The unforgettable.

Out of anything in the world who would think that the nasty Christmas recipe of Brussels sprouts would be a fantastic meal, only if cooked by Robert.
It was delicious… I cannot stop thinking about it and in fact Robert made this dish twice for us. Really simple!!!
I thought to share this recipe with you because it has changed my life!!!

Ingredients:
Brussels sprouts
Garlic
Olive oil
Teriyaki sauce or Worcestershire sauce

Preparation:
1) Fry some garlic in oil and when it is brown add some Teriyaki sauce or Worcestershire sauce.
2) Cover the Brussels sprouts with this mix and bake for about 15 minutes at about 350 oF, then turn the Brussels sprouts around and leave them in the oven for another 15 minutes.
3) Once crispy take out of the oven and enjoy!!!

Ingredients:
Crackers (baked are very nice)
Peanut butter
Jam
Banana
Coffee

Preparation:
1) Add some peanut butter and jam to the crackers.
2) Eat this while having a banana blast.
3) Accompany with some coffee.

Scary night.

It was scary to have her going around our tent with a big flashlight but it was a pleasure to meet Gertrude, a Canadian lady who has lived in California USA for a long time and at 77 years old travels everywhere with Rascal her lovely dog in a camper. I totally appreciated the lesson, it does not matter the age to do the things we suppose to do. She introduced me to a great meal that I will cook from now on.

Ingredients:
Spaghetti squash
Pasta
Tomatoe sauce
Olive oil
Onion
Jalapeno
Cheese
Seasoning salt
Salt
Pepper

Preparation:
1) Boil the spaghetti squash.
2) Boil a little bit of pasta to add some weight to the meal.
3) Cook a piece of onion with jalapeno in a little bit of olive oil.
4) Once everything has been cooked mix it all together and add the tomatoe sauce. You may want to add some spices like seasoning salt or simply salt and pepper.
5) Serve with cheese on top.

Note: For those who never have used spaghetti squash, once it has been boiled you need to scoop the noodles out. It is better when baked but camping does not allow for that unless someone assists you with this part of the operation.
