camping 101: memorable meals.

Monday, June 24, 2013

Over the years taco salad has solidified itself as a Knol family favourite and even comes camping with us now. I typically make the filling ahead of time - following this recipe [with a few adaptations*] - and then I'll reheat over the camping stove or fire. I didn't think my 10 minute taco salad recipe could get any easier, or tastier, until the "walking tacos" pin came into my life.

walking whaaa? 

exactly.

how is it that 30 year old me only learned about the beautiful marriage between taco salad and snack size bags of Doritos a few weeks ago?! all you do is cut the top off a mini bag of Doritos [or Fritos] spoon in your toppings, shake vigorously and serve with a fork.

shut the front door right?


Unless I host a future Mexican themed party, I've decided to reserve our newfound 'tacos in a bag' recipe for camping trips only. I think it'll make them all the more special and delicious [just like my annual Pirate cookie glutton fest].

We tried a bunch of different Pinterest camping recipes including: campfire orange cinnamon rolls [epic fail], ham & swiss campfire loaf [tastebud worthy], digestive cookie s'mores [oh em gee YES!] and of course our banana boat tradition courtesy of the MacMillan's.

Our Father's Day weekend camping adventure was as memorable as our Pinterest menu. Gabe had marshmallows for breakfast one morning, Saige had her first official bike accident, I fell more in love with cherry whiskey, Trev got some fishing in and the boys kicked the girls' asses in ladder golf. I gotta say I'm kinda obsessed with puttering along the shoreline and gawking at all the million dollar lakefront properties - one of the infinity pools has a patio umbrella larger than our house!

And with #casaknol taking up the first 2 pages of our honeydew list, I'm not sure how much camping we'll get in this summer. We can't even backyard camp since what's-left-of-the-lawn is littered with random building materials.

Anyways I have MUCH to fill you in on, but for now I'll leave you with some snaps from our outdoorsy weekend.


* in case you were wondering, I use pork & beans instead of red kidney beans and salsa in lieu of the chili sauce #yumma

Love these ideas. I don't have the courage to take our kiddos camping yet...maybe if we get a pop-up camper next year or something. I will definitely keep these ideas in mind when we do decide to go! Thanks for sharing. Oh, btw, I was thinking of you with the whole blogging while back at work after mat leave. I only go back at the very end of August and I'm not blogging regularly now. Could be a challenge!!!
