Diary of a Week of Camp Food

Shredded Spicy Chicken Tacos

Shredded Spicy Chicken Tacos

I mentioned in my last blog that camp food doesn’t always have to consist of hot dogs, burgers, and chili. In between all the work we did out there (and of course relaxing) I kept some scribbled notes of what we cooked and/or ate last week. Aside from the plank-grilled salmon, we really didn’t eat that gourmet but I tried to mix things up enough with what I brought so that we weren’t eating the same stuff every day. And it certainly helps that we have a stove and convection/microwave oven in the RV! I’m sure the menu would have been quite different if I just had to rely on our trusty charcoal grill. We typically only ate two full meals a day out there. I had plenty of snacks on hand to eat in between meals.

And there you have it! We had an unmemorable lunch of boiled eggs, string cheese, and Goldfish crackers on the drive back because we didn’t feel like stopping on the drive home anywhere.  I had brought all the food in a cooler and a box, with the exception of the vegetables which we bought at a produce stand about an hour from camp.  The only time I had to drive to a grocery store was to get ice every few days for our beer/soda cooler since the RV fridge is too small to store many cans. And yes, most meals were eaten off paper plates. Hey, it’s camping!

    Kathryn, I’m still waiting to be adopted by you and your family. If the adoption doesn’t go thru I’d at least like to come camping w/ you. I’ll bring my own tent and money for the food! Deal??? 😉 xo Susan 😉

    Hi Kathryn. I hope you’re feeling better.
    Today I’m working (in advance) on The Guitar Mancer installment that has the “things” you gave. I know this is an older post, but it is perfect to feature with the episode. So if you don’t mind, I’ll link back to it. I think that will be on April 16, 2016.
    Feel fabulous fast my friend. Huge hugs.

      Thanks Teagan, no I don’t mind you linking back to it at all! I’m slowly getting my new post done. I can only sit at the computer for about 15 minutes at a time, then have to go ice my back.
