Great Make-Ahead Foods for a Camping Trip?

Good Question

Q: I am going camping this weekend with my husband and three-year-old. Since there's a burn ban in effect we are unable to have a campfire and can only use our two-burner propane camp stove. I'm looking for suggestions on what to make ahead and take with us.

Ideally I'd like to get creative and have some really delicious and nutritious dishes and treats. It's hot here in Austin so I'd also rather not make or take anything highly perishable that requires a truck ton of ice.
