The e-mail questions and lists are flying around today among us and three other families. The burning subject is who’s bringing what food for camping under the stars on the Fourth of July. We must have s’mores of course, and who’s in charge of which dinner or what breakfast?
Some of our favorites include marinated steaks, grilled corn on the cob, and spinach salad with fresh strawberries. And we always love home-baked treats people bring along. When the frenzy of planning is over, we truly relax. Camping brings us back to olden days of communal cooking, when there was no TV and no texting (can you imagine!?). We’ll simply pitch our tents, gather around the campfire, cook and eat and tell stories.
Happy Fourth to all of our Cooking With Friends members–we hope you have a wonderful celebration with your friends and families, and take some time to kick back and enjoy each other.
