Summer camp probably isn't the place you think to go for a 4-star meal, but I'm proud to tell you that Camp Shetek has a reputation for amazing, amazing food. My mother-in-law is the head chef and she could orchestrate delicious meals and beautiful plates with her eyes closed. We're famous for our homemade breads, chicken alfredo lasagna, fried ice cream, and legendary Camp Granola.

I thought I'd try to tell you what all we've been eating this summer, we pretty much at the same meals on a rotation each week. But of course, we never got tired of them :) It's hard to get tired of food that someone else is making for you! So, here are some meal ideas from the Camp Shetek kitchen.


BREAKFAST:
Pancakes
Egg Bake and Coffee Cake
Cornbread and bacon OR French Toast
Sausage biscuits
Breakfast Burritos
Cinnamon Rolls!

DINNER (LUNCH):
Spaghetti and garlic bread
Chicken Alfredo Lasagna
Roast Beef Dinner
Turkey Dinner
Baked Enchiladas
Homemade Pizza
Shepherd's Pie

SUPPER:
Chicken Strips
Tacos
Barbecues
Chicken Bacon Ranch Wraps
Sub Sandwiches
Hot Dogs and baked beans

For sides we ate a lot of fresh fruit and salads, homemade bread, veggies... and some dessert. :)


DESSERTS:
Brownies
Mini Cheesecakes
Cookies: chocolate chip, snicker doodle, craisin crunch, outrageous chocolate chip
Better Than Ever Cake
Crackle Bars
Pumpkin Bars with cream cheese frosting
Monster Bars

So, we've been food spoiled lately and I've pretty much just eaten whatever this whole summer, especially during my first trimester. I'm sad that it's over (it was such a gift!), but also excited to get back into my own kitchen and eat the way we're used to :)

One of my favorite things to do is think about camp food when I'm deciding what to add to a menu or bring to a potluck. YUM. I miss Monday Pizzas!

Wow, can I get one of everything on that menu?! That first trimester is a doozy and if you can even eat, all the better!
I would love to know what kind of toddler snacks you do. We have our rotation but sometimes it gets a little old: carrot and cucumber sticks, olives, homemade pickles, soaked granola, sprouted muffins, apple slices, raisins.
Ideas?

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
