You can get a bit of inspiration from a Zatarains box.

Fresh food is good of course but we are going for six weeks and don't want to continually have to hunt for grocery stores. For the most part we won't be in one spot for more than three days.

And for casseroles etc and one pot meals canned chicken is not bad.

But neither is SPAM with mashed potatoes , dehydrated corn and good brown gravy. Yeah .. SPAM!

Both well used. Now up to 170 nights camping and 40,000 miles on the TT since purchase.

My wife loves cooking and usually she prepares one meal for each day we'll be camping. We also bring the staples (hot dogs, hamburgers, eggs, lunchmeats, etc.). Depending on where we go we also like to explore and try to find a unique restaurant to try for a dinner or a lunch. This year we're heading through Maryland so I'm bringing my crab steamer and plan to pick up some fresh blue crabs to take along for a nice treat by the campfire.

In general we cook from scratch at camp. 1st night often is leftovers, something we prepared in advance, maybe something store bought that's easy to prep, such as BBQ sandwiches. Rest of the rest of the weekend, we cook. The meals are generally are easy. Lunch might be as simple as cheese and crackers.

The meals for most part are planned. We do carry a few cann ed d goods so if dinner gets ruined or we are running late we have an easy option.

For the most part we prepare ahead of time, especially if it's something that's going to stink up the rig. We also do a lot on the grill once in camp.
