We camped in our 5th wheel travel trailer for 10 days this month here in Western Washington. We’ve known about this camping trip for almost a year and I’ll be the first to admit that I wasn’t prepared. I didn’t make my normal list of things to pack. And I ended up forgetting a lot of things — most importantly rain coats and rain boots. The clouds, thunder, lightening and rain was a HUGE surprise and we weren’t prepared. Thankfully, we’re camping in our 5th wheel not a tent.
Our family loves getting outside, especially during the summer months. Camping, biking, hiking, swimming, kayaking, and stand up paddle boarding are a few of our favorite things to do. There is so much beauty here in the great Pacific Northwest.
I did meal plan for our dinners. I brought food from home, shopped for the extra stuff, and kept breakfast and lunch simple: cereal and peanut butter and jam sandwiches respectively. So guess what happened? My kids made a lot of great friends. Those friends came over and visited and played very frequently. Which is nice — I mean I’ll tell you the truth, I’d rather relax and visit with adults than entertain the kids. I like when friends come over. So I decided to show my appreciation to the Littles and feed them.
Enter my fabulous camping idea: the Peanut Butter and Jam Sandwich Bar.
I don’t know if I made it up. Sometimes as a blogger, I refuse to Google my ideas – because truly there’s nothing new under the sun.
For the PB&J Sandwich Bar I needed:
- Peanut Butter
- Soft White Bread (cause we’re camping and I need to spoil the kids sometimes)
- Mini Marshmallows (when I was a kid adding these to my PB&J was my favorite sandwich)
- Mini Chocolate Chips (white and milk chocolate of course)
- Sweetened Coconut Flakes

Do you think my impromptu sandwich bar was a hit?
Of course it was. For the kids who didn’t like jam (strange, I know) they had plenty of options for other ingredients. Thankfully, no one had a peanut allergy.
What’s a go-to camping food for your family?
