To make this more of a family project, I asked Sophie and Husband to suggest meals they might like. Husband even went to far as to add his suggestions to a list of items and tasks he was typing out. He suggested barbecued chicken (good) and . . . casserole. WTF???
HUSBAND: Yes, casserole. I like your casseroles.
ME: And just what did you have in mind? Lasagna??
HUSBAND: That. And I thought maybe your moussaka. You could make it beforehand [a great idea because we know I have nothing else to do].
ME: Did you notice that I usually warm something like this up in an OVEN? Are we now bringing an OVEN? Or maybe I should use my MAGIC COOKING WAND.
HUSBAND: So maybe not casseroles then.
Here's what we're going to have (not necessarily in this order):
skillet corn bread, butter and honey
2. barbecued chicken w/herb and garlic rub
orzo with pesto*
3. hamburgers stuffed w/ basil and fresh mozzarella*
4. tacos: carne asada, Mexican cheese, onion, cilantro, salsa
5. grilled marinated chicken breasts
6. tacos: carnitas*, Mexican cheese, onion, cilantro, salsa
7. pasta puttanesca
8. grilled pizza: mozzarella, asiago, chevre, artichoke hearts, kalamata olives, prosciutto
And we usually have a green salad with all dinners.
* These items I have prepared and frozen.
ski house pannini sandwiches (cambazola, prosciutto, pear, arugula)
We'll take two coolers: the fridge and the freezer, the latter of which will be packed with dry ice. Honestly, I'm not trying to make things more complicated than they need to be, but I want to spend my vacation relaxing, hiking, etc., not grocery shopping. But I haven't done my final shop yet, and I'm open to suggestions. Any good camping menus out there?
