Camping Grub 2009 Part 1: Breakfast

Camping last week was excellent! The weather was perfect, except for the last night & the morning we packed up, when it rained. But other than that, it was hot and sunny, and the lake was still nice enough to swim in.

And of course we ate well! Let's start my 2009 Camping Grub series off with breakfast.

On Morning #1, we opted for a cooked, greasy camping breakfast of bacon & eggs, cooked over the camp stove. We also had toast made from a loaf of no-knead bread I made the day before we left. The camping toaster gadget was broken, so my SIL toasted the bread gently over the BBQ.There is something about cooking food on a camp stove out in the woods just makes everything taste way better!

On Morning #2, we had a super easy breakfast made by my SIL before we left: homemade peach crisp, made with local peaches. We had this with some vanilla yogurt and it was excellent!On Morning #3, it was raining, so we had breakfast in the trailer. I had made some granola at home and we had it with, again, vanilla yogurt. The recipe for the granola is here, but I used some coconut in it, and only used whole almonds as I was out of hazelnuts. Yum!
The full camping Flickr set, including all our food, some gorgeous scenery, and a gigantic bug, is here.

Mmmm, the greasy breakfast is my favorite! Okay, what the heck is that bug??? It kind of reminds me of a scarab beetle... well, whatever it is, it's HUGE and GROSS!

Food is so much better in the country! I could go for some of those bacon and eggies. Much better than the Shredded Wheat I had for breakie.

It's a wonder you wanted to come - looks like a relaxing time AND great chow. Wish I had been there!

OF COURSE cooking outside over fire makes EVERYTHING taste better!

Peach crisp for breakfast?! You are one spoiled camper! Are you going to follow up with the lunches and dinners? I love eggs and bacon while camping but hate hate hate cleaning the griddle!

Palidor: Yeah, that was quite possibly the biggest bug I'd ever seen in my life! I thought it was some tropical cockroach that had gotten lost! It's called Prionus Californicus. It flies. It's nocturnal. It hisses at you if you touch it. Yeah, ICK!

Joie: Nice to see you! Oh, I have a week's worth of camping grub posts coming up, so stay tuned!

I agree everything just seems to taste better when you're in the great outdoors...even hotdogs.

I TEND TO EAT MORE THEN I SUPPOSE TO WHEN I AM IN THE CAMP GROUND, ESPECIALLY WITH BACON AND EGGS. THEY ARE MY FAVORITE THING TO HAVE FOR BREAKFAST. Delicious!

Bob said...

Awesome. I remember camping when I was a kid, there is nothing better than the smell of bacon cooking in the woods.

Helene said...

Your food looks so yummy. Love food while camping.

Palidor said...

OMG, it HISSES?? Just when I thought that awful bug couldn't get any more disgusting. Ewww... I'm glad they're not here in southern Ontario!
