One of our favorite traditions in the early fall is to have a big family camp out.  I love camp food!  Especially bacon.  (That’s a camp food, right?)

As usual, I meal plan 2 weeks at a time.  I also try to keep it simple and double up on our favorite foods. We have a freezer full of a half of a hog and a quarter of a beef, which is just wonderful.

Here’s our 2 week meal plan for October.

  • sandwiches (PB&J, lunchmeat, nutella and graham crackers)
