Q: My friends and I recently went on a 3-day kayaking-camping trip. We didn't have room for coolers so we had to get creative with meals.  Our stand-by is PB&J, fruit, and mac & cheese, but we'd like to class it up a little! Any ideas for meals or ingredients that keep well on a multi-day camping trip?

On this last trip, one dinner was frozen and reheated the first night. The second night was pizza over the fire with asparagus. I'd love some more options!
