Long Weekend

Another long weekend is upon us in Western Canada. What will you be doing? What will you be cooking or eating?

My plans involve a lot of salad, grilled meat, and time with family. Photos will follow next week... Until then, I head into today with a long list to accomplish and a large mug of espresso in my hand!

Camping & Cooking

Whenever we go camping, we take all the camping essentials and one of those is our camp stove. Okay, it's actually a "Camp Chef" two burner bbq, like this one:

We have a grill box that sits over one of the burners and that is where the grilling of meat and veg occurs.

On top of that, my husband has embarked on a weight loss journey, so I have been cooking nearly exclusively from his diet plan (with additions of starch, dairy, and fats for the kids). I have had to forge creativity in the midst of strict diet rules and it has been a challenge.

Here is what I made for dinner the other night...
