Steak bites



We love a good steak on the grill, but when you are camping, it can be hard to cut a steak on paper plates or with dull knives. For that reason we decided to give steak bites a try and we haven’t gone back. When you cut the steak into cubes you can get that delicious caramelized flavor on every side of the steak. You can also prep it ahead and freeze which makes life even easier.

Ingredients:
  • 2 steaks (I used boneless ribeye because it was on sale, but you could use any cut)
  • 1 tbs. steak seasoning
  • 1 tbs. veg oil
  • 1 tbs. worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tbs. butter
To prep, cut beef into 1.5 inch cubes and mix with the rest of the ingredients except for the butter. From this point, you can freeze or marinate in the fridge. When you’re ready to cook you can put everything on the grill and cook for about 5-6 minutes, flipping every minute or two. I like to finish by melting the butter on top and mixing one last time. For a side, you can add a baked potato or mix with pasta. We used the last of our pre-made penne.

Camping Meal Planner #1

When we go camping on longer trips we like to make a meal plan. If we don’t, we inevitably forget something or eat out more than we should. I’m all about efficiency, so I try to choose meals that we can have leftovers for lunch or that can be turned into a new meal. I also try to prep and freeze as much as possible. I do them all the weekend before we leave and freeze them in a Ziploc bag to save space in the fridge. The most important thing about this tip is to freeze it flat so it saves space in the freezer and defrosts quickly. Monday Breakfast: Bacon, egg and cheese hash brown scramble Lunch: Italian pasta salad – delicious hard salami mixed with made-ahead penne, mozzarella and Italian dressing Dinner: Cheese-stuffed burgers – beef burgers stuffed with a square of white cheddar are frozen Tuesday: Breakfast: Pancakes and sausage Lunch: Leftover burgers Dinner: Fajitas – chopped bell peppers, onions and slicked chicken are mixed with taco seasoning and frozen flat.

Long-Weekend Meal Planner

We do a lot of long-weekend camping and while it's only a few days, we still like to mix it up with the food. This meal planner was made specifically for a beach trip with great local seafood, but if that isn't available where you are going, you could always bring frozen shrimp and make a different type of taco!  Thursday: Breakfast: bacon/pancake sticks Lunch: Ham and pimento cheese sammies Dinner:   Shrimp foil packets (corn red potatoes) Friday: Breakfast:   Egg and sausage rollups Lunch:   Shrimp salad sandwiches (from leftover shrimp) Dinner: Fish tacos Saturday:   Breakfast: Sausage and egg sammies Lunch: Hatch chile wrap s from Trader Joes Dinner: Pork BBQ (make ahead and freeze) and potato salad (from leftover shrimp boil) Sunday: Breakfast: French toast casserole (make ahead)  

Camper Hack #1: Command Strips

After our first trip in the camper I knew we needed to make some organizational updates. I am an efficiency expert and I want to make sure every square inch of space is utilized while still keeping a comfortable and homey feel. We made a few adjustments each trip and now we are planning our first big voyage for spring and I want to make sure everything is ready! The camper hack we are focusing on today: COMMAND STRIPS. They are your very best friend. And would you believe almost everything can be used with a command strip? Towel bars Toilet paper holders Storage containers Paper Towel holders Broom and cleaning supply holders The list goes on, and on, and on! Here are just a few of my favorite Command Strip items we have working now: The command strip key holder is a MUST for every camper. And this one with the container attached is awesome. We ended up using it so much that we also purchased a cell phone container to go next to it. This will be new for spring and
