Let’s Talk About Camping

It’s that time of year again where I start getting excited about the beach and camping. We will head down to the coast sometime in March to Summer-ize our camper. We will hook it up, flush the lines and stock it with linens. We usually wait until after we move our clocks up an hour so we can enjoy more daylight in the afternoons.

Right now we have a 34 ft Puma Camper with a large slide, two bedrooms and full bath. We love it but we are thinking about selling it for something else. I want a front kitchen with stand alone table and chairs and he wants a back bathroom and two recliners instead of a single sofa like we have now. 
We plan to stay within 28 to 34 ft. depending on the layout. But all this will not happen until at least after this year. 

We keep our camper down at the beach because we love the campground we stay at and do not want the hassle of pulling it with down there and back several times a year. We are 200 miles away. 

BUT I WANT...a small camper to keep at home to use for a weekender at other campgrounds around here or the mountains a time or two. Then I start selfishly thinking about myself and what I like. I like small cozy places, so when I think of tiny campers, I start dreaming of one. I mean, if it’s pretty outside, we never say inside the camper anyway except to sleep. We set up chairs outside to enjoy our day. Nick would do a pop up camper but he is not interested in hearing my other ideas. Below are a few for example. But again they are just some of the fun dreams in my head. 

I love these little Scamps.

I have never been Tent Camping but if I did, I would want it to be like this.

However, I do have a SUV so this would work perfect for me.
I would love to get all the cozy figured out.

And to be on the safe side incase of bad weather, is always a way to combine both the suv and tent.

The.first thing people start thinking about when you mention camping in tents, cars or mini campers is “where do you use the bathroom?”. Well, I’m only thinking as far a just a night stay somewhere and I know how to squat in the woods, but in all seriousness, they do make porta potties.

But if you really want to rough it...There are always the DIY way.

So see, I’m easy to please.
All my husband has to do is say “let’s go camping outdoors” and I could come up with some cheap ideas.
Don’t get me wrong though. I like luxury, but I’m also poor.

Oh wait.... I just thought of something...
I have one of these screen house tents in my attic right now. 


Maybe I can get Nick to do some back yard camping this summer.
Just maybe. 

Two Ingredient Bread Sticks

Here I go again with the “two ingredient” recipes. But seriously, that’s all it takes to make simple bready things. The two ingredients are plain Greek yogurt and self rising flour. No eggs, no milk and no shortening.

I have used this recipe to make pretzels, flatbreads and bagels. They all turned out delicious. What makes the difference is what goes on top. It’s crazy how it takes on the flavor of what it meant to be use for.


The other day I was having soup and salad and wanted some sort of bread stick to go with it, so I grabbed my yogurt and flour and made a dough.
I divided the dough into four pieces. With each piece of dough, I rolled into snake stick shapes and placed them on a lined cookie sheet and baked them for about 12 minutes. 

2 ingredient bread sticks.
•1/2 cup self rising flour.
•1/2 Cup plain Greek Yogurt.

-Bake 425 for 10-15 minutes.
-Brush with Butter (or garlic butter).
Makes four 6 inch sticks. Only 63 calories each.

I love how they turned out. They had the same texture as any other bread stick you get from a restaurant. It was the perfect portion with my lunch.

These bread sticks are not only easy to make, they are also on the healthy side of things. 
Each stick is only 63 calories so its less than a slice of bread and a whole lot better. I will be making more of these as they are now my favorite.
