Couple pics from this summer, gots to use the purcell grill, works well.


We we're in a hurry at the grocery store, grabbed what ever and booked. Panic'd when we rode thru town and had'nt seen a liquor store Luckily the next town had one.
Odd combo of food but it worked.

Where I live, it's called a "Croque Monsieur", i.e. grilled-cheeze with bologna or sliced ham.

40+ years as a Chef (glorified Cook meaning...) and now a bit over 5 years full time on the road camping I still don't eat out. Try not to. Of course time is on my side, I make that time to cook and have converted many recipes to "One-Pan". We travel without refrigeration and using the local produce staying away from all processed food meaning cans. Of course that does not work all the time! I do buy meat if I see a butcher, they are always happy to give me some ice to carry on. Eggs last many days, Parmesan, feta, many other ingredients if stored smartly in shade. We also are never in a part of the Country where it is over 80 degrees! Try not to anyhow...
I end up posting some of those "One-Pan" recipes lately on my site, with the tools needed, the "Why and How", trying to share how to eat well as I see some do here from the photos!
It can be done... utilizing that time also to maybe come back to Camp a bit early and socialize with Friends, or in Homes also cooking with Friends.



Spirit and I being on a hack might mean we can carry more, we do, but the food aspect has always been the same also when on two wheels many Moons ago!



An easy Breakfast or could be dinner. It can look good... and taste good all at the same time.



A Creamed Spinach with ginger and garlic topped with bacon...

I believe in templates which should give anyone the ability to adapt with what is available. Pasta and Rice if outing for just a couple days can be made ahead mixed with a tablespoon of olive oil and stored. Many possibilities...

Be well, Ara and Spirit

Beemerchef, thanks so much for your new gear review and recipes on your site. very helpful. ahhh the luxury of a sidecar


couple tools i use a lot for cooking: a 10"x10" titanium grill handed down from my great uncle and my family's camping trips. a hinged grill I found in Oakland Chinatown for $4. next to them is a Sven saw, whose hollow rectangular handle(red) fits over the grill and griddle handles and gives me distance from the fire for handling. the griddle also makes an easy to level platform for the stove and a clean surface for food prep. My cutting board, pieces of foil, and other flat stuff are sandwiched in there . The sven saw also is used as a bike prop for lifting the rear tire up for lubing the chain or repairs. oh yeah, it even cuts wood.

a word from experience...if stuff like this doesn't ride in a bag, like on top of your rear rack under a bag, make sure it's tethered.

That looks handy. I love items that serve multiple uses. I want that grill

Thats pretty cool. Thanks for the link.

Thats the best looking camp food I've ever seen. Sounds better than Canned beans and $1 hotdogs or Freeez Dried mush.

Since reading this thread (and another one here about cooking food on the engine/exhaust) I look at items now at the grocery store with this question: "Would this work out well being cooked/prepared and eaten on the road?" Collecting ideas and recipes for upcoming trips!

Ara, I thank you for the reminder and your recipes. I have seen your blog in the past and I have it opened in another tab, looking over the recipes as I type this. Been awhile since I have visited your blog. Catching up now. You and Spirit are an inspiration to me!

EDIT: Signed up and I will look over the recipes "as templates" to try out with one or two pans. I travel for work and sometimes book at extended stay hotels with kitchenettes. These will be fun to try out on an electric stove and practice before hitting the road and using camping cooking utensils.
