Countdown to Nationals
The Nationals are twice a year, every May & October. Our trip has been getting shorter over the years…we used to go down to Virginia 4 days in advance, to take in the sites, visit Civil War battlefields, go spelunking, etc. This National we’re probably only going to make it in on Friday evening. Which makes my life a lot easier in prep.
In addition to getting all the shooting & camping gear ready the week before, I have to make sure we have plenty of my versions of MREs. Because I can only eat so many hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hot dogs & sliders in a day. Breakfast is easy…granola bars, ready to drink shakes or cold cereal. Dinner is another story.
This week I will be making chicken cutlets and sausage & peppers. They are great because I can make individual portions in my foodsaver and freeze them. Then all I have to do is boil a pot of water, drop a few bags in and dinner is served. No mess, no clean up. Which is beyond awesome because the last thing I look forward to doing after a long day of shooting is cooking and cleaning.
