It's Canada Day today.  Happy Canada Day! 

Many people have extended the weekend or have started their summer vacation, it's pretty deserted around here! They're out enjoying their cabins and campgrounds - we seem to stay home on long weekends and go camping during the week when it's a little quieter, so we're at home enjoying the heat! 

This fabulous day calls for a great campfire dish.

I'm originally from a largely First Nations community and growing up, one of the staples was Bannock, a basic bread that is perfect for camping. It can be fried in fat/oil, baked in the oven, or cooked over fire.

Bannock fried in oil


2 cups Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 Tbsp Sugar
1/4 cup Powdered Milk
*Add 1 cup Water when making

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a plastic resealable bag and you've got a great bread option when camping. All you have to do is add the water, mix well and fry in a couple Tbsp of oil or fat or roast on a stick over an open flame. Top with Jam, peanut butter, cheese, butter, honey, or your favourite bread topping for a delicious easy camping bread . 

One of our favourite was to eat Bannock is to make Bannock Dogs - Bannock wrapped around a wiener and roasted on a stick over the campfire. We dip it in mustard or ketchup for a tasty campfire treat.
