Packing Up

Today has been crazy getting packed up the weekend. We realized the camping boxes were not as organized as I thought so basically had to pull everything out and repack them. Then we still had to go grocery shopping, I had planned spaghetti for a dinner because I know in the past I found a jarred sauce that didn’t have sugar, but either they changed the recipe or I was just blind today. So I had to add in making a quick sauce before we go. I had also planned on making some cookies to take with us, but not sure I will have time to make them.

We are trying out a new campfire popcorn that I found, I am excited to try it because with Captain’s sugar allergy we can’t do s’mores but have found that popcorn is fun over the fire (or camp stove) but, jiffy pop is so expensive and not as healthy as making your own. Here is what we are trying:

Hands-On Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Serves 1


2 tablespoons popcorn kernels
2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
aluminum foil


  1. Place the popcorn and oil on an 18-inch square of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Seal the edges to form a loose pouch, leaving room for the kernels to pop. Tie a corner of the pouch to a stick with a piece of string. Shake over a fire until popped.

Also here is the hammock that we got and so far we love it, easy to set up and very comfortable. As a matter of fact Captain finds it very calming and actually did all his homework in it last night without giving me any problems at all. And that is a miracle in itself!

Three hours left before we leave, still have to finish packing up and making sure everything is ready for the house sitter, so she can find all the chicken food and everything else 🙂

I will tell you all about our adventures when we get back so till then have a great weekend!
