Me and the kids went camping for one night at Wind Wolves Preserve south of Bakersfield. We met up with Kent's family and his brother-in-law and spent the night and then went on a nice long 5-6 mile hike. The temperature was perfect and we had a great time.
Of course, one of the challenges was figuring out what to eat that would work for camping. We only brought a very small cook stove, bowls and spoons. So here is what my food choices ended up being and it worked out great!
-Rice (steamed ahead of time), black beans and corn mixed with a Southwest Salsa (warmed up on the stove).
-Whole wheat curly pasta with an oil free Italian dressing and pepper (served cold)
-Whole wheat Pita bread
-Oatmeal raisin cookies for dessert
-Quick oatmeal with raisins, cinnamon and sugar
We didn't really have a formal lunch but rather trail snacks.
-Two different kinds of Red Mill granola
-Whole wheat pita bread
-Lots of water
We came home Saturday afternoon. Here are some more pictures of the trip.
