Last year when we went camping, I under-packed food. We were hungry.
This year I decided to try a foil-dinner. I threw together some veggies in foil. I did look it up on google for a few tips, but it was crunchy after a really long time near/in/on-top-of the fire. We were so hungry, we tried to endure the crunchy veggies. Phoebe bit into a hard-as-rocks potato and exclaimed: "MOM! I KNEW you cooked this too long!"
No honey, that would be, not long ENOUGH.
Jason fixed it somehow, and despite the salt that I forgot to douse on the veggies back at home, it was pretty tasty. Or bellies were full and warm:
In the morning I made hot cocoa! I was so impressed with myself! And then I made chocolate-chip pancakes! After that wonderfully warm breakfast in the wilderness, I had a breakthrough thought: Now I know what it is like to be a HAPPY CAMPER!
Guys, I was ACTUALLY....HAPPY ....while CAMPING!
Since the crew with the smores were so late in arriving the night before, we had smores for breakfast too, and for mid-morning snack, AND for lunch. Tasty, delicious and nutritious.
Of course what made out camping trip all WORTH IT, was the joy that it brought our little ones. They had the best time.
