    Going camping with 4 kids - need reheatable make-ahead meals

    Hi - I'm going camping in a few weeks with a 6 year old, 4 year old and 1 year old twins. I need ideas for meals that can be cooked, frozen and then reheated in the microwave.

    Any ideas for incredibly simple lunches would be appreciated too. I am running out of ideas - we can only eat so many sandwiches and macaroni and cheese! icon_razz.gif

    I don't want to have to mess with a ton of condiments - refridgerator space is limited and the meals should be very kid-friendly.

    Thanks so much in advance!

    Hi momofallboys!!!!

    Camping sounds like fun.... I wanted to let you know that you should also post your question in our wonderful To Go/Brown Bag/Picnic/Camping/Potluck froum hosted by SusieD and Jellyqueen. There is a lot of great information in that forum about camping...and even camping with kids.

    I am sure you will get a ton of good suggestions! icon_razz.gif

    Are you bring a microwave with you?

    First, heaven help you! Camping w/ four kids 6 AND UNDER??? OH MY.....

    Second, at least you have access to electricity since you will have access to a microwave. Whew!

    Here are a few recipes that I've saved to fix for/with my grandchildren (ages 6, 4, 17 mo and 14 mo):

    LonghornMama's Spaghetti for the Baby
    JustCallMeJulie's Baby Kate's Beefaroni (OAMC) Toddler-Style
    Bec's Easy Hamburger Bake
    TeaPotter's Hamburger Upside Down Pie
    Kaarin's Easy Pizza Pasta Casserole

    Kid-friendly, quick to make recipes:

    QueenOfEverything's English Muffin Pizza - Girl Scout Style
    Kymie's Ham It Up Crescent Rolls
    CharlotteJ's Go Fish Snack
    DollieGyrl's CUTE hot dog on noodles for kids-"Octupus on The Sea"
    CoffeeMom's Cereal Cookies for Babies
    LonghornMama's Creamy Marshmellow Dip from Cooking Light

    My 17 mo old granddaughter loves Tara's Tuna Casserole. I enjoy it also and add green peas to the recipe.

    Hope this helps. Good luck!

    ncmysteryshopper - Thank you so much for the link to the other forum - I don't visit often and didn't even realize there was one for camping - is it possible to move my question there or should I just re-post it?

    Imperia_Magna - we are going with DH's entire family - I'll have lots of help, LOL.

    Yes, there is electricity and I'll have a microwave, a two burner cookstove and an electric griddle. And a coffee-maker! icon_lol.gif

    We aren't going to mess with a grill. I need things very simple.

    I would just post there as well...as you will get great info from both boards icon_biggrin.gif

    It sounds like you are going to have a BLAST!!!!!

    Since you are going to make food up ahead of time you may want to also post in the OAMC forum!!! They have great ideas about make ahead and freezing meals!!!

    We've done a lot of camping and backpacking. For me, camping is easy because you don't have to worry about weight. I make up all sorts of different things (stew, soups, spaghetti sauce, casseroles...... whatever) and use my foodsaver to suck out all the air. You can then just toss the packet into boiling water. Voila! It's better and cheaper than dehydrated.
