We usually take a curry, chilli or bolognaise that we made at home then froze. It keeps the coolbox cool for first day then on second eve we just reheat it & boil some rice or pasta

Pancakes the american way for breakfast with sausages and syrup. I usually buy the ready made pancakes but have made with a shake and serve batter mix. We use tins of curry or chicken supreme with ready cooked rice or fresh pasta. We also barbeque, and I cook jacket potatoes at home then warm up in the hot coals.

okay will win no prizes for nutrition, but our favourite is a couple of tins of baked beans with sausages, with smash potato and grated cheese. And a box of cadburys roses grin

Job done.

Those packets of fresh tortellini with a tin of tomatoes and some herbs (dried or some campsites have a herb garden). Cheap, easy and quick! Risotto or any kind of pasta dish that only needs one pot. Frittatas are cheap and easy too.

Toast and beans. Pasta and sauce (jar that is). Scrambled egg or boiled. Risotto, macaroni and cheese (use carnation tinned cream and grated cheese for the sauce).

Or caravanning??

I need ideas, but not keen on using lots of dried chemical-filled products :-)
