Tube Steak! A Photo Essay

Anne, Ivy, and I just returned from a trip to the Catskills: Weenie Weekend!
When I was growing up, we'd spend Memorial Day weekend camping with my dad's family. I always enjoyed the self-sufficiency of carrying everything in and out on your back or in your car. As novices, we ladies did our best to keep it simple.

Day One:
hummus and pita, carrots, strawberries, grapes, gorp, chips and salsa, hot dogs, smores, lime sugar cookies. Oh...and booze.

Ganache left over from peanut butter-oatmeal sandwich cookies. So decadent and delicious!

Day Two:
same, with addition of bananas. Not even worth documenting

Day Three:
We avoided weenies for breakfast in favor of hot food, seats, and electric lights at Johnny G's diner. Diners are best ever: I was clearly the most excited about this.


  1. I'd like to know the grand total of weenies we consumed in three days. I'm sure it's not record-breaking, but I believe it was my personal best. Any stats?

  2. I think we each only ate 3. Paltry total, if you ask me. On the other hand, that's 3 more than I've eaten in the prior 15 years. Yay!

  3. we each ate 4! one on sunday night, two monday afternoon, and one monday night. it was a weenie weekend indeed. thanks for the fun (and burps), ladies!
