Home Sweet Home

Being ever so optimistic, I thought I’d be able to work on some recipes and get a post ready to go for today AND restock the pantry AND get all our camping gear and clothes cleaned, organized and put away… But alas, I am still working on it… Hoping to have my sun dried tomato basil recipe ready for Saturday. I hope that I still have readers by then. ;)

I wanted to share some of the camp cooking pictures, a few others shots of things we did and also a picture of the 200 pound black bear we attracted while making balsamic grilled chicken breasts the first night there!! I was TERRIFIED to say the least, but all she wanted was my hot chocolate… Thank goodness, because when we locked eyes, she was FOUR FEET away from me riffling through the food that was about to be put in the bear box. As I turned my head away from the food, she had ninja-ed into our camp site in total silence… all I heard was the food crate crashing to the floor. SCARY.

Lesson learned:
Use the bear box like a refrigerator!!! NEVER ever leave food out that you are not using, EVER. Period.

Oh my gosh that must have been so scary! Great pictures though. I am impressed by the campsite cooking!

I've canoed in the boundry waters twice in Canada, but thankfully never saw a bear - I'd have freaked too!

Love that mini stove - I haven't been camping in 20 years, looks like fun!
