In My Kitchen – November 2015

Good riddance October, you were an insanely busy month!  All right, we had lots of fun last month even during all the madness.  It’s funny to say, but I think with Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up our schedules are actually slowing down.  It’s time to join Celia over at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial for another roundup of In My Kitchen posts, forcing me to remember some of what happened during this crazy month.

Lets start with our outdoor kitchen.  We went to visit my parents and one night we went camping.  It was gorgeous weather, though a little chilly at night.  The leaves were changing and the colors were beautiful.  This time Josh set up a proper camp fire and we were able to hang the pot for cooking.  We got a new larger pot which made cooking for the family easier.

Dinner was red beans and rice.  It was entertaining to see us in the store, reading all the package labels for the lowest sodium and highest fiber content!  Can you tell we don’t buy package meals much?!  To that we added fresh zucchini, onion, okra and smoked sausage.  We also made a pumpkin camp cake for dessert and hot apple cider.  Breakfast was hot chocolate and oatmeal.  All in all a good camping trip, except of course for me hardly getting any sleep.
