Well camping last week was super fun, although I wouldn’t really call it camping. There wasn’t any electricity, but there was running water coming directly from the lake and a propane powered stove and refrigerator. The cabin was on an island in the middle of a lake in northern Maine, and even though the water was pretty chilly, we all managed to go in 2 or 3 times.
It was really beautiful and peaceful. We got used to the fact that there was no internet, but once we got back we all did a dash to our computers, only to find out our internet wasn’t working again. ugh.
We went kayaking and canoeing around the island and around the lake to learn some history of the land.
Don’t forget the s’mores!
The burnt ones are the best. 😀
Since there was no electricity, we made percolated coffee. It was the best coffee I have ever had and I plan on buying a percolator in the near future. I love this mug too; it represents my life so well. haha
On our way back to camp, I had this subway salad. Unfortunately they do not sell tofu pups or laughing cow cheese, so I had to add those. We saw about 3 cars on the road for the first hour of our drive, and we were all in culture shock when we entered our town with a population of approximately 1000 people. haha.
Basically, once you have been in northern Maine for a while, you start to not care about what you look like, hence the hat.
After seeing the beautiful sunrise over the lake, not to mention to gorgeous full moon the night before, I have been getting up earlier. Unfortunately the two days this has happened it has been raining. They were both treadmill days. I am never too psyched to go on our treadmill because its pretty loud, skinny, and is located in the garage. At least I figured out how to hook up some speakers to my laptop. I think the neighbors and surrounding towns know which movies I watch, but I can still barely hear anything over the treadmill.
On a different note, last night’s dinner was s tasty. Have you ever tried roasting an acorn squash? Mmm its been a favorite around here.
Cookie dough quest bars have also been a favorite. I really want to try making some recipes with these, so what would you like to see? Maybe coconut bark? Ice cream sandwiches? cupcakes? There are countless ideas on Pinterest if anyone wants to check them out; we will try to make anything!
I’ll leave you with this awesome photo of me while I was cooking dinner last night. Maybe this is why my creations never look as appetizing as they taste.. hmm
What did you do last weekend?
What quest bar recipes would you like us to try?
Have you ever tried percolated coffee?
