Basically the only reason to go camping is to eat food FOR THE ENTIRE WEEKEND! And you get to eat food that is totally bad for you. When we go camping, we divide up the food duties. First up, we had dinner on Friday night. I made this masterpiece:
OMG, this lasagna is so good. I stole the recipe from The Pioneer Woman (you can find it here). Seriously, good stuff. Also, can I just mention how much I love Ree Drummond and how excited I am for her to have a tv show on the Food Network?!!! I’m still waiting for someone to approach me about my own reality show…hello BRAVO, WTF ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!!!
My mom also made her famous seafood lasagna. I forgot to take a pictures of it while we were camping so I just have some of the reheated leftovers G ate when we got home.
The next morning, we had a TON of eggs, hashbrowns, fruit salad and sausage…it was out of control. And yes, I forgot to take pictures.
Next up: Lunch.
Guess who was responsible for lunch? The Japanese! I was excited to see what they’d make. We had chicken curry and it was fantabulous!!
Now we had all this extraordinary food around, but one of the campers chose to chew on this:
Dinner Saturday night consisted of pork loin, bread, fruit salad, baked beans and mashed potatoes.
We are totally balls to the wall when it comes to eating at the campsite. Don’t you wish you went camping with us? Oh, you don’t want to gain 13 pounds in 3 days like G did? Well, I guess I understand.
After dinner, it was time for s’mores. There were a few people who had never had a s’more, but no one was more excited than this dude:
The following morning we had stuffed french toast casserole prepared by my mom. It was amazing and pretty much like eating dessert for breakfast. You can’t beat that. Unfortunately, I was too busy eating as much as possible and forgot to get pictures of it. I will try harder (not to be such a fat pig) next time.
So that’s the camping food recap. Let me know if you would like to participate next time.
