We’re keeping it simple this week as we gear up for our Labor Day Weekend camping trip to Lake Tahoe. Sunday is one of our all-time favorite dishes that is always in rotation, no matter what time of year. So admittedly, it’s a bit of a more winter-y dish…but to be honest it has felt like winter in San Francisco the past few days! Monday we’re grilling up some salmon and summer squash to serve alongside another batch of that Brown Rice Salad with Crunchy Sprout & Seeds that we made last week. It was that good…we decided to make a second batch as soon as we ran out of it last week!  We’re depending on some leftovers we’ve had in the freezer to round out the rest of the week so we have time at night to start pulling together our camping gear and packing up.

Then we’re heading up to Lake Tahoe nice and early on Friday…if you’ve never been, put it on your bucket list!  There are very few places as spectacular and amazing as Lake Tahoe in the summer. When we go camping we do it SavoryGirl style…cooking delicious food over the campfire all weekend long. I haul up my spices, knives, cutting boards, french press and we eat well…particularly for breakfast and dinner. We take it easy for lunch and go old school with PB&J to take on our hikes and down to the beach or we’ll ride our bikes up to Tahoe City for lunch. Breakfast is eggs and bacon or pancakes on the camp stove. Of course, don’t forget the s’mores fixins! Some people think it’s crazy to cook so much while camping, but I love it because I get to cook outside and I have tons of free time so there’s nothing else pulling for my attention!

Have a fantastic Labor Day Weekend…I hope it’s full of fun, family, friends and of course fantastic food!
