We ate very well this weekend! Rob and I don't normally excel at packing food for camping trips. We're prone to not liking what we've brought and going for pizza instead. Having to carry everything we wanted in for four miles made us focus and plan our meals. If you're going backpacking soon, here are two easy recipes to bring along:
Rob's Backpacking Pancakes
Krusteaz oat bran cinnamon pancake mix (my new favorite!)
Freeze-dried Crunchies blueberries
Mix the pancake batter with water and blueberries. Wait 10 minutes for the mixture to expand and turn purple from the berries. Serve hot off the pan dipped in maple syrup.
Emily's Smoked Salmon Pasta
Foil package of smoked salmon
Farfalle (bowtie) noodles
1 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese
salt, pepper, olive oil and paprika
Cook the noodles and drain. Mix the smoked salmon into the noodles with olive oil and spices. Put back on the heat until everything is well mixed and hot. Pour into bowls and top with the Parmesan cheese.
We also took freeze dried mango, salt and pepper rice crackers, sport beans, tortilla soup, chocolate chip cookies and saturn nectarines. Yum! Do you have a favorite backpacking recipe?
