Heavy Duty Eggs and Rice--
i don't really cook on canoe trips--no pizza or deep fried fish.
a one pot rice and something or a Mac and Cheese with a MRE rib or chicken pack is about it.bannock as a filler and thats just a biscuit fried in peanut oil..above is one of my two breakfasts,the other is pancakes made with waffle mix--panwaffles??
the egg and rice is one half a Wakefield egg mix pack with about half a cup of Minute Rice..i put dry onion and tomato in with the rice while it's covered.a good slug of peanut oil and it all go's in the pan--the rice fills out the egg to carry you thru to lunch and the tomato and onion give the egg mix some flavor..

It didn't seem right for a backcountry fine cuisine contest to have come this far without something-on-a-stick, so I am delighted to oblige with "Lake Agnes Fish-On-A-Stick". Oh yes – he ate it – mumbled something about “a little salt & garlic would go a long way”.

Yes, that is charcoal under the kabobs. We bring in a small (very small) bag to use for our first night's supper. The first day we sometimes get to camp rather late in the afternoon and this way we don't have to try and find firewood before we can prepare supper. Some years, finding dry wood can also be a problem.

Boppa - what are you using for a table? Looks like two pieces of varnished 1/4" ply hinged together. What do you rest it on and how do you keep it from folding up?
 
12/29/2008 12:42PM
BigZig,
The table is made from two pieces of 1/4" luan which I sanded to under 3/16 and varnished, put ribbon hinge on. It is kept from folding while in use by two small pin latches on the other side. I put it on a Coleman table stand where I use two small SS hose clamps on two legs to adjust to uneven ground. It has been a cherished item whenever portaging is not major.

If thinking of making one consider how you will transport it. I took the width of our canoe and the height of our packs into account. I portage it with two pieces of parachute cord attached to two D-rings on outside of pack.

Others on site here have similar tables and many have drilled out holes to lower weight even further.

If any questions ask away.
Boppa

The winner of the December photo contest is Mooseplums! A tough month to vote especially on an empty stomach.
