One of the things about camping is having to remember EVERY LITTLE THING, especially if one is PRIMITIVE CAMPING. And let me tell you, I know a thing or five hundred three about forgetting stuff on a camping trip. So when Caitlin and Becky remembered absolutely every thing we needed to feast in the wilderness I knew this was no small feat.
First off: Drinks to the stream. No potable water so all that had to be hauled in too.
Then a kitchen/ seating area was set up.
Ten blocks of ice and six bags of chipped ice were bought to keep food for fifteen cold for a weekend.
Becky created these delectable onions by placing them whole in aluminum foil with a little salt, pepper, and a big old pat of butter and a drizzle of concentrated consommé on the top. Seal completely and throw into the coals.
Shish kebobs were marinated in Ziploc bags using store bought marinade
Whole yellow potatoes were tightly sealed with aluminum foil and tossed on the coals.
And fresh caught fish were seasoned with the garlic from the pickled asparagus jar and fried.
And oh my, fresh tomatoes with fresh soft mozzarella.
We even had small ripe plums on a hiking trail that the bears would soon be wanting.
The food made us so fat and full that we could have just taken a nap right then.
