A recipe that is super-easy for camping, is Coconut Mandarin Orange Quinoa Breakfast. At least for me, when we camp in our VW, my meal planning is very intentional, because of the space.

In this case, bring already cooked quinoa in a Ziploc bag, a can of mandarin oranges (pineapple is good, too), and we always bring nuts with us for a healthy snack.

Toss in a can of coconut milk.

Better yet, I bet coconut Greek yogurt would be a tasty touch, too!

Camping in Oregon

Friends, we’re dusting the snow off our VW Vanagon (Westfalia), dreaming about spring!

Just when we think we can take ol’ Rosemary out for a drive, it starts to snow again. But the snow is melting, and actually our son set up his “study space” inside her.

In the past, we could pop over to the Oregon coast quite quickly, but now that we are in central Oregon, we’ll have to be a bit more intentional with our planning.

We long for a warm day on the beach at Pacific City.

Our camping is much more simplified now that it’s usually just Paul and me. Years ago, we had a small trailer that we’d take the kids out in. It really does feel like this was just yesterday, when the kids were just babies (1998).

And then today. (Our family of 5 does not fit in the VW, but we’ll often take 1 kid with us, and always Haggis McStitch!)
