At first, I kind of freaked out and decided there was no way that we could actually feed me all weekend while living out of a cooler and cooking over a campfire but I eventually calmed down enough and started doing some research. And by research I mean looking at Pinterest for inspiration. I finally made up a meal plan that both Dan and I were comfortable with and I got to work on it.
Friday night dinner was a quick easy meal of sausages, baked potatoes and grilled veggie kabobs. Simple and yet tasty.
Saturday morning breakfast was cereal with blueberries, another simple one and easy to pack too. We had pre-measured our cereal into individual baggies and each had our own mason jar of milk. Worked like a charm.
Lunch on Saturday was sandwiches, veggies and hummus.
Saturday supper, delicious hamburgers! This one took a little more planning since I had to pack some condiments and toppings for us but it was totally worthy it and oh so tasty.
I'm pretty sure we were the envy of our neighbours. Maybe not but I like to think so.
Sunday breakfast was amazing! We went all out and had scrambled eggs, bacon and bannock. The bannock was the total hit and is going to be my new go to camping food.

If you want to make this bannock yourself, I found the recipe from this website and it worked really well with the gluten free flour I used. I highly recommend giving it a try on your next camping trip or backyard fire.
We also had snacks of chips, granola bars, apples, trail mix and fruit cups and we were never hungry, so I think it was a success.
I learned some stuff from this camping trip and will do a few things differently next time. Like figure out a way to keep all our food colder for most of the weekend. Any tips from anyone on that? Or any other recipes or meal ideas you would like to share? What's your favourite thing to cook over an open fire?
