Camping menu

One of the hardest parts for me of our recent camping trip was planning the meals. It sounds simple until the realization that everything going with the meal needs to be packed. For instance, if pancakes sound good then you need all the ingredients for the pancakes plus whatever toppings (syrup, fruit, whatever) that everyone will want.

It is easy to say that Friday we will cook hamburgers but to think of everything that everyone is going to want on the hamburger as well as what sides can make it more difficult.

All in all though, I think we were all satisfied with the camping menu.

As a special surprise, we made donuts while camping. When I was a kid, my dad would make donuts out of canned biscuits that were shaped and then deep fried and rolled in a cinnamon sugar mixture. Yum.

Since we are gluten-free, those canned biscuits are out and I hoped I could find something to taste equivalent. What I ended up doing is taking a cinnamon roll Chebe mix and making donut balls with it that were rolled in cinnamon sugar. The flavor was really good but they were chewier than I really want them to be. The kids loved them though - Hubby said they had a good flavor but he couldn't really eat them (long story that will come later).

Full menu to come in a post soon.
