2 cans Pillsbury biscuits
1/2 gallon to 1 gallon cooking oil
1 cup sugar
1/8 cup cinnamon
1 cup powdered sugar
You will want to find the biscuits that are NOT flaky. I haven't actually tried the flaky, but I've been told they don't hold up as well. These are the butter biscuits. Let me just say right here that there is absolutely nothing healthy about these, and we only felt ok about eating them after 6 mile rambling hike the day before. Oh, ok, confession: I'd feel ok about eating them after no hike at all.
Have your cinnamon sugar spread out on a plate so that you can immediately roll the hot donuts in the sugar. It will stick better that way.
scotch eggs, which are also really easy camp food, too. Happy camping! The Fall is the best time to get lost in the woods, as long as there are donuts back at the campsite.

The sleeping in tents went well, and the littles really like the novelty of sleeping outside. There were a few wake-ups from Rowan, but it really wasn't too bad. We stayed at St. Francois state park (in Missouri), and it really was a beautiful park. We decided that a long hike was in order to fully enjoy its beauty. And that is when the camping trip hit a snag.

These nymphs cavorting below really sparked an interesting topic of conversation with Fletcher after Brian told him that I used to be a nymph that he had "caught." Oy. Lots of questions about me living in the forest and dancing naked ensued. Thanks for that, Brian.
