Anyway, back to the menu:
Arrived Monday a little after noon so only had an evening meal but it was terrific.
Grilled bacon and cheese hamburgers, cantaloupe, baked beans with bacon.
Dessert is a given.... roasted marshmallows and had smores.
Fresh fruit, donuts, milk, juice and coffee
Taco in a bag. Kids and adults love this. The old cast iron skillet gets pulled out and we made up the taco meat, set up a buffet with lettuce, tomatoes from my garden, pepper cheese and/or cheddar cheese, bags of taco chips, and taco sauce. I think this will be kept on our future camping menus for the simplicity of it and we all loved it.
Trout, fried potatoes, sliced heirloom Cherokee Purple tomatoes. It could not get any better than that. Every one got their fill of trout. Everyone had a whole trout and a couple people had 2. Eddie was the master chef and fried the trout with lemon and sliced garlic. Simple and beautiful.
Before Bedtime Snack
Used pie irons and the boys grilled apple pies with bread and frosted them with vanilla icing.
Brunch (slow to get goin' in the morning)
Pancakes, rope sausage, and homemade syrups (blueberry, strawberry and maple...I blogged them last week and Sal helped me make them).
Due to the heat (105 degrees at 5:00 PM) and predicted bad weather coming, we went into town and had Chinese and discussed whether to stay the night or head home. We decided to pack up and head home because of what the weather service was predicting.
Hit the road and ran into bad weather all the way home. I was really glad we had not stayed the night. Next year we will not make our reservations so much in advance so we know what the weather might be like.
Thank you God for the rain we needed so badly.
Appreciate nature and her bounty. Be happy and may God bless you and yours.

I've been to wrestling meets where they serve individual bags of chips and add taco ingredients on top making a taco bag to go. This could be used at a picnic or kids party. Use the taco flavored chips. Set up the crock pot with your meat and have a selection of toppings along with a bottle of sauce and you are good to go. Break up your chips a little before adding the toppings. Taco-in-a-bag saves on a mess and makes it fun food. Just serve with a plastic spoon so they can get all of it. It is great for camping trips also.
I also put out Scoop tortilla chips and my grandson likes to make mini tacos. They can pile them high with their favorite ingredients and have super tortilla chips.
Saylor loves to make tortilla chips. It is something we do most of our weekends together. He cuts up the corn tortilla with a kitchen scissors and I fry them in the cast iron skillet in oil until golden brown and crispy. Put on a paper towel and salt immediately. These are great when they are still warm. Top them with taco ingredients and they are super.
I'll share a few recipes for homemade seasoning and condiments:

|Tested the strawberry and the chocolate today and will be making blueberry and maple tomorrow. The recipe fits just perfect in these plastic squeeze bottle. I paid 98 cents for the bottles at Wal-Mart. I give it a thumbs up!|

- You can add raisins, cinnamon, and/or nuts to it.
- In serving it, you can top with fresh fruit like strawberries or raspberries.
- You can also melt in ½ cup of chocolate chips and make a chocolate pudding. Add them after you have incorporated the eggs.
- You can flavor the pudding with lemon for a lemon pudding. Add some orange extract and grated orange peel for orange tapioca.
- Serve with whipped cream or a chocolate drizzle on top or both.
- You can put a meringue on it and put it under the broiler to put a golden brown on your meringue.
- You can dust it with sugar and put it under the broiler to add a thick crust on it like Crème Brûlée.
- Add mint extract and a little green food coloring and maybe some mini chocolate chips for a chocolate mint tapioca pudding.
2 tsp. vanilla

Mix together and pour into pie crust. Bake 20 to 30 minutes. The pie is done when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out lightly coated. The top of the pie should be custardy in appearance and stick to your fingertip when pressed lightly.
