Annual Winter Kayaking "Cheesecake" Trip 2013
Each participant on the winter kayak trip will bring and prepare some food for the group -- either one dinner, or two smaller meals. To choose your meals, visit the Doodle calendar here.
Keep in mind:
Meals should be enough to feed 11 hungry people. Calories are important to help keep warm in the winter! If in doubt, bring a little extra; you can always prepare less.
Our dietary requirements in this group include:
Kitchen equipment (pots, pans, spatula/stir spoon, cutting boards, kettle, MSR stoves & fuel, a couple of serving bowls etc) is provided; just bring enough ingredients/spices for your meal and you're good to go! Food should be packed in waterproof bags, just like your clothes.
>> Please check ingredients for hidden things like milk products, nuts and beef broth.

Breakfast: perhaps cereal, granola, oatmeal, couscous or (for the adventurous) French toast, along with a serving of fresh fruit for everyone.
Lunches: a quick soup or chili to heat over a campstove at lunch is a great addition to a winter trip. Try pairing soup with pitas, wraps, kaisers etc. and choose-your-own toppings like cream cheese, bean spread, tomatoes, falafels, peppers, hummus, etc.
Dinners: Great, calorie-rich dinners might include rice, pasta, burritos, lentils, potatoes, quinoa, rice noodles, chili, chickpeas, yams, curries, stirfrys, etc.
Snacks: granola bars, rice cakes, chocolate-covered jubejubes, cookies, fruit, muffins, chips, pita & hummus, popcorn, etc. Think of both kayak-friendly & land snacks.
Desserts: Besides the cheesecakes which have become tradition, consider brownies, marshmallows, fruit salad, pie, bannock ... choose your own adventure!
