Is anyone going camping over Spring Break?
We (kind of) are. We’ll be at the lake, but with all the modern conveniences.
I’ll be honest. I wasn’t going to worry about writing a post today since I’m determined to get my taxes done this week. (Yikes!)
But then I saw this coupon for Bisquik and it reminded me of the BEST pancakes I’ve ever eaten.
We camped (like, in a tent and everything) over Thanksgiving break in 2011. My leaky air mattress and a rainy night made it a less-than-exciting sleeping experience, but the breakfast Hubby cooked over the campfire the next morning made up for my misery.
The keys to a successful breakfast while camping is to keep it simple. Bisquick’s shake and pour pancake batter was perfect because you simply add water and pour it straight from the container. We also had deli ham as our meat because it was quicker and easier to work with than bacon or sausage.
And the coffee. Oh my word, the coffee. I have no idea what makes it so fabulous when done over a campfire, but we still talk about how awesome that coffee was.
Just bring SEVERAL thick hot pads. Cast iron pots and campfire coffee pots get HOT over a campfire. Duh, I know.
Now I’m thinking we’ll have to come with a way to cook breakfast over a campfire over spring break.
What are your plans?
Oh. The coupon links and the Amazon link? Those are my affiliate links, of course!
