So, my sister (let’s call her Lois) and I are leaving in a few days for two weeks of camping on lovely Madeline Island. I am incredibly excited, because we used to vacation there as a family when we were young, and neither of us have been back for over a decade, and it’s also been a while since we’ve done any camping. I’m looking for suggestions of good meals for two adults- all my experience is with feeding big crowds of girl scouts on 3-4 night trips. The length of out trip is more of an issue than anything else, since while there are grocery stores on the island, as I recall the quality and selection of fresh foods is iffy. We will have a propane cookstove (one of those 2-burner coleman things) and a fire pit, and pans aren’t a problem (since we have a whole truck to fill up and I pack light anyway).
The one thing I’m interested in trying out is tofu, but I’m not quite sure how. Neither of us are vegetarians, though I used to be, but we both really like the taste of tofu and it freezes well. I will probably just pan-fry some of it with vegetables just like at home, but I wonder if anything special, campout-like can be done?
So: share your favorite camping recipes (special award for the best foil dinner and for anything that can be cooked on a stick!) and fun stories too (but recipes first- this is CS, not IMHO )
