Default How many times...

Do you eat fish on a week long trip in the bush? We are putting our menu together for a July trip. On past trips we will eat maybe two dinners and one shore lunch. Looking back it seems like a waste of an opportunity to have some amazing meals of fresh fish. Plus it makes grocery shopping easier and saves on weight which is always a big problem for my group.

Considering the high cost of walleye fillets, my trip is free about Wednesday.

I personally love to cook and my brother loves to eat, lol, he cleans the fish and the boat while I prepare the dinner, I prebake a number of meals vacuum seal and freeze at home, a whole Prime Rib, a Corned Beef Brisket ect... Desserts are just before bed and are the highlight of the trip , second only to fishing and that amazing wilderness.

We have walleye everyday of our week trip.
Fried walleye 2 nights.
Blackened and boiled.
Fish tacos.
Steak and boiled walleye.

The two nights we don't have walleye we have a "shore lunch" at the cabin. Also one time during the week we make a walleye omelet for breakfast.

This is the only week of the year we have a chance to take walleye directly from a pristine lake to the dinner table. We feel it is our "duty" to take advantage. Hey somebody has to do it!

First two days in camp we eat fish, then every other day. In between days each guy on the trip is responsible for at least one home made meal. Usually a wife's "popular with the guys" dish.

We have two prepared meals a day then maybe a snack before we turn in for the night.

We have a breakfast (cold cereal or hot breakfast, alternate every other day) then come back in to camp around one or two PM for our big meal of the day. Take a nap then go back out around five o'clock for the evening bite. Anyone hungry before bed can make a sandwich, popcorn, grilled cheese or what ever we have brought just for that evening snack.

Works for us.

Maybe once in a week. Maybe.

It's usually just me and another person so we try to keep prep and clean-up time to a minimum. Like Live To, I do the some premade stuff at home.

I charcoal cook a pork roast in the kettle with the fat side up which is buried under garlic powder and onion powder (When you think you have enough of both, add more.) Wrapped in foil for the trip; warmed in the oven at camp. Leftovers make great sandwiches.

Warm womp biscuits are nice. Those are the wrapped biscuits you peel the wrapper off and "womp" them on the counter to get them to pop open. Get then "grand" size. For two people, they will work for two meals.

We will do a "breakfast for dinner." We don't bother with a big breakfast in the morning. Cereal, juice, maybe toast then down to the boat. For dinner we will do wheat or flax pancakes, scrambled eggs, etc.

My trips are in the fall (last week of September this year) so we plan to have our big meal of the day at about 2:00 pm then go back out until the lake is dead calm and the skies are cobalt.

I'm ready...

We have a big breakfast every morning . I eat oatmeal at home every morning and on a trip i splurge . So sausage , bacon, eggs , biscuits etc.
We eat fish everyday. At least 4 of the eight nights we eat fish when we come in at dark , which is pushing midnight . That makes around 12 meals of fish in eight days. Mid week we do make a couple pizzas . Another couple is going with us this year . We told them what we eat and they said that's about what they do when they go. To break this up a little , one day we have fish and potatoes and the next we have potates and fish . We make slaw and put in container in fridge so we don't have to make it everyday.
I am ready to fish and eat fish . 4 week to go !
