Camping meals

One final sketch before packing up to leave

I am certain we had the most elaborate kitchen of any other campers at the Niijima Camp-jo. We fed between 7 and 12 people per meal every day for a week. When the full compliment of our group was present, we had 4 camp stoves, two fires, and enough pots and pans to require a crew of four dish washers.

Our meals were spectacular--no instant noodles for us. From fruited pancakes to thai curry to daikon cakes to saffron chicken, we cooked up a storm (and in one, too). We ate three meals a day and there was still time for countless trips into town for shopping adventures. We know all the Niijima grocery stores.

Welcome back. I've missed your posts.

I hate that feeling of the last meal at camp. You've captured it well in the wiggly lines here, and the lone pot on the stove. It always makes me sad to pack up camp. (Except for that one week at Camp Louise!)

Welcome back - I missed you girls!

Don't forget the daily damper ration....
