Jim - we too load up with frozen food for the reasons you listed. As we pull frozen food out of the freezer we replace it with the refreezable containers from coolers. Then when we want to go out for a long day away from the trailer we can put one of more those containers in the cooler. Also, our experience has been that keeping the freezer filled helps maintain a more constant temp in the refridge as temps change outdoors.

Usually hot dogs, the original health food!

More better is our version of the last supper. Leftovers go into the dutch oven, combined with a little cheese and crumbled potato or tortilla chips. Never know what it will taste like but it's always good!

Hot dogs haven't eaten them since university when preparing them was fun. 2 nails in a board, lamp cord attached to nails, hot dog impaled on nails, pull plug before swollen hot wiener explodes. Yumm

I never worry about what somethings going to taste like. I just add lots of ketchup. Everything tastes good with enough ketchup.

Hot dogs get a bad rap. All beef kosher like Nathans, cooked over the campfire, nothing better! Wrap up some tater tots in foil and bon apetit! If I'm going to clog my arteries I figure I should have fun doing it!

My most disappointing moment was ordering a hot dog at the Vancouver Children's Festival and it came on a whole wheat bun.
What's with that?

Now if you want the best hot dogs, check out Hofmann's. About the only brand I'll eat. Their Coney's (a white hot dog) with onions & hot sauce (Called a Texas Hot at Rudy's Lakeside Drive In) is the true indicator of Spring in Oswego!

As to eating while on the road, I would love to say I always eat wisely, but looking over my dinners for the last couple of years, Bubba burgers seems to be at the head of the list...

It should be on a good kaiser roll, and maybe be a brat instead, eh? Lots of sauerkraut and Dijon mustard too.

Not that we never eat lousy the odd time, but it is so easy to cook good stuff, and it tastes WAY better too. There are some comfort foods that are not so healthy that I like to eat a couple times a year, like mac 'n cheese, poutine, deserts, etc.

Still working on perfecting that beer and ice cream diet. Bet I could make a fortune if I did perfect it.

Camping is an opportunity to eat bad stuff without guilt, within limits of course. Brats, ok. Cook a couple extra and put them in our leftovers pot or with scrambled eggs..yummm.

So, have chili dogs migrated across the border? I tried a chili dog in Australia, what a dissapointment. Their version of chili is a sweet concoction with hot peppers. Fail! All chili's are not created equal, Texas Pete's and Walmart's Great Value are actually pretty healthy and darn good.
