the ultimate Thanksgiving leftovers grilled cheese sandwich

camping food: cumin and curry popcorn

Whenever Patrick and I roll into a campsite, I secretly hope that little camp elves have prepared a glass of wine with cheese and crackers for me, and a cold beer with chips and salsa for Patrick. I have yet to find said elves, so for now I guess I will manage with the food […]
