Yeah, a beer.

Sometimes too many can make ones legs wobbly.

A wobbly pop is anything that goes psssst when you pop the cap and you wobble after you've imbibed.

Our "go-to" meal starts with salad of any kind at the bottom of a bowl topped with any kind of nuts, chopped/sliced/diced veggies, thinly sliced fruit and grilled meat of any kind. Make a quick vinaigrette with good olive oil and vinegar infused with some additional flavor and you've got volume, roughage, sweet, sour, soft, crunchy, savory goodness. And since I do the dishes, I'm happy to be looking at only two bowls, two forks, one knife and a cutting board to wash up.

We do this a lot too, usually with a chicken breast, or chunk of salmon. In the short time it takes me to grill the meat, Lisa has all the rest of the salad put together. Tasty, healthy, and quick, and less dishes is always a good thing.

Little know fact, but when the Mayflower landed at Plymouth (they intended to go further south), they stayed in Plymouth because they were running out of beer, which was an extremely important means of hydration. Water would not keep on long ocean voyages (they didn't use chlorine in those days to disinfect water). So apparently the "Pilgrims" believed beer to be the perfect food too!

I have a freezer full of prepared meals made already. Chili, bean soup, beef stew, chicken corn soup all frozen in left over chinese food plastic quarts. When packing BlackJack I throw several into the refer to help chill it down and for our meals while camping. Some warm corn bread in the oven will go well with just about anything. Of course there are eggs, pancakes and scrapple for breakfast. Two meals a day is all this cook does. Anything else you are on your own.

My wife & I have been using a "seal-a-meal" for all the years that we've camped. Leftovers go into the bag & get sealed and frozen at home. The bags start the trip as "extra ice" for the cooler (now fridge) and then get dropped into boiling water. No pots to clean up.
