Pancakes from Scratch
We will bring along the dry ingredients for the pancakes in a ziploc bag, and then add the eggs and milk while we are there. Even while camping it is still easy to make pancakes from scratch and they are so much better than boxed pancakes.
1 cup white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oatmeal
2 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
Liquid ingredients to add right before we make them:
2 cups milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
(if you're making these at home you can also add 1 tsp vanilla, we won't bother this time)
I will make this recipe for broccoli salad.
We will try baked apples as a fireside treat. Slice apples, sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon, and then wrap in foil and cook over the fire until the apples are soft.
We also like bringing a big container of cut up vegetables. I am bringing along this dip instead of using a jar of salad dressing:
1 1/2 cup of Hellman's Mayonnaise (light mayo and Miracle Whip cannot be substituted, it will be too runny)
1 tsp dry mustard
2 tsp curry powder
salt and pepper
Mix together, and keep cool.
So although we won't be completely healthy while camping, we are making a few smart choices along the way.
This is two years ago, same campground we are going to this year.
