What do you eat rafting?

What do you eat camping?

One sees quite the variety of foods camping. My Mom and I pull out all the stops. On our last trip to the Kern River this weekend, we prepared quite a feast, in my opinion.


As soon as we got to camp we got a fire going and our dutch oven heating up.

Into the dutch oven went some heirloom beans, which we had prepped the night before at the house.


In there you see some onions, bacon and plenty of beans.


We had some delicious, juicy tri-tip.


As well as some corn and grilled ciabatta, onto which we rubbed fresh tomatoes, in the spanish manner.

The beans turned out pretty delicious, if not gorgeous. They developed this amazingly deep, delicious flavor that was quite rich. I really loved them.


And what is a camping trip without some lucious, delicious berry cobbler, cooked in a dutch oven over the dying embers of a fire?


While we did need to get out quite early, that didn’t stop my scout master Ken and I from whipping up some breakfast burritoes.


And that was the trip! We had an amazing time and the food was, of course, amazing.

    That looks absolutely fantastic! Cast iron dutch oven nestled into an open fire? Yum.
