Potluck with canned goods

How about curry chicken spread. canned chicken, mayo (or miracle whip which will keep without refrigeration. Use a clean utensil to scoop every time), curry powder to taste. Canned water chestnuts can give crunch if you find them and can stock up. Olive tapenade: Kalamata olives (from a jar) maybe a dozen, 1 clove of garlic (powder if necessary), capers. Chop really fine add some mayo-Miracle whip.

Pasta sauce: canned diced tomatoes. drained, kalamata olives(no pits), capers, garlic. Saute chopped garlic in olive oil if fresh. If not just add a little olive oil and all of the above, let it simmer for a bit, add pasta. Serve.

If you get kalamata olives with pits, just squish them with the broad side of a knife and pop the pit out. a cup of fresh parsley chopped if available is good to add. Parmesan cheese if available. I always made this the 2nd week out when we ran out of ice and didn't want to go to civilization.
