A few weeks ago, on a perfect early-summer weekend, we went camping. Well, we went glamping, which, in case you don't know, is "glamorous camping." Why was it glamorous, exactly? It wasn't the space, because yes, we were in the middle of the woods with all that entails - bugs, wildlife, heat, bugs. It wasn't the bathroom arrangements, which we won't talk much about here other than giving a huge shout-out to the 3-minutes-for-a-quarter-hot-water-shower that could be considered glamorous to some, we suppose. It wasn't the activities, for while we did a little hiking and kayaking, mostly we hung around the campsite. One of us did manage to look perfect almost the entire weekend (make up, hair, shaved legs and all) (and no, it wasn't either of us).
No, what made it glamping was that everyone on the trip is a foodie. The two of us, A Couple in the Kitchen, as you know us. Foodies. Chef L and her boyfriend D. Foodies. And the guy T, who once worked at Williams-Sonoma and quite possibly has the most fancy camp-cooking equipment anyone could own, and his girlfriend J. Foodies. All of us foodies.
If we must...
Now we are going to show you photos of some the food we created and devoured that weekend. In the woods. At the campsite. Pinkie swear.
Please forgive the quality of the photos (#camping) but feel free to drool (#glamping).
