Well hello. Yes I have found time to write a little entry. The road trip is awesome despite the weather dropping down to - 15 at some places. It is definatley a back to basics lifestyle from keeping warm to cooking. Everything has pretty much been cooked in one pan. I always take two cast iron pans with me, a dutch oven and a skillet. As we have been back road camping a lot of tinned food has come in useful. I have used tinned salmon to make the best fish cakes ever and my baked beans went down a treat served alongside grilled pork chops. Acorn squash baked with butter and honey was a delicious sweet treat too. When we go camping we long for good hearty warming meals and we sure have had a few.
