Finally, and I do mean finally, a camping weekend that didn't involve working on the camper(s) or attending various functions at the campgrounds. I love the campgrounds where we camp and the people there are absolutely the best. But sometimes it is really
nice to just hang out with my fiancee and chill. This past weekend was one of those. I loved it. We actually arrived early enough on Friday to cook. (I guess the purchase of a 32ft totally contained camper/trailer helped. Ya Think!?) We had strip steaks,
potatoes and steamed cauliflower. Yummy.
Our favorite pasttime when we camp is listening to the radio or cds and playing games. Uno, Yatzee, Monopoly or Phase 10. We are always on the lookout for new games to add to our collection. We have bean bag toss for outside. Mac really likes that one,
because he can grab the beanbag and run around making us chase him. Silly boy, doesn't he know Mom always wins.
The weatherman was predicting some pretty ugly weather for Saturday afternoon. We decided to head to the grocery store and pick up a few things we "forgot". Drove under some pretty heavy clouds but managed to stay dry. When we got back to the camper it was
time to begin the prep for dinner. Steak Quesidillas! I fixed them inside only because of the slight drizzle that had begun. Of course as soon as that decision was made, the rain stopped. But we sliced and diced and warmed, made guacamole, and fixed some
super tasty Quesidillas. I also made a pinapple upside down cake for dessert. I used a box mix and "eyeballed" the sauce for the "upside down" top. I always make more that I should but the sauce is so good. I used the pinapple juice to make the cake instead
of water. It really punches up the flavor. Darryl loved it and I have to admit, for my first baking experience in the camper it turned out pretty well.
Sunday was fun as well. We had a breakfast cassarole of eggs, chopped onion, chopped tomato, chopped leftover griller potatoes, bacon pieces fried crispy and some mushrooms. I combined all the ingredients and baked it for about 30 minutes. It was delicious,
even if I do say so myself. We spent the rest of the day just cleaning and doing the stuff that really doesn't take long but can be a pain. The weather was cool and crisp and the sky was the bluest I think I've ever seen it.
Well, enough for today. Darryl is working a show next weekend and I'll be playing catch-up on all the chores around the house. Everyone stay well and eat happy!
