Thread: Fishapalooza-Fest - Menu Items / Recipes For!

  1. #1

    Default Fishapalooza-Fest - Menu Items / Recipes For!

    'My Fellow 'Paloozers'!'

    It's never too early to start planning, pick some seasoned, gourmet chef brains and perhaps help some others in planning their menus for a camping gtg.

    A group of fishing enthusiasts, fraternizing riverside while camping, fishing, story-telling, enjoying life and nature while alternating 'designated adult' and fire patrol responsibilities, not to mention - satiating all the hungry appetites!!

    OK - I'll start... I'm putting CLAM SOUP on the menu...
    As for a recipe, um, uh. . . .

    Any other suggestions?

    Dan - how about that Dutch oven (I need to scan my brain files for some Dutch oven goodies from previous camping trips!)

    I know at least one day, probably 2 days my dinner menu will consists of a liquid diet. Don't worry DOC, I will get my vegetables. Celery and tomato juice for my bloody bulls. I make a 2 gallon pitcher. yummmyyy.

    When ever we go camping, my family always tries to make hobo dinners for one of the meals. Its easy and requires little to no clean up and its a great meal after a long day of fishing.

    All you need is:
    -ground meat (preferably moose)
    -sliced potato
    -sliced onion and other vairous vegis (like carrots, bell peper, etc)
    -some butter
    -seasoning of your choice
    -tin foil

    Make paties out of the ground meat and place it in the tin foil, add some veggis, a little butter and your favorite seasonings (Ilike to use a bunch of garlic salt) wrap it all up and throw it in the fire. We will usually throw a couple of charcol brequetts on the fire to help with the cooking.

    Hobo stew is very yummy. I never really plan a dinner for each night. I carry steaks, dogs, brats, chops, burgers, ribs. It all depends on what I feel like eating after a day on the water. I do know I have never starved nor will I.

    We have the cast iron sandwich makers and make what we call Hobo pies.

    2 pcs Bread and filling.

    for the fillings we make it simple.

    Ham & Cheese
    Pepperoni Cheese & Pizza Sauce
    Desert we use Biscuits & pie filling

    Super easy and you can use just about anything for a filling.


    Oh and Chuck I always have plenty of Ribeyes myself. Can't beat a good Steak, Baked Potato, and Corn on the Cob on an open fire by the river.

    Food? You mean we eat at the palooza?

    LOL! Actually, food is mostly a night thing. Breakfast is Baileys and Coffee and a beer or two prior to and during launch of the boats. Beer and snacks during the day and then beer after the recovery of the boats. After a warm fire and a beverage or two it's cook what we got and plan for tomorrow!

    A woman's touch would be kinda nice though! Glad my wife isn't whatching me type this! LOL!

    Here's to the best Fishapalooza yet!

    Hot links! The hotter, the better! Oh... bring two ply TP also! It sure can get rough fishing all day and then having to make some "private breaks" when you only have one ply after the hot links!

    Don't ask my why I know this!

    Just now saw this post man, sorry for the late reply. I had already been giving this some thought myself, glad to see a thread on it. The biggest issue will be how many mouths are to be fed. I see lots of names on the list, but not sure who will be there during what time. Perhaps it will vary as people come in for a few days, then leave, others join, etc.. Not sure how many will be there at one time. This will be an issue on dutch oven cooking. Big difference in cooking for 6 and 16. I have a 10" and 12" oven, but I am usually only cooking for 4-6. Anyone have an idea of how many will be there at the same time, shoot me a pm.

    Among my favorite float trip meals is grayling gumbo and garlic biscuits. We take the Zatarains dried gumbo mix (in box) and cook it about half done, then add grayling slivers to it. Any other fish would work, but you would not have the same cool name. After about 20 minutes, it flakes into pieces and becomes infused with the flavors of the gumbo mix. While this is going, we make garlic biscuits in the dutch oven.

