Macaroni&Cheese from a box
Beef stew with potatoes. And don't try to tell me that it's period 
because you left the potatoes out.
Chocolate- unless you have a meso-American persona

I kind of waffle about sandwiches with luncheon meat and cheese, etc. 
Yes, they had the ingredients, but that doesn't mean that they 
necessarily put them together that way. However, I put sandwich 
materials out for lunch because people tend to come through at different 
times, and it is the easiest way to manage the food.

What you won't find in my camp: potatoes, tomatoes (and tomato-based 
food), capsicum peppers, corn (and corn-based foods). I do not do coffee 
(I can't drink it) but if someone else in camp wants to make it, I won't 
stop them. I have strong black tea in the morning. It is a public safety 
measure. ;-)

I occasionally bring a tub of my double-chocolate brownies. I find them 
to be excellent bribe materials. I do keep them under cover and out of 
sight. I have a reputation to uphold, after all. :-)
