Ok, seriously, you'll need to eat and we're assuming that you won't exactly be next door to a major grocery store! We'd suggest making a few mixes ahead of time: spice blends for cooking, muffin or scone mixes, and soup mixes. You could also make bread dough ahead of time, bring it in a big tupperware container, and bake your loaves or buns at the cabin in your wood oven!
For perishable ingredients like meat and milk, it depends on how far you have to travel - or if you think you can pick up those ingredients close to the cabin. Assuming you're only driving a few hours, most ingredients will be just fine packed into a cooler and kept in the trunk of your car.
Here are a few recipes we'd suggest:
Does anyone else have good recipe recommendations or advice for Emily?
