Our Camp Menu

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 |

Day 1, Dinner: tri-tip | salad | sliced watermelon
| tri-tip with spice rub | salad mix | sliced bell peppers | sliced onions | boiled eggs | chopped tomato | feta cheese | avocado |croutons | ranch dressing | bleu cheese dressing | sliced watermelon |

Campfire Tri-Tip

Dana remember to snap a photo of the tri-tip but of course I totally forgot to take one of our salad.

Day 2, Breakfast: breakfast muffins | fruit | cheese | coffee
| blueberry cream cheese muffins | coffee cake muffins | sliced apple | sliced watermelon | sliced Bella Vitano Espresso cheese | coffee | whipped cream (for coffee) | sugar |

Camp Breakfast | blueberry cream cheese muffins | coffee cake muffins | french pressed coffee with whipped cream

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 |

I remembered to snap a pic of the bratwurst but not after it was assembled, we had sliced watermelon on the side.

Day 2, Dinner: chicken fajita
| chicken | sliced bell peppers | sliced onions | shredded cheddar | sour cream | tortillas | jasmine rice | sea salt | pepper |

chicken fajita | rice | tortillas

I like my chicken fajita with rice, Dana and Monk likes theirs with tortillas.

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.

Camp Breakfast | french pressed camp coffee with whipped cream | breakfast muffins | bacon | breakfast sausages | scrambled eggs

My birthday breakfast.

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
| bulgogi | jasmine rice | sliced green onions |

Day 4, Breakfast: turkey sandwiches | fruit | cheese
| deli turkey meat | shredded cheddar | mayo | sourdough bread | butter | avocado | sliced apple | sliced Bella Vitano Espresso cheese |

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.

Misc. :
| graham cracker | marshmallow | chocolate | granola | cinnamon cereal | hot cocoa |