    Another meal we always prepare on float trips is chilli with jalepeno cornbread. Chilli in a big pot cooking slow. Cornbread must be Jiffy for a southern boy, but Crusteaz will do. I take dehyrdated jalepenos and rehydrate around dinner time, mince them up a bit, and add to the cornbread batter. Cook in dutch oven while the chilli continues to cook. Awesome meal and the cornbread compliments the chilli well.

    For deserts, my newest favorite in a dutch oven is pineapple upside down cake. This also makes a great breakfast if you can find anyone willing to get up an hour before everyone else.

    I find it funny that you stated this considering Jiffy mix is made in Michigan. But then again I guess that is south of Alaska.

    Default take pre-made saffron sauce - eat with freshly caught fish

    Premake this saffron sauce, pour it into appropriate meal-sized tupperwares and let it harden back up.

    After catching fish, just pan fry them with salt pepper and oil or butter, then in a small pan reheat the saffron sauce to be a liquid again. Pour on top and eat. Piece of cake to make in the field and twice as yummy.

    Practice the sauce once first for an at home meal because the many step process to make it is tricky.

    Dan-

    Glad I asked you - you reminded me about a great dutch oven book I lent to a friend who's 'up there' in the scouting heirarchy in SoCal...
    Time to re-call that publication!

    Yes, the dutch oven is a classic in camping with all the potential uses.

    I'm thinking as time draws nearer and plans solidify, Chuck can sort of 'plot out' the head counts for the various times... and we go from there.

    Sorry Dan, we couldn't hook up here in Beantown - been nice weather, though!

    FamilyMan-
    'Some preparation' required... And we went to the 'food porn' movie in the post, as well!
    Sounds delicious - might just try it 'at home' as you suggested.
    I love saffron! I think it is the most expensive seasoning - by weight, btw...

    Thanks to All - Keep 'Em Coming!!

    I was up in Nome for a year and all I could find was Krusteaz. On Cape Cod now and Krusteaz is sold here. But then again, they have Duncan Donuts and no Krispy Kreme, no Little Debbies, no Sundrop, no pimento cheese, no Beenie Weenies

    Funny how food changes so much from one part of the country to the next.

    But when I get back to North Carolina I will probably complain about not being able to find Krusteaz for my beer battered halbibut

    The one thing you cant do is feed everyone. It is a big potluck share fest. If you dont want to or dont feel the urge to be around everyone you can make a meal at your camp too. Noone is ecpected to feed everyone at all. Usually we all just meet at the fire and figure it out every evening. One person will say steaks, another chili, another brats and so forth. We cook it up, snack on a little of everything, was it down with some cold ones and stories around the fire, and relax after a great day on the water.



    Dog your breakfast is like mine.

    Baileys and Coffee, load boat, drink pre float beer. Go fish. Fishing snacks, Cheese, Beef Jerky, Sourdough bread, Beer


    Oh and Dan. I cant cook a cake that good at home. You are Da man Dan

    Default Won't Be Long Now!

    Time to rally-up this thread.
    Some behind the scenes PM'ing has got me yearning for some midnight sun all over again!

    Any other ideas, thoughts, interests for Palooza-meals?

    I am imagining a hungry bunch (the thirst quenching dealt with by others!)

    Or is it gonna be every man / woman for themselves?
    I'm good either way . . . I mean, re: the choices, not the man / woman thing!

    No gourmands in the group?
    Speak up!

    Default Good idea RSKY BIZ

    Good time to bring this thread up. I have been wondering the same as you. Kind of sounds like folks are making their own food independent of each other, maybe at the same time, but seperate. As you brought up earlier, the hard part is knowing who is going to be there at what time. For the sake of numbers and all. Perhaps hard to get this determined as some people may have flexible/tentative plans to join in. I think I will bring up the dutch oven/ovens to make some cakes/biscuit/cornbread/etc.. if the time/urge comes up.

    Dan-

    I'll support your 'urges' -- for cooking, that is! Heck - I'll wash the pots!

    BTW - how's the night shift in Ol' Nantuckey?
    I miss the Vineyard this time of year. . . .
