AHHHHH surfing, camping, beach, memories of a vacations past....

Well ok only a month has past, but the cool fall air is reminding me of Tofino and a wonderful surfing vacation.   After our all day escapades on the beach and being completely exhausted, cooking seemed like such an effort but it is not!
Here are some of my favorite gourmet camping dinners, there is nothing like cooking over an open fire, it is easy and the clean up little....that is probably the real issue cleaning up after dinner being exhausted!

Rack of Lamb

 This was placed on a metal stick that was locally made for $5 (one of my favorite purchases, next to the new surfboard).  Seasoned with salt, pepper and nothing else.  Letting the hot coals do their magic and having control of the turning of the meat for perfect cooking led to a delicious, easy meal.   This was enjoyed with a salad of spinach, grated beets, goat feta, avocado and tomato.  Simple, easy, fast and made with love.

Fish Tacos 

My all time favorite meal.   I could get really obsessive over these ones as they can be done in many different ways and having them while camping is the best.   These are time consuming but worth every cut of the knife, wipe of the board and rinse of a me!

 These ones were done with fresh tuna....cause we are on the coast and lets eat, what we can, that is locally available and fresh and irresistible!  Cooked in my "baby", aka-cast iron pan, we ate some raw, some seared and with fresh salsa, guacamole and chopped cilantro and a Tofino classic chipolte mayo, (this is everywhere and on everything).

The sun is shining and I will talk to you soon!

Have a magically delicious day!


  1. Hey Nicole, what are the crepe type thingy's on the white plates in the main picture up there??

  2. They are thinly sliced eggplant stuffed with a wild bc mushroom and fresh herb compote. A smoked cream corn sauce and was finished (but not shown cause the guy who took the pictures never took one of a finished plate.....)with a balsamic reduction, and on a bed of baby spinach.
    It was an appy!
