What I Have Learned from Camping

Keeping it REAL!

Paper plates and plastic forks a “MUST HAVE” in home renovation and camping!

All I can say is that I’m thankful I had parents that took me and my sisters CAMPING… A LOT!  If it were not for learning how to adapt in less than comfortable conditions, this entire DIRTY DIAMOND experience might just unravel me.

I think the hardest part about living in a renovation is the EATING part.   It seems every couple of hours I have someone asking me “What’s for breakfast?” What’s for lunch?” “What’s for Dinner?”  Funny thing about human beings…we get hungry like clock work.  I’m so tired of eating out. Sick of Sonic, Dairy Queen, even the sit down and be served restaurants.  I am sooooo ready to start cooking!  I crave eating healthy. I think my family feels the same way.

I do have a microwave, but I really don’t like microwave food.  Something about the texture that changes in the few minutes it spins within its walls.  The very best little gadget that I have at the moment is this griddle.  I have made pancakes, omelets, stir fry, quesadillas, grilled cheese sandwiches and I’m sure there is more I could try.  It seems kind of funny that I’m cooking it on top of my pretty little oven that is just DYING to be installed….(COME ON KITCHEN INSTALLATION!!)  Well at least it makes for a good counter-top for the time being.

Oh and one last thing, washing dishes is really hard when you don’t have a kitchen. So I have found myself on my hands and knees washing dishes in the bathtub. Yes, another “survival skill” you pick up while CAMPING…hand-washing in a tub of some sort…”THANKS MOM!”
