Spaghetti & Salad

They go hand in hand well and after camping in the woods a week a few more greens couldn't hurt!

Nature Pictures

No food today but a few pictures of the lake this past camping trip instead.

Campfire Spaghetti

We never eat mushrooms from a can but when it comes to camping and making our first ever spaghetti while camping we decided on a few tweaks. Canned mushrooms. They were just easier to keep fresh. We also employed a can of tomato sauce.  We still used a couple of fresh tomatoes but it'd take a lot of propane to make spaghetti from scratch and until we find a cast iron stove that can handle 1000f that doesn't cost the price of a small vacation this will have to do. The onion and red pepper were fresh too but other then oregano and basil that was it for the sauce. We also decided on macaroni noodles as it just seemed like it'd be a lot less messy and easier to eat. We were right!

After the following food pictures are some fire pit pictures in a collage. We still found a use for marshmallows even though neither of us wanted to roast them. Instead I want you to picture rum, hot chocolate and a toasted marshmallow on top. The camera was packed away by then but let's just say it was every bit as yummy as you'd imagine and more. Between the sweetness of the charred marshmallow, the bitter dark chocolate and the rum we had an extremely nice nightcap on our hands!

Steak Wraps

Every time we go camping the bread doesn't last more then a couple of days before molding. This time we augmented by bringing wraps. They tasted amazing and I think next time we will even go one step better and just bring hard taco shells. I'd imagine they'd keep even longer and fresher.

Hamburgers & Camping

They pretty much go hand in hand come dinner time, in the woods.

Steak on the Bbq

We did a little camping this past week so you might see a few outdoor food pictures and nature snapshots over the next few days. This steak was a little charred on the outside but as you can see it didn't effect the inside and instead it just added some good old Cajun flavour!

Mushroom Omelette & Home Fries

This was so good but I think the pictures can speak for themselves. This will be the last post for over a week so we figured it better be a decent one. Enjoy tantalizing your virtual taste buds!

Mini Pizza's

It was too hot to turn that oven on today so the naan bread went on the grill for a quick few. A barbecued half steak on there saved the need for pepperoni etc and was delicious.

Chicken Stir Fry

Along with everything else there was some fresh green and yellow beans added in for a kick. The rest of the pictures were a blurry and smokey mess.

Beefy Stir Fry

Yes, beefy stir fry and not just beef stir fry. Brown rice and steak meat works every time.

Macaroni & Cheese

Topped with Bacon. We cooked the bacon first, big mistake. It was also too dry and the cheddar cheese didn't melt as well as the white cheese did. Too dry, improperly melted cheddar cheese, overcooked bacon and yet it still tasted amazing.
