Do you have to compromise the quality of your meal when you set out into the woods? Nope. Sure cracking open a can of baked beans is the easiest way to eat when on the move. Please don’t see the can of beans as a limitation, it’s just the beginning of what you can eat around a camp fire.
Recently I took a quick camp trip to Ojai with friends. Ojah is rich in farm land and we took advantage on the way to the camp site. Be sure to wash the oranges that are growing over the fence. You can not take oranges that are not on public land, but if nature pushes them into public land, well, then you take what nature has given you and you. Just be sure to wash it before you sink your teeth into it incase that farm uses pesticides. The great part about an orange is the skin comes off completely so the fruit itself is clean, so we stocked up. Wouldn’t have been as easy with apples or cherries.
Oh yea, we also found avocados
I have a coleman stove it was $65.00 and it is everything you will ever need. 1 Burner and 1 Grill top that converts to a second burner. All the comforts of your kitchen stove on a picnic table.
Breakfast was cheesy eggs, bacon, english muffins, coffee, and a fruit salad (notice the oranges). Camping for a short period of time gives you the opportunity to take a cooler. Never the case if you are backpacking.
Really no trick to this meal. Whisk eggs, fry bacon, brown english muffins. I wish I were fancy for cooking it in the woods but its actually just your classic American breakfast- made on a portable stove… Yes! You can do this too, and you should. Get outside.
