On driving days I either cook ahead, try to make sure I have some left overs available or pick up something at the market before we leave. It's all about planning! I actually do the same thing for lunches while we are on the road too.

Good luck!

We buy those whole cooked chickens at the grocery store. We have some for dinner with a salad or veggie or whatever.

The rest of the chicken we take off the bone and put in a zip lock bag. Leftovers for chicken burritos and heat up some black beans and corn, chicken caesar salad with crusty bread, plate of nachos with chicken on top, all kinds of things you can do with it that are quick and easy.

We often grab burgers just prior to camp or one of the kids has already planned a meal. They love to cook and we let them.

A left over hot dish, warmed in a microwave, is much better for my taste buds that a "microwave" meal, bought off the shelf.

I have a lot more energy in the morning and will put together a crock pot meal and plug it in. Or a meat dish in the crock pot.

Then I have started to learn to actually cook with my microwave. All these years I have used it mainly to reheat, cook popcorn or microwavable meals. I now cook vegetables - Fresh vegetables never tasted so good. They have so much more flavor. I never knew you could cook rice in the microwave. It takes the normal 20 minutes for longgrain rice but comes out perfect and no sticking to the bottom! Sweet and white baking potatoes.

But for times I flat-out do not want to do hardly anything to prepare a meal, tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich are perfect. Or, if I can stop at the store - a french baguette, cheeses, pate or salami or ham, a bit of fruit and yogurt, and a bottle of wine.

We do the same thing. Hard to beat, especially for $5.00.
We also pre cook some sides to go with the yard bird.

I buy the frozen baked chicken cubes (not the fajita flavor), the "ready rice" (already cooked) some broccoli and cream soup and make a casserole in a jiffy. Add cheese and a salad and voila! Just cook in the microwave. I also make a quick vegetable soup using the diced chicken, onion, can of tomatoes, 2 cans of mixed vegetables and chicken broth. Ready in 30 mins.
to make quick chili, brown the onion first, brown the hamburger (or have it already cooked and frozen) add the crushed canned tomatoes, kidney beans, chili powder and in 30 mins you have chili.
I also like the frozen dinners in bags with chicken and pasta and cook them in the microwave. Add a salad and dinner's ready!!
