What do you think of this camping menu?

  • 1

I am planning a short weekend trip with 10 of my friends in a week. This is the menu that I've planned for the event.

Restrictions:
1 Vegetarian, 2 kids
no open campfire, we will be cooking on stoves
all are training for some kind of endurance sport (or aspire to), so we need a balanced diet
Island trip, so everything is carried in two coolers and trying to keep the weight light and portable.
Hoping to be on the fancier side, since this is not officially backpacking with these ladies..

L- Bags of salad + pre-roasted mushrooms + lentils + vinaigrette + bread + fruit
D- Thai curry paste + coconut milk + firm tofu + eggplant + quoina + stir fried bamboo and green beans
B- Soft polenta (or faster alternative) + fried/poached egg + sun dried tomato + chopped olive and parsley salad
L- BYO Sandwich~
D- Lamb chops marinated, frozen and sealed in foodsaver bags + Israeli couscous salad
B- Miso soup, sliced braised pork belly, somen, mushrooms and kelp..

do you think lamb is too greasy done in a pan? or do you think i should opt for a pork chops or fish??
i have not done polenta outdoors... do you have a alternative to put under with this eggy b-fast?

  1. Fyi, firm polenta with veggie chili on top has long been a mainstay of our camping trips.
