Camping Menu Roundup



This past weekend we went camping at the Bellefonte KOA, it was amazing. The bathrooms were very clean, the cabins were super comfortable, and they had so many fun activities for the kids. We tie dyed shirts, went on a hay ride, watched a movie,  played with bubbles, and so much more.



I was super upset that we were unable to afford to go to the beach this year, mainly because I had talked to "C" about it throughout the year planning on going. She was so excited to build sand castles and go in the water. We ended up going to a local "beach" called halfway dam that I wrote a post about here. So she was satisfied, but I still had that mom guilt. So we decided that it was much more suitable for our budget to go camping.


We wanted to get a cabin because "A" is so little she wouldn't do well in the heat, and she has recently been having problems with breathing so the humidity wouldn't help that either.



The fact that the cabin had air conditioning surprised me, I am used to camping at state parks and they have a lot fewer amenities. This place had a pool, a TV, microwave, and fridge! Like camping but not roughing it. So, of course, being the planner I am, I went looking through Pinterest to find some wonderful recipes. To put together a menu. If you would like to just pin the fruits of my labor the here's the board https://www.pinterest.com/MamaoftheDrama/camping/




Thursday


  • Breakfast Burritos are always a hit in my house. You basically make a scramble and put it in a burrito shell. Super easy to make and can be frozen and reheated easily. 
  • Sandwiches I got a great idea from EasyPeasyPleasy 

  • Pizza you can make a frozen one on the grill, we had to do this with my soy free dairy free pizza. We also had regular pizza for the hubby and "C". Recipe for that from AThriftyMom

Friday

  • Breakfast Sandwiches from IWishYouDry these were absolutely delicious!
  • Walking Tacos you can find multiple different recipes for these. You just make taco meat ahead of time freeze it and then warm it up on the camp stove there. Buy individual packs of Doritos, Fritos, or Tortilla Chips and add the taco meat. Then add fixings of cheese, onions, peppers, etc. anything your heart desires on your taco. If you need more of an idea I pinned a recipe from MyLitter 
  • BBQ Chicken and Baked Potatoes from Diethood 

baked potatoes are brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with salt then poked with a fork and baked for 1 hour at 350 ℉ then roast them over the fire for 15 minutes. 

Saturday

  • Pancakes you can just premix your favorite pancake batter and then put it in a clean ketchup bottle to squeeze onto your cast iron skillet or camping stove frying pan. 
  • Hotdogs with French Fry Foil Packs the hot dogs you can just put on your roasting forks and heat up over the fire. The french fries I got from TableSpoon
  • Sausage and Pepper Foil Packs with Corn the sausage and pepper packs are from ChelseasMessyApron 

Sunday

  • Bacon Scramble I just put eggs in an old creamer bottle already scrambled with some water. Then you add your bacon, peppers, onions, and cheese. We used our camp stove to make this, I have seen other people use a cast iron skillet. 
  • Hamburgers on the Grill you can have your leftover chips from the walking taco as a side. 
  • One Pot Spaghetti this is another recipe that you can find a lot of different options for, we have a recipe that has no dairy or soy that we use often from MSPI Mama
