This weekend we enjoyed the great outdoors! We camped at McCormick’s Creek State Park and thoroughly enjoyed it. We made the traditional hotdogs and s’mores of my childhood – no camping trip would be complete without them! We also had pies made in our pie irons. We made burrito pies – tortillas, refried beans, cheese, and salsa cooked over the fire and peach pies – buttered bread, peach pie filling, and a couple of marshmallows cooked. Delicious! I wish I had pictures but keeping three young boys safe around the fire and just getting dinner completed took quite a bit of effort. 🙂
On the cherry front, I must share that I invested in a cherry pitter and haven’t looked back. If you like cherries, go buy one…you will not regret it. It makes cherry dishes so much easier and we all enjoy eating them pit-free – it’s not only more polite but it’s less messy!
We’ve been enjoying things from our garden! Recently I made a garden-fresh pasta that included summer squash, basil and fresh tomatoes! We all loved the vegetables, parmesan garlic cream sauce, onion, and bacon over the sun-dried tomato pasta. It was a use-what-we have kind of night and it worked!
