in our kingdom hasn't allowed fires consistently for years, >>>

Oh? What kingdom is this? West? Caid?  Sorry, but I can't remember  
where you live right now. I can't think of any Ansteorran camping  
event which hasn't allowed open fire cooking, except when a burn-ban  
was in effect. More inter-kingdom anthropology, I guess.

<<< so I am
frequently reduced to preparing things at home in boiling bags and  
them on site with my trusty butane stove. That said, its amazing how  
medieval recipes adapt themselves well to this!  >>>

Anyone have some good suggestions for medieval recipes that adapt  
well to this technique? I'd like to add more such suggestions to the  
bag-cooking-msg  file in the Florlegium. And someday when I get one  
of the vacuum-sealer machines...
