I have a single burner propane stove (a Coleman single burner) and no cooler or fridge. Two knives, 3 spoons and 1 fork. A spatula.
I hate to wash dishes. Much of my cooking decisions are predicated upon how many dishes I have to deal with. Embarrassing, but true.
I use cloth towels (from the car department in Walmart) and Dr Bronner’s soap on the stainless steel plates and bowls. The plates and bowls are very easy to clean, are lightweight, are darn near indestructible. They can be used as lids, scoops, fans and for measurements.
Meat and Veggies
Spicy or regular V-8 is a whole serving of vegetables. And doesn’t require cleaning a chopping board or knife. V-8 instead of water in ramen or rice or soup is a nice treat. Spam is meat that doesn’t need refrigeration. Wide varieties of beans come in cans. Avocados and bananas and apples come in their own packaging . Sardines and tuna come in animal proof packaging. Flour tortillas last for a very long time. A six pack of eggs last about a week without refrigeration … if its not freezing or sweltering outside.
Notice the veggies (V-8) and the fruit (peaches) and the fiber and crackers. And no dishes.
P-nut butter is fatty and full of protein. With banana or apple it is filling and yummy. Mix p-nut butter with siracha and coat a tortilla for weird take on a spam taco.
This is the newest easy treat. Tasty Bites are very tasty. They come in 6 or 7 different veggie selections. Just put the package in boiling water for a few minutes and eat out of the package. Only with a spoon to clean!
When the local food markets are open I sometimes grab veggies and feast … even if it involves dishes.
