prep gets us relaxing
Oh ya we prep: fruit is easily cleaned and put in to zip-locs(watermelon, cantaloupe, pineapple…), veggies( broccoli, cauliflower, corn, even prosciutto wrapped asparagus) can all be cleaned, seasoned and put in zip-locs. A few meat marinades: thin pork chops(jerk and lemon-pepper), chicken….. super fast and easy. I always try and do a bigger something: clam chowder, chili, lentils, pezole…..and it should give us two meals(not in a row) and maybe a snack/lunch
I work super hard at home so our camping can be as nice/easy as possible checking all the campers systems, stocking the camper, truck, all the toys(bikes, kayaks, fishing, hiking, cameras,…) getting the kids to pack what they’ll need . It’s nice to get out of town and on to our adventure and slow down.
We are usually gone for 5 to 40 days and while you cannot prep for the entire time, it sure is nice to have those first few days taken care of with healthy meals we all love. Breakfast are easy and quick(omelets, pancake, French toast, fruit….) lunches don’t always happen but I love to cook nice and healty-ish dinner meal we can all slow down together with.
Its special to me/us to get out into the middle of beautiful no-where and still eat very well.
Planning and pre keeps us going nonstop, even when we don’t know where we’ll land next.
