Camping dinner #2. Beef stew and leftover biscuits. This is the meal I was most looking forward to making in the dutch oven. It lived up to my expectations!

08.23.12 Breakfast

Camping biscuits and gravy in the dutch oven! I made the dry part of the biscuit dough at home, then just added milk into the ziplock it was packed in, mushed it together and scooped it out. No dishes! (I would balk at the waste if we were eating at home, but somehow, it’s ok if we’re camping….)

08.22.12 Dinner

First night of vacation: foil packets with Italian sausage, peppers, onions, and mushrooms. Served with egg noodles. It was raining all evening, so I was glad we didn’t really have to tend this meal too closely!

08.14.12 Dinner

The first of our city farm’s eggs! Notice the difference between the color of the store bought eggs on the left and the homegrown ones on the right. Amazing!!!

08.11.12 Dinner

Spaghetti with a quick meat sauce made with tomatoes from our garden. I never know what to do when I don’t really have enough to can, so this used up some odds and ends that were hanging out on the counter. Also, Meg ate three servings, so that’s a win!

07.28.12 Dinner

I love having company! Homemade tortillas, cilantro-lime rice, beans, fresh salsa with stuff from our garden, grilled round steak, avocado-yogurt sauce. The most exciting part? The only non-pantry staples in this meal: steak, avocado, and cilantro!

07.22.12 Dinner

Ok, so this looks kind of gross, but the picture doesn’t do it justice. Broccoli fritters with lemon yogurt sauce, poached eggs, and french bread. I told Meg that the fritters were pancakes. She wasn’t fooled.
