Hello campers....Summer is here. Time to dust off the 'ol Coleman stove and head out of town. So far this year I have made a few forays into the woods. Last week we were at the top of the Beartooth Pass, outside of Yellowstone Park. Beautiful. But lets face it. We are really out there to eat. Nothing brings out an appetite like wandering around outside in a different place smacking bugs, asking tourist questions and getting grit where it doesn't belong. So I was going through my camping box, my portable kitchen and checking the contents. A list of necessities: Cast iron frying pan, 12" and 8" saute pans, kettle with lid, 2 and 4 qt pots w/lids, grater,wire whip, stainless steel bowl, spatula, ladle, slotted spoon, rubber spatula, French knife, paring knife, boning knife, steel, cutting board, can opener, coffee dripper and filters, 3 plastic tubs for my triple sink, plates, cups, glasses, bowls, flatware, dishrack, towels and napkins, tableclothes, candles, pepper grinder, wine glasses and corkscrew,aluminum foil and a few more odds and ends. All this fits in a plastic tub with tight-fitting lid to keep the dust out. Personally I think dining in the great outdoors is a real treat. And I don't think that I am too decadent. Let's face it. I leave my salad spinner at home.... How do YOU camp? Rustic, "reservation only" or Ramada?
