I’m leaning toward make ahead wraps for the main dish for supper and lunch (using one of my home grown chickens as the meat) and having the side be . For breakfast I’ll make muffins or sweet bread, boiled eggs and I might snag Wardeh’s Baked Oatmeal idea too. We love baked oatmeal, I just hadn’t thought of it as portable before. A quart or two of real milk will also be going along and either water kefir or kombucha (maybe both depending on space). I’m toying with taking along my dairy kefir grains. We won’t have access to real (raw) milk but kefiring store milk at least puts a few good things back into it.
I was inspired by a video from the GNOWFGLINS eCourse- Sourdough Camping (September 2010)– where Erin shared her camping road trip. She took along her sourdough starter and made pancakes a few times. I loved the tips she offered. I think I’ll copy her and take along some of my starter too. And a waffle iron since we will have electricity at some of our campsites. Plus one place we will be staying in Joe’s grandma’s and I would love to treat her to scrumptious sourdough waffles for breakfast.
Here is where I could use a little help from all of you.
What kinds of things would you make if you were going to be camping?
I’ll be able to go to the grocery store to restock but probably just a regular store not a health food or specialty store. I am okay with buying ground buffalo or organic ground beef and beef steaks/roast and lamb at the grocery store (but not chicken) and we love fish (but not shell fish). I have a few ideas but to be honest, my list looks very boring. I should add we will be eating S’Mores at least one night. I’m thinking that if we make the effort that we should still come close to our 80/20 motto and the S’Mores fall into the 20 (that is my story and I am sticking with it).
And for a few more ideas…
What if you were going to spend a night or two in a motel? What would you do about your food options?
I’ll have my waffle iron that I already mentioned but do you think I should plan for anything else or just bite the bullet and count on dining out? I did read an article called How to Cook Food in a Hotel Room but in my opinion those ideas are a bit disturbing so I won’t be using the coffee maker to cook eggs as suggested. Blech. I’m leaning more toward cooking a few extra things on our last camping night that can be eaten cold. Ideas?
I look forward to reading your suggestions!
