We used to enjoy exploring local restaurants while traveling, but unfortunately my wife developed several food allergies a few years ago. Almost all restaurants are now off limits for us.

My wife is a Registered Dietitian, and a habitual planner. Our meals are always planned and usually similar to what we eat at home, but with an emphasis on quick/easy with minimal cleanup...especially if not camping with full hookups. We usually use the slow cooker/crock pot once or twice during a trip. Come back from a day of fun, and dinner is already done! She also likes to make "foil packs" before we head out from home (foil meal is similar to a kabob, but without a stick and wrapped/cooked in foil). Pull from the freezer and throw on the grill...yum! And the last idea I have to wife loves bacon (me not so much), we found a bacon cooker for the microwave at does a fine job of cooking bacon and is relatively easy to clean up.

All depends on the time we check in. Lots of variables. Anywhere from picking up something Ready to Eat, to leftovers in the nuker, to burgers on the grill. 1st night is usually quick grub night, just like last morning is quick breakfast morning.

Almost all of our meals are grilled!
Or made on the grill!

On check in day we always have hobo dinners. Some type of meat (hamburger paddy, sausage paddy, smoked sausage,pork chops or chicken) veggies and sliced onion. Layer and wrap in aluminum foil and put on the grill, 1/2 hour per side. We always make these at home so there is very little work at the camp site. Leaving tomorrow for a few days and look forward to my hobo dinner.

We got tired of restaurants when we traveled by flying or motorcycle. So I cook the same kind of thing we eat when home. As mentioned by others, we do cook in the fire ring when available using lump charcoal, because the wood in these parts in not like the oak in Wisconsin. The real exception to the not eating out is when we go back to Wisconsin because they cannot make a really good pizza to save there souls here in New Mexico. (Now the pizza thing os only my opinion, it's what I grew up with and that always tastes better)

I cheat. I have freeze-dried foodstuffs (Wise Foods) for really quick meals....just boil water, add to envelope, and
The rest of the time, I use my combo grill for just about everything. I also have both an electric skillet and a crock pot. Anything that I would make at home, I can make while camping.

We put food is seal a meal vacuum bags and just heat them in boiling water. Also my wife makes hobo packs a meal in foil that either I throw in the fire or on the grill and it's ready. I like the seal a meal being it comes out just as fine as the original. Talk about easy clean up...

One thing I haven't seen here is "Omelettes in a Bag". Great, easy way to make Omelettes. We camp with friends a lot and everyone brings some fixings to the table and we all build our own. Great Breakfast!
