Menu Plan Monday

This week's two-week menu plan is a bit different from normal, due to the fact that DH and I will be taking a trip next weekend. Our plan is to backpack in Great Smoky Mountains National Park for 4 days and 3 nights, meaning menu planning this week was a bit more challenging. For all of you interested on what meals you can make in the backcountry, I have provided our dinners for the trip as well. We'll be hiking an average of 10 miles a day, so loading up on calories is essential!

Stay tuned for more recipes this week on request from a friend!
