On my last camping trip in January I literally stood in the kitchen 10 minutes before I left and just grabbed some food.  It was a unique menu to say the least.  I only had to feed myself so I didn’t have to worry about a picky 6yo  :baseballhat:

I had sausage at homes so that is what I took. 

Friday night was Italian sausage on white bread with a slice of cheese.  Cooked on a hot dog stick. 
Breakfast was 3 eggs.
Lunch was another sausage sandwich with some EZ mac
Dinner was going to be sausage again with some pasta but another friend picked up a pizza…..no sausage on it  :dance: 
For a snack I had some cheese and crackers. 

What was your least thought out camping menu?  Have you ever bought your entire menu for the weekend out of the camp store?  What did you have?

We seldom just toss food into the supplies, but we don’t always plan menus either. In the old days, when we ate mostly canned and boxed food for camping, we would just pull out of the supplies, depending on what we felt like eating for supper. As our eating habits have changed, we tend to plan a bit more – though not meal by meal. Now that we have a ‘fridge and freezer, we usually just pack enough food for the trip and pick and choose.
On a few trips, especially when I’ve been camping solo, I’ve been known to buy food meal by meal, either at the store or a snack bar, restaurant. However, that assumes a place close enough to camp to make use of it, such as camping at Grand Canyon (North or South Rim).

Barbara packs the food so we usually take home half of what we bring. She over packs!

Acenorm….That’s what I’m talking about.  1 jar of Peanut butter, 1 loaf of bread, some cereal, and 2 cases of beer  :cheers:

Ours is similar to acenorm’s, a least thought out trip. We have been Memorial Day camping with extended family for about 30 yrs. It all started on Saturday morning of Memorial Day wknd when DH’s cousin called & asked if we wanted to go camping THAT wknd. We were young & spontaneous, so we said sure. The group consisted of 2 bros- in- law, cousins, 2 toddlers, a friend, & us. The plan was for each of us to gather whatever camping gear we owned & food from our kitchen cabinets & then head up the PA Tpk. We met the cousins at one exit, a bro-in-law at another, & another one further up. We drove around several campgrounds up in the Scranton/ Wilkes Barre area & finally found a little place with available sites near Lake Winola.

I don’t remember many specifics about the trip, except for the fact that one tent had no poles, so we kind of hung it from the trees & we had no bread products whatsoever. 4 households, & not one of us brought any bread or rolls, so we did buy them at the camp store.
We had a great time except for the ride home due to the holiday backup at the NE extension tunnel. (There was only one back in the day). Traffic was at a standstill, the cousin’s toddler had a major meltdown, their car was close to overheating, & we were tired & antsy to get home. That is when we decided that the following year we would plan in advance & also choose a location closer to home 🙂
