Fast, efficient, tasty at the campground

Quick and simple meals are very popular regardless of the season and place of preparation - whether in your own kitchen or on vacation at the campground. Meals prepared in a dozen or so minutes are eaten more willingly, the more tired us a day full of sightseeing and kilometers traveled or walked.

Coming up with "fast" dishes (not necessarily "fast food") seems very easy. Just reheated meals from a jar - stews, baked beans, aleo, al dente pasta quickly covered with some sauce. For this heaps of Chinese soups, jellies and puddings, and the menu is ready. However, when we are facing a 2-week or longer trip, such a kitchen can, literally and figuratively, overeat. So what can you come up with to make it tasty, fast and interesting?

Watched on forums

You can get to know a whole lot of culinary inspirations on various forums and websites devoted to tourism. Some are less, some are more healthy, some are painfully caloric, but can't you go crazy once a year? The calories gained can be burned quickly - after all, we are on vacation. Looking through the websites, you can easily see that the campsites, apart from goulash and risotto, are ruled by pasta dishes . This pasta can be prepared with absolutely anything, from a la bolognese sauce, through a vegetable mishmash, and ending with experiments with sauce prepared from melted cheese, azure cheese or feta. You can add tomatoes to such a dish, fry the pasta with egg or bacon, season it to taste with eg Provencal herbs… There are plenty of options.

Meat lovers will probably not give up on it in favor of cheese or vegetables, not to mention light meals made of salads (will there be a woman who has not heard the indignant at least once: "What am I a rabbit ?!"). Well-fried and well-seasoned, in combination with filling pasta, it will allow you to forget about freshly obtained - like the spoils of war - prints. It can be ground or cut into pieces, it can be crunchy or infused with sauce or wine (gourmet version), but it will give you strength even after the busiest day.

Pasta reigns supreme, but sometimes it can be dethroned and turned into rice or couscous . The aforementioned porridge itself can act as a wholesome meal - just pour hot water over it. This is a good idea for a really hungry person who doesn't want to wait for a meal a second longer than necessary.

Thrown on the grate

Dishes associated with camping are not only those prepared on a gas or electric stove. It is also delicious, aromatic grilled dishes . In addition to classic sausages sprinkled with herbs and other spices, stuffed vegetables and fresh fish can land on the grill. Wrapped in foil, lightly salted and seasoned, or sprinkled with a bit of butter ... lick your fingers!

And any more unusual ideas ? On the web you can find a recipe for noodles from Chinese soups fried with vegetables and chicken, as well as a potato, sausage (or bacon) and onion casserole prepared in a samovar, seasoned with paprika and nutmeg. Caloric, but delicious. There is no shortage of inspiration for campers, so you can learn something new from them every time. And who knows, maybe the dish you have watched will come to our kitchen for good?

Visiting the south of Sicily
Sicily, known as the Island of the Sun, is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Its south-west part is only 100 km from the coast of Africa. The landscape is more hilly and mountainous with steep shores. What to see in this part of Sicily? What dishes characteristic of this largest region of Italy are worth trying? We invite you to read!. Let's start with Ragusa, which is one of the main cities of the southern part of Sicily. The main attractions of visiting Ragusa should be the valuable baroque monuments of sacred art - the Cathedral of San Giovanni, the Duomo si dan Giorgio and the Church of San Giuseppe. Apart from them, take a stroll through the historic city center, full of narrow streets that are climatically inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Interestingly, the city was almost completely destroyed during an earthquake in the 17th century, and after rebuilding it was divided into two parts - Ragusa Superiore and Ragusa Ibla - the latter is particularly interesting due to the romantic atmosphere among quiet alleys with a Baroque history in the background. Another point of family holidays in Sicily - one of the most important cities of the ancient world. It is worth seeing the cathedral, behind the facade of which is the temple of Athena from the 5th century BC. Then you can check out the city of olives and almonds, or Noto. From the monuments you will see the cathedral with two twin towers and the Church of Santa Chiara. In turn, 50 km from Marsala you will find excavations in Selinunte - to this day most of them are hidden in the ground. The last, but equally important, stop should be Agrigento with its famous Valley of the Temples. There is also a large port nearby, from which the ships on the Pelagie Island - Lampedusa and Linosa depart.
