going camping tomorrow, 2 adults, 2 little ones (oh and I'm pg).

Any meal ideas would be greatly appreciated!

we get Sainsbury's tinned chicken curry (it is very nice!!) and uncle ben's packet rice (it is the sort which you usually microwave but can be cooked on a hob) and serve withg pitta or nan bread. 5 minutes!

corn beef hash (in a frying pan with chopped onion, tomatoes, peppers, baked beans and if I have been organised, some cooked potatoes which I have bought with us.)

Ommelettes are quick and easy and one usually does two little children to share - put cheese, onion, ham, sweetcorn in. Serve with salad or carrot sticks, cucumber sicks, pepper slices.

I get bored with pasta and sauce

we tend to live on pig products when camping blush Sausages, bacon, etc.

Very easy to do a yummy saudsage casserole, cook sausages, bung on tin chopped toms, sweetcorn, mushrooms, peppers, etc etc, dash of suagr and salt, simmer 5 mins, serve with bread.

And I succombed to Deilia Style tinned mince (from M&S) at the weekend and made a spag bol in minutes.

Disposable BBQ, boil new pots in the pan on top of the BBQ, kebabs/steak etc from butchers with green salad.

Filled pasta - £2.50 for 2 packs in Sainsburys, so for meat free filling and is fine in coolbag for couple of days. Only takes 2 mins to boil and is very filling. I added some of that stir in dolmio stuff but fine plain
