Good evening! Well, camping was a success. At least, we all lived through it. I didn't get to take many pictures, helping to prepare meals for about 14 adults and 10 small children didn't leave a lot of time to take pics! It was crazy! But we did have the usual camp fare, hamburgers and hot dogs, salads, sandwiches, and spaghetti and meatballs! That's right, this group of people were organized enough to make spag and balls for dinner on Sunday night, WITH garlic bread AND this beautiful tomato and pearl bocaccini salad...
But I can't complain. We had gorgeous weather up by beautiful Georgian Bay, the water was warmish, everyone swam and lounged on the beach. I read several food mags and started pouring through Nigel Slater's 'The Kitchen Diaries" which I was entirely chuffed to buy recently at my beloved the Cookbook Store, AND, I even began reading this old Kim Stanley Robinson book called 'The Memory of Whiteness" that I recently purchased. It can't be beat, no way.
I also brought along some lovely Ontario Pinot Grigio that was tetra packed. It was good, and gave the adults a nice drink to sip while waiting for the water to boil.
Also... on our way to go camping, the traffic was quite awful, so we decided to stop at McDonald's for breakfast. Now I used to loooooove McD's but have given it up this year in my challenge to stop eating so much fast food. And now I find, after only having four or so times in the past 8 months, I am not crazy about it. But I digress.
I love the food pornographer's blog, and she has written on many occasions about her love for the McD's Big Breakfast, which has apparently met it's demise down under. So when I saw it on the menu, I had to order it! Here it is...
It was excellent.
More to come.
