WIAW #28: Camping Eats

It’s Wednesday…which means it’s not only Hump Day but it’s also What I Ate Wednesday!

I’m pretty excited to share with you something completely different for me – today, I’m sharing food from Saturday, when B and I went camping! That’s right, all of these meals are from my time in the woods.

For breakfast, B made some bacon and eggs over the campfire. Plus some freshly “toasted” bread. And grapes. Not a bad way to start the day!

We took a pretty long hike and by the time we stopped for lunch, i was starving!  We ended up stopping along the route and eating on a rock with a great view. Bread, cheese, veggies and meat sticks for lunch. Easy, and packed in a backpack!


Here’s a pic of our lunch WITH the view:


Dinner was once again over the campfire. While B was preparing it, I snacked on some more veggies and cheese and grapes. Come on, you didn’t think we ate ALL of that for lunch, did you?

And dinner was SO perfectly cooked. I don’t know how he did it, but we had potatoes, onions and steak – all made over the campfire. Such a good dinner!

Oh and don’t worry – we also roasted marshmallows over the fire for dessert. I had two…or four or five.


Some questions for you:

  1. Do you like s’mores?
  2. What is a typical “camping” meal for you?
  3. How do you like your steak? I like mine rare 🙂

  1. What a beautiful view from your lunch spot. Nothing beats a campfire when you are camping. Your meals look like gourmet camp food…yum! I remember having this tripod toast device that would toast bread over the fire or stove. It was a go to for breakfast or dinner sandwiches for easy camp meals.

  2. I ❤ camping food. This looks like a great trip. I think I'm with Jessie. I'd like to tag along to learn something from you about camping food. I do love s'mores. I'm hoping to go backpacking next week, or at least send my brother and sister backpacking, so I will have to get really creative. The hard thing about backpacking is that you have to pack light, energy dense food. Hmm….
