Camp food is as much a part of the camping experience as the activities. Nothing is more satisfying than starting off a long day of rigorous activity in the outdoors with a hearty breakfast or ending the day’s adventuring with a relaxing dinner. Who doesn’t remember the smell of fried bacon and freshly percolated coffee wafting through their campsite in the morning or the aroma of steaks sizzling on the grill over an open flame in the afternoon? Gathering around the campfire and enjoying great meals is part of what makes camping such a memorable experience. However, without the convenience of your modern kitchen appliances, preparing food in the outdoors can be a daunting experience. Here are my best tips to make the camp cooking experience less daunting and more fun.
Until recently, I had taken it for granted that I would spend the summer months engaging in my favorite outdoor activities. Each year as the snow gave way to the cool rains and warmer days of spring, I would begin planning kayaking, hiking and camping trips. My husband and I would choose the vegetables and herbs to plant in our backyard garden. Likewise, with adventure in mind, our summer vacation would be planned.
This year is different, though. Just as I was beginning to plan my outdoor summer adventures, I broke my hip, and I had to undergo hip replacement surgery.
