You don't say if this is a hiking trip, or a set up at one location and hang out trip.

One of our best investments has been our electric cooler... so easy to manage meats - we freeze all of the meat and/or pre-prepare it. Our other best investment is a dehydrator... so easy to preserve foods for things like camping! Food in this context is all about how much you like to cook/before during, and being creative.

Foods that we like:

jerky
beanless chili, or stew - made at home and if you put it hot, in hot jars, they will seal enough to stay fresh for a week in the cooler (longer in the fridge)... the same with any other casserole, one pot meals... basically you're making your own canned food... the week before just cook a lot of one pot meals, cook double what you'd normally cook, and fill a jar or two with the left overs. I do this regularly... great for quick meals.
gluten-free sausages (yeah, they're processed, but you can get some with relatively few ingredients and preservatives)
sweet potatoes for baking in the fire
canned/foil packed fish
cutting/marinating steak in thinnish strips in ziplocks (if you use a good acid like apple cider vinegar it will help keep the meat from spoiling), then threading them on a skewer/roasting stick and roasting them like weiners in the fire... OMG!
homemade nut and dried fruit mixes
apples, carrots, celery - they travel really well, and if you get a variety of apples, you don't get tired of them... and all are wonderful dipped in nut butter
hard-cooked eggs (I cook a couple dozen, chill really well, and store in the cooler)
lots of coconut oil
pemmican - I haven't made any yet, but I want to try (recipe link in the link below... let me know if you try it)!
also, if you have a vaccuum sealer, you can prepare individaul portioned meals (fish fillet, veggies, butter, spices), freeze them, and then cook them in boiling water - in 10 minutes you have supper.

I didn't see an existing topic for this so sorry if I am duplicating.

So I have a week long camping trip. I am used to either a short trip where a cooler is good enough or before that I just took canned stuff and Raman. The best stuff I can think of would require an oven which I don't have. So do you guys have any suggestion? whether something simplethat I just missed or something more spiffy all is appreciated.

thanks
