Tasty Travel Series: Camping at Cascade Lake

We had a great time camping for two days at Cascade Lake in Little River (close to Brevard, NC).

The kids enjoyed the bike trails, swimming lake with the beach area and fishing.




I am able to spend more time with my family and less time in the camper kitchen by taking along some of our favorite freezer food.

We had 5 minute tacos… (cooked in batches at home and frozen)

hotdogs (microwaved them because we had a bad hail storm the first night and we weren’t able to get the propane hooked up for dinner.

But they were still good with the slaw and salad I made ahead.


Everyone ate the freezer breakfast wraps I made ahead


Our neighbor had a primitive way of cooking his steak, which smelled wonderful…

Thegrilled Italian veges and grilled pizza I made on frozen naan was perfect after a long swim.

And no one goes camping without the make ahead smore box.

Dark chocolate smores anyone?

Camping the easy, relaxing way with freezer food.

    I love this idea. I froze a couple meals the last time we went camping and it was so helpful. I froze sloppy joe meat and chili. It just took a few minutes to warm up and we could eat.
