Oops I posted this 2 days late. We already ate a couple of these meals! Yummm. We have parties on Saturday so will eat out. Happy December!
Last weekend Tony and I took a spur of the moment overnight camping trip. We figured why not!? First Landing State Park down in Virginia Beach was recommended to us as a great place to camp so we tried it out. Luckily we got a day of camp site reservation, and luckily we had all the camping equipment up in the attic just waiting to be used.
The place was gorgeous! The beach was large and pretty. The campgrounds were cute and had awesome trees; they were clean and had nice bathroom/shower houses nearby. I’d give it an A+ and recommend it to locals (or those looking for a nice simple vacation spot!).
While only there for one night we cooked dinner at the campsite. I’ve have plenty of backpacking and camping experience but Tony knew exactly what to do here for what I call ‘car camping’. See our car parked in the background? Easy peasy.
We brought our own wood and set up a fire once it started to become close to dusk. We didn’t have to worry about it being cold since it was 70 degrees that November day! We picked up 2 chicken breasts just before pulling into the park and brought everything else we’d need.

We cut up the chicken and put it in the IKEA pot with some butter and its’ lid. Also the potatoes with some spices went in the frying pan over a roaring fire. #thisiscamping
After x amount of time (hey this IS camping) you’re food will be done! Ha, I have no clue since the temperature is all over the place but be sure to stir every once and a while. Hopefully you can eat with some daylight still – or bring candles!
