I am so, so, so very grateful for the opportunity to go camping, and I LOVE to plan camping trips!

Getting ready for our first trip of the season, I'm thinking of adding a few candles to the packing. I have a few LEDs from the thrift store. If it's windy, these will work better than flame candles:

I dug out the fire starters to see what we have left & what we still need. Three left over from last year with a bunch of matches, kept safe and dry in a Folgers container:

I STILL have the yarn crafts from 2 years ago, when we had the best decorated site!

Certainly there will be a yarn bag coming with us to camp this year! As well as drawing supplies, bird books, tree books, and The Fellowship of the Ring. Last summer was the summer of Harry Potter. This will be the summer of The Lord of the Rings. I'm not sure what could be better than nature, campfires, books & yarn all together on a trip!

Making a meal plan right here:

Day 1:
Dinner - Tin foil Packs: Sausages, Broccoli, Cheese, Corn

Day 2:
Breakfast - Pie Iron Sausage Biscuits (photo from the Duluth trip last year)

Lunch - Something like this (photo from Williams Sonoma):
Or this:

Dinner - Pie Iron Sandwiches, Cabbage Salad (shredded cabbage, corn, chickpeas, lime juice, salt...maybe some sweetener like truvia, maybe some slivered almonds)

Day 3:
Breakfast - Muffin Pan Eggs from Vien's Kitchen (I would scramble, though, with poblanos, sausage, cheese, broccoli, onion flakes)

Lunch - Cold Sandwiches (so as not to start another fire), Carrots, Hummus, Cabbage Salad
Dinner - at home

Chips & Salsa
Nuts & Raisins

Coffee & Cream, Tea, Ecodrink, Almond Milk
