<<< I was wondering If you could help me out with some suggestions for
(acceptable) food for camping. We have only very limited cooling  
space, so I
tend to bring fruit which doesn't perish too quickly, some nuts and  
but this year we will be at an event for almost a week, probably sunny
weather and our own tent. >>>

Here are a couple of Florilegium files which might prove useful.

     (cook the food at home, freeze in plastic bags and then simply  
boil the bags in a pot of boiling water. Might be good for the first  
few days when you are still trying to get your camp kitchen set up)
