Friday Favorites: A Summer Camping Trip

Happy Friday!! And even happier Friday of a long weekend πŸ™‚

This week has been on and off sun and rain, and then more sun and rain!

Somehow its sunny during the day while I’m at work and then in the evening it rains like crazy. We’re talking thunder, lightening, hail… the works.

So! I’ve been reminiscing about warmth and our summer vacation a few weeks ago; especially our camping trip.

Basically this whole summer has been rainy but somehow we managed to plan a camping trip at just the right time and avoided rain… until the last day just as we were leaving, so it worked out perfectly!

imageΒ We bought these extra comfy chairs that can recline, and then basically spent the entire time reading, eating, and going for walks. Talk about the perfect few days!

We cooked everything over the fire, which I was super proud of us for!

Breakfasts were the best: coffee, bacon and even monkey bread, all made over the fire! Yum!image

Camping = relaxing. Nothing beats the peace and quiet.image

Here’s hoping for sun this weekend!

A Sweet Treat For Your Tuesday: Campfire Cones

Well. It’s summer time!! YAY!!

Which means camping… or atleast campfires!

And in my books campfires = s’mores

This year for our camping trip we decided to try something a bit different when in came to the s’mores.

About a month or two ago my husband showed me a picture of these icecream cones stuffed with chocolate and marshmallows, and that idea stuck in my head so I decided to give it a try!

Here’s what you need:

  • Icecream cones (I went for waffle cones because they are way better than plain cones πŸ™‚ )
  • Chocolate of your choice
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Any other fun fillings
  • Tinfoil

You can make so many different types of these campfire cones. I made four different kinds: reeses cups, oreo, m&m, and classic s’more.

It’s super simple. Take one waffle cone add in the fillings you would like… marshmallows, chocolate, etc. Then wrap the cone up with tinfoil! Done!

image

Take your pre-wrapped cones with you camping and set them on the grill of a fire pit for 5ish minutes (or until the marshmallows and chocolate are melted). And enjoy!!!

Yum!! These are a great twist on the classic s’more πŸ™‚ And not to mention a whole lot less sticky to eat!

Happy Tuesday!
