Oooh! oooh! Ooooh! (raising hand frantically) Is trout the official ingredient? (like in Iron Chef) or can we use locally trapped critters for vittles. I have a couple waskilly wabbits that need some trappin!
Kim - While packaged pastas and soups and canned chili and the like are all great ideas for a camp meal, I think the spirit of this comp is to actually create a new dish out of base ingredients. Swede's submission is a fine example of working witrh the rules and the spirit of this comp. Make it simple, make it complicated.... it doesn't matter as long as it has a recipe and uses readily available ingredients that are suitable for transport to and cooking at the campsite
Rocky - As far as I'm concerned Flattened Fauna Fajitas are a completely legit dish. From what I've heard, your driving style produces quite a pile of perfectly tenderized road kill .... let's see you do something creative(and edible) with it.
