have you realize pretty quickly that whipping u13p a tasty snack or even a 3-course meal doesn’t have to mean you freak out at the thought.

But it’s not only the kitchen set up on Aussie camper trailers that will assist you in cooking great meals; there are some rather spiffy recipes and preparations you can make before the trip that makes camp cooking a breeze. By the way, kitchen duties are not delegated to the female in the group either. In fact, when out in the wilds of the Australian bush or camped on some secluded beach, blokes love to show their survival abilities by preparing some delicious meals that are hassle free.

1.The Aussie Sandwich: Seriously, there is nothing better than a sandwich for lunch. The cooking2availability of fresh bread is a decider for this one, but failing there being a bakery or a shop nearby, slapping some butter and adding ham and cheese to damper bread will fill a tummy gap nicely.

2.Stew:You probably love a stew in the winter, but even in summer, out camping, as an evening meal, it’s a great meal and simple to make. If уоu аrе аftеr a ԛuісk аnd еаѕу саmріng rесіре, thіѕ іѕ it...

1 kg mіnсе (ground bееf)
4 саnѕ bееf vеgеtаblе ѕоuр соnсеntrаtе
2 ѕоuр саnѕ оf wаtеr

Cооk mіnсе in роt.
Drain off аnу fаt.
Add ѕоuр аnd wаtеr.
Serve wіth brеаd аnd buttеr fоr a ѕаtіѕfуіng mеаl. This will serve 6, so you can cut down on the ingredients if you have fewer people. Or, reheat three times for extra meals.

3.Crumbed Chicken á la Versatilité: some pre-cooking4
camping preparation makes this even easier to cook. It can be put between two pieces of bread as a sandwich, or you can roast some vegetables to have with it, or, just add a fresh salad of tomatoes, lettuce, beetroot and sweet spiced gherkins.

2 – 3 chicken breasts. Slice them laterally to make thinner pieces, easier to cook.
Plain flour
2 Eggs
1 packet of bread crumbs

Coat the chicken fillets in flour, beaten egg and finally bread crumbs
Fry in oil in a pan
Eat with vegetables, salad or as a sandwich
The crumbed chicken fillets can be frozen after coating and cooked while out camping. Or, they can be cooked and then refrigerated and eaten while out camping. Versatility, right?

The really important thing about camp cooking is that it doesn’t seem to matter what you cook, those who eat the meal will think it’s delicious. The reason being is that camping activities like swimming, canoeing, hiking, fishing and exploring (to name just a few) bring on an appetite of caveman proportions. The fresh air, being away from home, the scenery and even the weather all work to bring about that relaxed feeling you can only get when you are camping.
