My family went bike camping for Memorial Day weekend. I wasn’t sure what we would do about cooking as space for gear was limited but it all worked out perfectly!
We found ripe local strawberries the first day, roasted potatoes over a campfire which we used the next morning for hash browns (see a old post about how to make them here), indulged in s’mores and had delicious Fish and Chips for our final dinner.
The kids had a ball and three days of life outdoors was fantastic! Go camping this summer and make great memories with your family.
We go camping every year over Memorial Day weekend. It is challenging to feed 6 people for three days with a camp stove and an open fire, but every year I am amazed and the great food that we create. This year I learned a new trick! We roasted potatoes in the fire one night in foil (thank you Jackie!) and let them cool overnight. Then I cubed the cooked potato and fried it in olive oil with some seasoned salt and some pepper. They were the best hash browns ever! With some scrambled eggs we had a breakfast that got us all ready for another day of running around, hiking, swiming and enjoying the outdoors!
Noah (10) and Eitan (8) gobbled these up. Lilian (5) liked the eggs best and Jethro (2) ate them both. My husband liked them so much I made a second batch!
