We took another camping trip this weekend with our favorite camp family. They were there for the weekend, but we only invaded their space for one night. What a night it was!
For my knotty friends, I took this pic for you. I was able to almost complete my fingerless mitt original pattern while I was there. I’ll be writing it up soon.
Dinner was the best part of this trip. We started early with all the preparation. Fresh zucchini from my friend E’s garden and Summer squash from the neighbors garden. I also picked up some local corn on the cob. Totally easy to cook on the fire. Just soak in water for 20 mins with the husks on. Then place on the fire, rotating when needed for 20 mins. Corn has never tasted so good!
In honor of Summer, we decided to bring lobster to camp. Who needs burgers and hot dogs?
Oh, you know what these ingredients mean? CAMPFIRE CAKE!!!
The kids were really enjoying the dinner.
What’s not to enjoy, right?
There was low lighting, but you can see my silly husband in the back making the lobster wave (oh boy!)
Campfire cake time! This time around we used black forest cake and cherries.
Bake for 45 mins.
Ohhhh, the lusciousness…
Topped with cream cheese frosting! Can this seriously get any better?
Oh yes, it can. The next morning for breakfast, the Eagle Scout himself “threw” together another tantalizing dish of yumminess…
This is the makings of a French Toast Bake.
Bread, cinnamon, eggs, and I am not sure what else. He does it so fast, it’s hard to get the recipe! But it is cooked on the coals until golden. Served with maple syrup and fresh percolated coffee.
All followed by midday naps.
Summer is whizzing by, but we are hoping to squeeze out one more camping adventure. Are any of you camping? Where are you going next? Any suggestions for us?
