Outdoor Life/Picnic Food #BlogWithFriends

For this month's theme on Blog With Friends we chose "Outdoor Life" and I decided to go with camping/grilling or picnic type foods. As I thought about this I took a stroll down memory lane of days gone by when the ex and I used to take the boys camping. They loved it. I enjoyed our time away from civilization, time with friends, relaxing, nature but not sleeping on the ground. That I was not fond of, but... the things we do for our kids.

Here are a few 'old' photos from a few past trips. As you can see, it was years ago but that's okay.

Pasta Salad
8 oz Rotini garden pasta, dry, cooked per instructions, drained set aside
1/2 cup chopped broccoli
1/2 cup frozen peas
cook this in with the pasta the last 5 minutes
2.5 oz bacon pieces, cooked and chopped
1 cup grape tomatoes cut in half
8 TBSP ranch dressing
Drain and allow the pasta/veggies to cool, mix all ingredients and store in the fridge or cooler. Great as a side dish any time not just camping or picnics.
