It was one thing to, along the way, bump into old friends or make new friends to help us navigate this lifestyle, problem solve our disasters, or brainstorm great places to add to our journey. It’s been quite a new thing to navigate some of this with family who have been as my mom would say “a soft place to land.” We’ve been whisked away to an enchanting campground, had camp prepared for us by a Boy Scout Extraordinaire, cooked for by gourmet camping chefs, had childcare support from loving cousins, and offered the chance to float/paddle around one of the most serene, secluded lakes. I’m pretty sure the 7 shooting stars and the osprey chasing the bald eagle were orchestrated as well. Thank you, Bull Trout Lake. More so, thank you, Hunts.
Amongst other things such as how to graciously and endlessly pour into and be generous to others, I’m also taking with me a few great recipes for the road. One of which is Lisa’s own alfredo.
Lisa’s Camping Alfredo (and non-camping for that matter):
- Grill the chicken (or if grilled in advance, rewarm in tin foil)
- Steam broccoli in tin foil over fire
- Cook pasta over camping stove (or if cooked in advance, rewarm)
- In a saucepan, melt 1 stick of butter. Add 1 cup of Parmesan and stir until melted. Add 1 cup of heavy cream (a little at a time) until mixed in and slightly thickened.
- Let participants (especially those picky young ones) decided how to combine and in what order.
