Camping Food

With all the luxuries that the R.V.'s of today offer, we sometimes forget about great classic camping food. Who wants hot dogs every night when you have a full kitchen and running water? I'll tell you who. I do! Not just any hot dog though. I want a European Weiner with grated cheese, hot banana peppers, pickles and chips. Yes...chips. And while I'm on the subject of chips, you can't forget a good old chip sandwich.

I can remember my first chip sandwich as if it was yesterday. I was camping with a friends family at Fish Lake outside of Quesnel. We were in the camper making our lunch unsupervised, so it didn't take long for us to add our own little twist!

It was a weekend of many firsts, including catching and cleaning my own fish. No one told me about the 'you clean what you catch' rule until after I had brought in my haul!

As I look out my window, I can see the sun setting over a frozen lake, but that doesn't mean that I can't have a little taste of summer! I think that tonight I will introduce my own children to the chip sandwich. Throw in a side of watermelon, a cold beverage and I can almost feel the sun! -R
