At the risk of sounding like an aluminum foil commercial we often make 
meals, wrap them in foil, put them in a large zip lock and freeze them.  
They act as part of the ice (along with the frozen water which we later 
drink as it defrosts) that goes into the cooler.  The zip lock is to 
keep any melting ice water from getting into the food.  When it's time 
for dinner we just heat up the little propane stove and warm up the now 
defrosting meal.  Depending on weather and how fast your frozen food 
defrosts will determine how long it takes to heat up.   Use a good 
quality foil or double wrap.  Not even a pot to dry with this method.  
I've done this with East Indian food, steaks, any non liquid.  We also 
love artichokes and will precook them in the microwave (takes less than 
ten minutes) but don't freeze them. 

I'd be interested in the Andalusian egg in a jar recipe as well.

I was at H.E. Gunthar's feast and it was wonderful,  proving even 
limited kitchens can be used for feasts if the chef is creative.
