As you know, we went camping over the weekend.
Because I was so busy last week, we were only able to go for one night and got to the campsite at around 11:20 am on Saturday. I was in charge of lunch for the crew so I had to get things started.
I usually make a couple of big casseroles, but I wanted to try something different.
Bring on The Pioneer Woman’s Mini Meatball Sandwiches!!! I made the meatballs on Saturday morning before we drove to the campsite so I just had to reheat them when we got there. It was actually pretty easy and everyone loved them!
I tripled the recipe and served them with some chips. Easy enough and a great camping meal. I also took a Toffee Gooey Butter Cake…
But that was devoured before I could get a picture. Fatsos.
For dinner Saturday night, we had hot dogs (courtesy of Emily and Jamison)…chicken pesto, chicken garlic and all beef hot dogs. Fancy times at the campsite. Of course I forgot to take pictures of the hot dogs, but I did manage to get a picture of the tomato, mozzarella and cucumber salad my brother brought.
It looks kind of sad there all by itself, but I promise that it was really good.
Kai and Julia had important discussions about the quality of the dinner.
And then G pretended to have a mail order bride…
And a knocked-up girlfriend on the side.
Side note: If G ever tried to pose with his had on my stomach, I’d punch him in the balls.
On Sunday morning, my mom baked a batch of blueberry muffins…
And made pancakes too!
Of course, we had about a billion snacks in between each meal…we didn’t want to run out of energy.
As usual, we had our creatures with us too. Jack was loving life:
Barbara was keeping watch:
Bailey was trying to find her brain:
And Max worked on perfecting his impersonation of a polar bear:
Gotta love the dogs!
