Long time no post, y’all!
The last week of May, my partner Matt and I took a (much needed) vacation to beautiful Red River Gorge in KY. We loooove hiking + camping trips, but since we’re out of practice (and it was a VACATION, after all), we decided to book a cabin to serve as RnR Home Base, rather than primitive camping in a tent.
(Shoutout BTW to Red River Outdoors ; we’ve stayed there before, super affordable + lovely small A-frame cabins, very close to the hiking trails, great people. A++++ recommended!)
Since we were gonna be there for almost a week (Monday afternoon thru Saturday morning), we wanted to be 100% prepared + packed on the food front; NO extra grocery trips once we get there. And I can’t do an entire week of JUST trail mix, protein bars, raw fruit + veggies, and chips. I NEED to cook! But it’s vacation, so easy and fast recipes are best.
I spent a little time the week before vacation figuring out some recipes that would be hearty and filling, varied, but relatively cheap to make, for 5 Breakfasts + 5 Dinners for the two of us. It went so well, I wanted to share the list I made for anyone else who may find themselves in a similar position, whether you’re ‘glamping’ like us, or even just traveling for a week in a hotel with a kitchenette.
