I've never seen cheese curds before!!! What are they? What's the texture?

Thanks for sharing your meal plans for camping! It certainly helps seeing how others are managing traveling and camping. Makes it easier for all of us 🙂
On a related note, have you seen the summer camp programs for Celiac kids? My kids just came back from spending a week at one and LOVE it! There are 5 throughout the US. My kids went to Camp Celiac / Camp Arroyo in California. I'm so glad they got to experience a summer camp like "normal" kids do and they said the food was awesome!

I love the way you stored the beef stew Jeanine! That's such a great idea. Sounds like you had great camping food, even if it was at home, LOL. Sorry the new campground was so rotten!

@Maria @ Beautiful Busy Bee, Maria, cheese curds are really yummy! We have a company about 20 minutes from here that makes cheese, and the cheese curds (that we call 'squeaky cheese') is one of our favorites from them. They are sort of like really fresh cheese that isn't pressed together. And they squeak in between your teeth when you eat them. The local company actually calls theirs "Squeakers". 🙂

@Jennifer, Jennifer, I haven't kept up with the summer camp programs, but I've heard of them. I think that is so awesome!! Last year my daughter went to camp for the first time, and I thought…if she were celiac, how on earth would she cope here? So glad that camps are catering to the kids, so they don't have to miss out over a dietary restriction.

@Cindy, Thanks,Cindy! We actually enjoyed "camping" at home quite a bit this year. 🙂

Hi Jeanie, camping Celiac’s here! I must be missing something and I hope you can help. We have been GF for about a year and a half now and I have yet to be able to serve cold pasta salad. We use mostly Tinky and in the fridge it basically hardens back up. I have read on the internet on various places that GF pasta is actually mushy in the fridge but that is a complete mystery to me. Can you enlighten me and tell me what I’m doing wrong?

I know all too well what you’re talking about. I had the same problem for the first few years of eating gluten-free too. Then, I switched pastas. Now, instead of brown rice pasta, I use a corn pasta, and don’t cook it until al dente, cook it until it is done (not mushy, but done). Rise it with cold water, and you should be good to go! With corn pasta, if it is still slightly undercooked, it will go back to hard, just like the rice pasta. Hope that helps you out a bit. 🙂
