No matter if you’re a professional chef or just a single mother handling the household duties and the kids, food is the main staple of life. We all have the daily meals but sometimes constructing and laying out a meal game plan can be hard to figure out. First things first, the star of the meal. The star needs to be some great protein like a whole chicken, a succulent steak, a meaty filet of fish, or for all you veggies, some really flavorful beans or vegetarian casserole.
My husband and I just got back from our Summer vacation- a three-week road trip that took us through the California redwoods, the city of Portland, the Olympic national park in in northern Washington and down the entire Oregon Coast. We stayed with friends and family along the way, but we also did about a week and half’s worth of camping. One of our goals for any vacation we go on is to eat as well as we can (and we certainly did a lot of that in Portland!) So I take my camping meal prep seriously. It has to taste great of course, but it shouldn’t be to hard to cook or clean up after (I mean, I am on vacation here!). So, I put together a quick list of some tips to help you execute some great meals during your summer camping trips.
There's nothing more monumental and frightening than bringing home your first child. Nick was the most beautiful baby I had ever seen. I loved to watch him sleep, couldn't wait till he woke up and my husband and I fought over changing his diaper until the 50th diaper in 5 days was tossed. The kid pooped way too much and the novelty was over. Nick appeared to be like every other child in his first year.
When Nicholas was 16 months old I started noticing he wasn't talking, had no eye contact, was watching "Baby Mozart" out of the corner of his eyes, walking in the patterns of our oriental rug, lining his dinosaurs in perfect rows, couldn't stand to be touched and had difficulty with textures.
