Roughing It

Originally posted 6/24/09


As in a tent. You know trees, campfires, nature...

Jason and I loved to go camping b.k. (before kids). He's very "outdoorsy" -- loves to fish, bike, hike, and grill. I tend to prefer a nice comfy (climate controlled!) hotel room...even still, I must admit that it was alot of fun to pack up the car and live in the wild every now and then.

Our favorite camping spot was Chincoteague Island. My family used to vacation there in the summers. We'd rent a cottage or an RV and spend the week at the beach. When I was all grown up, I introduced Jason to the island and it became "our spot". Pony Penning was something we always enjoyed...aside from the mosquitos (if you've ever been to Chincoteague, you know all about those little buggers!!!), we have many happy camping memories.

But that was all BEFORE small children...before diabetes...before celiac... This weekend we're getting back to basics -- and bringing our girls with us :)

** Extra Novolog - check.
** Lantus (just in case) - check.
** Extra pump supplies - check.
** Syringes (just in case) - check.
** Plenty 'o juice - check.
** Food Scale - check.
** Make a loaf of bread for Sugar's sandwiches -- that will get done tomorrow.
** Stuff for s'mores - ..........

Looks like we need some gluten free graham crackers!


A few weeks ago, my mom sent me an order of Jules' new Graham cracker mix and I've been waiting for an opportunity to put it to good use. What better reason than campfire s'mores???



(Yes, they're all still in their jammies. Why bother getting dressed to make a mess?)

I decided to use cookie cutters instead of trying to get them all the same size/shape with a knife. Besides cookie cutters are more fun :) We sprinkled some cinnamon and sugar on top before baking. The girls looked through all the cookie cutters and decided that butterflies and fish would be most appropriate for camping.

I couldn't agree more!

THE VERDICT: YUMMY!!!! DELICIOUS!!!! 
Find me a stick, I need to roast a marshmallow :)
