There is nothing I love more than a good hot dinner when it is cold and I am sleeping in a tent. In order to enjoy making dinner in these conditions I always have a nice camp fire going before I even start to fix dinner. Then I use a camping stove to cook the food because trying to cook over a camp fire just takes too long.
My favorite dinner on these cold nights (any night to tell the truth) is Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese. Just looking at this picture makes me hunger even though I just had a salad for lunch and am sitting in my warm office in southern CA
When I am camping I like to keep the cooking really simple so I buy the soup already prepared, all I have to do is heat it up. Nordstrom has the best tomato soup I have ever eaten and you can buy it at their restaurant already packaged.
Another very important, perhaps the most important, food item for me on a camping trip is the coffee. I do love this coffee maker for my trips. It is easy to carry and easy to use. So when you wake up on a cold morning all you have to do is get the fire going and brew some coffee, relax and look at all the beauty nature has to offer. I of course would take the 50 oz coffer maker because I love my morning coffee and plenty of it.
These are just a few of my favorite camping things.
