The quest for camp pizza

We have a 4th of July tradition, Dutch Oven Pizza. It began in the summer of 2015 when we could not afford to turn the key in our vehicle knowing that we could not afford to refill the tank. Determined to not feel depressed or to go on government assistance, we had an awesome year. Summer was the best. That was when we began The great Dutch Oven Pizza Cook Off. That was when I first discovered overnight Pizza Dough. It occurred to us that this would be perfect for camp pizza. Not that there is anything wrong with Trader Joe’s pizza dough. It is inexpensive and quite good. But a family of pizza makers ought to be able to make their own pizza dough.

I’ve lost the recipe we originally used (the guy is famous for having Labradors, I think he lives in Connecticut and has built an outdoor pizza oven from stacked bricks and cement stones) Here is a recipe that comes close…. more to follow.

A Kelly Kettle

I was not supposed to be home when it came…. but I was.

We have not been camping for quite a while. Our income has not allowed it for a stretch of time. We still have to be careful, but it looks like we may be able to take a couple of trips if we can do it for the price of gas in the Big Green Bud. Now if I can just keep myself from buying too many new toys. Because I’m thinking we need this stove and pot (or at least the pot) Giggling is the sound of the day

3march-2-2017-kelly-kettle-1 Happy Birthday to me! I kept saying how much I liked Kelly Kettle, but did not think there was one in my future. They are not inexpensive. But there it was! Now there I am practicing on my back porch, giving it a go, bringing water to a boil, dumping it down the sink to get any factory finish out of it before we take it for a drive in the mountains. I am a happy girl!

By the way, the zebra pot has nothing to do with Kelly Kettle… it is just the next toy I want to get out into the wild with… Happy trails!
