I have been asked what I chose to take on my honeymoon to eat. So, I decided to share our Honeymoon Menu with you.
Coming from a family of non-sandwich-lovers, we’ve become pretty creative when camping. What I took for Ryan and me is a pretty normal camping menu for my family. We normally take our hibachi grill but the Tishomingo cabin had a grill there, as well as a tiny kitchen.
Here’s our menu:
– Supper: Grilled Hamburgers (seasoned with lemon pepper and seasoning salt) with trimmings (mayo, mustard, ketchup, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, pickles, onions, burgers, buns), French Fries (I cut up the potatoes and baked them in the oven), Grilled Peaches (You can find the recipe here)
– Breakfast: Cinnamon Rolls (I made them from my sour dough bread dough), grits, sausage, fruit
– Lunch: Chicken Strips (leftover from the wedding), grapes, cheese cubes, bread (just sorta mix ‘n match lunch that day!)
– Supper: Hot Dogs (we grilled them on Sunday night), Chips – I know, real healthy!
– Breakfast: Just about the same as Monday
– Lunch: Leftover Hot dogs
– Supper: Grilled Chicken Breasts (marinated all day in low-fat Italian dressing, seasoned with lemon pepper and seasoning salt), Baked Potatoes, Grilled Shish Kabob Veggies (mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, bell pepper – works well to use leftovers from hamburger slicing on Sunday! – seasoned with lemon pepper and seasoning salt), Homemade Bread Sticks, S’mores
– Breakfast: About the same as before – but also had eggs and sweet bread a friend made us as a wedding gift
– Lunch: Sandwiches on the way out
We were hiking and such most days so I tried to make lunch really easy and breakfast and supper were more exciting. We had cookies, wedding cake and S’mores stuff around for desserts. I also tried to have MINIMAL leftovers since we had to pack everything left to take home.
Sometimes, my family will get po-boy style buns to make sandwiches with instead of just bread, and we’ve also taken the “sausage dogs” instead of hot dogs to make sausage po-boys (I’m trying to decide which would be healthier, sausage or hot dogs – I think neither maybe, but it’s fun when you’re camping!).
