i'm ba-ack!

That's right campers! I had a WONDERFUL trip to Devils Postpile National Monument, but I can safely say I'm stoked that my hair no longer smells like smoke from the campfire! And I've finally showered (and so has Bran, thank GOD!)! And I no longer need fret that a bear is going to creep in and raid my ice chest! And I no longer have to hover while I pee (TMI?)! Camping is one of my favorite vacations in the world, but there really is nothing like coming home and cuddling with my kitties in my own bed.

Since I'm home, I'm getting my posties together and starting Monday of this week, I'll feature 5 ridiculously easy camping dinners, along with ingredient and equipment lists so that you're not left stranded without tongs or salt or something equally annoying. These meals were all made on a propane powered stove (you can see it in the pic) and with all the food and goodies that we could carry up in our cars. You forgot your coffee filters for the percolator? Tough tootles! No roasters for the marshmallows? Well, you better whittle yourself one or better luck next time!

Question of the day: What is it about food at high elevations tasting so damn good?

Hope to see you Monday!

Can't wait! And you know...I've never been to any high elevation places :( so I wouldn't know...someday.

Welcome back Cori! You're just in time for our Picnic Game. Any of those easy camping dishes begin with the letters N, O, Q, U, X, or Y? Can any recipe title name be adapted? Have anything to bring to the picnic in the pantry archives? If so, recite after me, I'm going on a picnic and I'm bringing... and join in on the FUN!!!

Thank you for the Birthday Wishes. I can't wait to hear about your camping expedition???

Cori, you make me chuckle. I'm not a camper but I can see where it would be fun. I love the idea of no technology (for a while!). I'm looking forward to hearing more of your experiences.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. It is so nice to make your acquaintance and to make a blogging friend!
