Back from Camping

Spent a week in Lassen National Monument and Park, where we did a little cooking over the camp fire. Sadly, I did not get pictures of everything we cooked, however, there were these.

Fire roasted Triscuits with cheddar cheese...
Just a slab of cheddar cheese on a Triscuit cracker, roasted on a rack and covered with aluminum foil to reflect some heat to assist in melting the cheese. Foil or metal reflectors are invaluable for cooking over a campfire, the ability to reflect heat allows more control and direction over heat distribution.
Here is a shot of the rack of cheesy Tricuits cooking under foil, and yes, that is a string cheese stick being roasted. Simple treats over the fire after a day of hiking can be so much better than when munched at home.
Life is a bowl of cherries, organic pitted cherries on the way to a cherry maple cobbler that is...
Most everything you eat here is gonna taste better than at home.


  1. You are just a hop, skip, and a jump from this...

  2. That looks like a rough neighborhood;)

    I love campfire food and that picture of the fire ring makes me think about our fun times camping in Cades Cove.

    Glad that you had fun and didn't have any bear attacks!
