I so need your help today. Dh & Ds are going camping. Friends will be with them and I will join them on Wednesday. LAST year a friend & I cooked as if we were running a field kitchen in Afghanistan and feeding friends and family in huge pots. It was hard work and not quite the fantasy I had dreamed. I over did it. sad
This Year they/I have a small two burner and toaster cooker (v. small)
So MNers,(1) what should I buy from the supermarket today?
What equipment should be taken (and what should I not take)?
What meals are easy-peasy lemon squeezey.
HELP! smile

I always make a huge batch of bolognese the day or two before we go. This gets divided into 2.

Batch 1 goes into the fridge and then is used for spag bol on the first night.

Batch 2 is frozen and then used for mince & rice for the dds and after I have served them I add some chilli powder and kidney beans for chilli con carne for us on night 2.

After that I have to go out and buy.

I do a lot of ratatoille (on its own with rice or pasta) or to serve with steak/sausages/ chicken, whatever.

hmm what else

Lots of rice/pasta/noodles/cous cous in one saucepan and then meat and veg bung it all in with sauce in another pan.

Unadventurous but hot and filling.
