Camping Lunch TimeYou know you’ve got breakfast and dinners all planned as the big meals of the day. You fire up the stove in the morning with eggs, bacon and pancakes. And in the evening, do something special on the grill or Dutch Oven. But what about lunch? You don’t want to mess with the stove and want something light and easy. After all everyone’s off having fun and just want a quick bite to eat. A reader sent me a couple of quick and easy lunch recipes that I think are winners. Easy to make and no mess to clean up! ;-)

Camping for 2: A Romantic Valentine’s Day Campout

Valentine's Day CampingSaint Valentine was persecuted for marrying young couples against the king’s orders, helping many escape being drafted into war. The rich history behind this beautiful holiday has not been lost and can be shared in celebration of spring and love when you pamper your partner with a Valentine’s camping trip. This Valentine’s Day plan an exciting retreat in the fresh outdoors.

In order to painlessly plan your Valentine’s Day camping trip, be sure to keep three essential elements in mind; location, activity and gift. With these you can create a simple but comfortable environment that will add the intrigue you need to enjoy Mother Nature and make your partner happy.

Location: Be sure to research an area for camping that isn’t too far away from home but still requires a scenic drive into the countryside. Start by searching your state+camping on Google and then check each location’s website for park hours, amenities, restrictions, vegetation information and cost.

Once you’ve chosen your park, plan to adorn your lover with pleasant surroundings. A lush, padded mattress pad topped with satin sheets, loads of fluffy blankets, all complemented with red rose petals, is incredibly welcoming. Snacks and wine are also a must.

Little Known Ways To Save A Boring Campout

Girl Playing CheckersThe atmosphere is already set by the beautiful backdrop Mother Nature provides, the smell of the camp fire and whatever pleasurable foods you’ve prepared for the weekend. Want some easy recipes? But now what? The Camping Guy has some ideas for those camping moments when nothing seems to be going on.

The Obvious: Horse Shoes, Volleyball, Badminton, Card Games, Board Games and Croquet. These are all fun and engaging sports that anyone can be a part of. What makes them even better is how easily available and inexpensive they are. You can find them separately and in sets at any sporting goods store or retail location with a sporting goods section. A great selection of popular board games can be found at any toy or department store. The Camping Guy, however, suggests www.boardgames.com for cheap camp games delivered right to your door!

For The Family:
Hollywood Pictionary: With a large pad of paper and a hand full of pencils, each family member takes turns drawing their favorite Hollywood Stars. This is a great game for teams and giving away prizes like Electronic Hand Held Card Games, Portable Checkers, Uno, Game Balls.

Animal Antics: This is animal charades! Write the name of up to 50 animals, especially barnyard, onto small pieces of paper, fold them in half and put them in a bucket. After creating teams, have one person from each team blindly choose a paper and take turns acting out that animal’s behavior without making a sound. The opposing team members must guess which animal they are. The team who guesses the most correctly, wins!
