This was the menu that I had planned for our camping trip. In case you missed my posts, you can read and check out the photos of the campground and springs here, and our camp set-up here.
I didn’t remember to take photos of each of our meals, below are the few that I did manage to take.
I have to mention that we all like our sandwiches prepared differently. Dana takes his not toasted with mayo, sometimes with ranch dressing and/or mustard (Dijon or honey mustard depending on his mood). Monk and I like ours grilled on the iron skillet with butter, melted cheddar, lettuce and turkey. From time to time I would omit the lettuce on my sandwich and use avocado instead.
Day 1, Lunch: turkey sandwiches | chips | pistachios | fruit
|sourdough bread | deli turkey meat | grated cheddar cheese | sliced onions | mayo | avocado | butter | ranch dressing | mustard | chips |pistachios | frozen blueberries | sliced watermelon | sliced Bella Vitano Espresso cheese |

| blueberry cream cheese muffins | coffee cake muffins | sliced apple | sliced watermelon | sliced Bella Vitano Espresso cheese | coffee | whipped cream (for coffee) | sugar |
The muffins I made a couple of days before leaving for our trip so we would have something easy on hand if we got really hungry.
Day 2, Lunch: bratwurst | chips |fruit
| bratwurst buns | bratwurst | sliced onions | shredded cheddar | honey Dijon mustard | sliced watermelon | frozen blueberries | chips |
Day 2, Dinner: chicken fajita

Day 3, Breakfast: pancakes | bacon | breakfast sausage | hash brown | fruit | cheese
| milk | vanilla | egg | maple syrup | ketchup | bacon | breakfast sausage | hash brown | frozen blueberries | sliced apple | avocado| sliced Bella Vitano Espresso cheese |
I ended up forgetting the milk so we scrapped the pancake idea and made scrabbled eggs instead. I also forgot to cook the hash brown.
Day 3, Lunch: turkey burgers | fruit | whipped feta
| turkey burgers | burger buns | sliced onion | american cheese | sliced strawberries | whipped feta |
Day 3, Dinner: bulgogi | jasmine rice

All the meat I had prepared and marinated ahead of time, stored in a vacuumed sealed bag and stuck back in the freezer. The only meat that was thawed was the tri-tip since that was dinner for our first night, I took that out of the freezer the day before we left and it thawed in the fridge and continued thawing in the cooler. The whipped feta I also prepped ahead of time and kept in a mason jar in the cooler. If I had to do it over again, I would cook the bacon and breakfast sausage at home and just reheat them when we were ready to eat them. I used the Coleman propane stove and a griddle to cook them and the heat from the stove was too high, even on the lowest setting and I ended up burning them a bit. I forgot the milk so we didn’t have pancakes or hot cocoa.
