The Dinner Project: Week 16

May 7, 2011

Last week, after three days of rain and thunderstorms, Drew and I skipped town and went camping for the night at Foster Falls. If I haven’t said it before, I’ll say it now, Tennessee is so very very beautiful. And everything always tastes better when cooked over a fire. Especially steak.

Foster Falls

We walked over this bridge to get to the falls

The bridge went over this river

Looking down

Looking up

We came back from our hike and drank a beer

Then Drew carved up some sticks for us to cook steak

These sticks, to be precise

And I set up the tent



Guacamole for the fajitas

Camping spices: oil, salt & pepper

Our dinner cooking over the was so delicious

Steak cooked on a stick over the fire, zucchini wrapped in tin foil & cooked over the fire & fresh guacamole all wrapped up in a flour tortilla; ears of corn wrapped in tin foil & cooked over the fire; dark chocolate with hazelnuts for dessert (Delicious! Everything tastes better cooked over a fire)
