I’m super excited to be going camping for Memorial Weekend. It is not our big annual camping trip (that’s in a few weeks) but this one is up to our local mountains. Two hours from our door-step, it’s going to be a great little getaway.
We’ll be bringing our washing-machine-turned-fire-pit…
…and will probably be making Banana Boats
I usually make chili and freeze it in baggies so that it serves as ice blocks in the cooler on the way to the campsites.
We won’t be bringing up chili for this trip, but I have to tell you, I have been hanging around on my talented friend Jenn’s blog, Rook No. 17 and checking out inspiration for yummy camping, grilling and all around fabulous recipes for any occasion. I am going to be making her Thai Pesto with Cold Noodles as a make-ahead side dish for Saturday night. (I’ve made it before, it’s delish!)
Like I said, I was poking around and drooling. Jenn is an amazing cook. Amazing. Check out all of her recipes HERE. Her desserts are delicious and gorgeous. I’m drooling over these camping inspired desserts:
