A few months ago we decided to take our family of 4 on an off-grid vacation to disconnect from the world and reconnect with each other. I did some research and came across an adorable little farm in Purdon TX that offered "glamping" tents that are fully furnished and all we had to bring was food and toiletries! That's my kind of camping, ahem...the kind with real beds! 


It was a wonderful experience complete with a tour of the farm and the kids got to help feed the pigs, donkey, goats, chickens and ducks and find fresh farm eggs daily and play on the rope swing and hammock and just enjoy nature. We played cards and dice games and cooked great food over the open fire. 


Que the "meat" (pun intended) of this blog. While we were there I noticed that many of the other glampers drove into town to eat instead of cooking for themselves despite the fact that their tents were also equipped with mini-fridges and a fire pit with a cooking grate. This puzzled me because half of the fun of camping, at least to me, is cooking over the fire! It doesn't get much better than fire-roasted, well pretty much anything....right? 


So then I thought well, I grew up around a campfire and making a meal plan for the week came naturally to me so why not share it so others can know exactly what they need for the week and what to cook! If you're going to glamp for the week to make things effortless, why not hit the easy button on the meal plan too? !
