Looking for an old Field & Stream article about meal planning for a short camping trip.

This would have been published in the late 90's. It described what to pack and what to make for a three-day backpacking trip. Along the lines of "use half the summer sausage and cheese to make sandwiches for lunch on day 2; chop up the rest and mix with blah blah blah for stew that night. etc. etc.". I was impressed with the economy and clarity. It was kinda like those pre-made packing lists for a 10-day trip to Europe out of one bag.
This is exactly the type of camping trip I used to go on with friends, and I hung on to that article for a long time for our next trip. We used to do our own meal planning, and it seemed we always ended up with too much tripe and not enough couscous or whatever.
Lately we're thinking we'll go backpacking again, and I have long ago misplaced the fabled F&S article. Any pointers to it, or similar things, would be appreciated.
