Mountain Fuel

This weekend, we aren’t heading up to the mountains until tomorrow, Saturday, so it leaves a whole night to meal prep. Our Silverthorne Condo is a gem and while the dated bathrooms and carpet EVERYWHERE doesn’t bother me in the slightest, the kitchen leaves little to be desired. Not ideal to cook in.

And it’s certainly not in the same ball park as our kitchen. (The picture above shows our tiny ski condo kitchen compared to ours, below.)

So, while Mike works late on this Friday night, I will meal prep some mountain fuel to bring up for our weekend of adventure! When planning what food to make, I consider two things. One, what will  be easy to re-heat in our kitchen (with 10 of our friends, plus their guests, it can be a tight squeeze). Two, it needs to be delicious, nutrient packed, and filling. We burn a lot of calories on those slopes!
