    I spent a little time in the Middle East last summer and saw the way they did grilled veggies and was lucky enough to eat in Jordan. It was during Ramadan, so meat wasn’t served. I did have some amazing veggies and they also had another meal that came from Afghanistan originally with some added protein. I researched it and found a few variations. This is my camp version of it as I ate hearty and set off for my old camp to see the amount of damage from the recent weather over the past year. I decided to refurbish it and get it ready for use again. I was out one of the days with a buddy who was full of new gear to test and photograph for magazine articles.
    The camp was a wreck, almost total loss. Weather and jute twine just don’t mix. Everything that had jute twine initially was done for. Chairs, table, fire reflectors, utensils…all came undone. I used a few ways to fix them and then lashed with plastic strapping. Mostly, I wanted to clear out under the bed from rotten wood, nests, critters, restore the ridgepole and stands, dry out crap wood, and have a good burn to clear out debris and get rid of crap wood. Weather has been warming up to the high 40s/low 50s and sunny, so drying out wood and poplar bark has been possible…but…

    Olive oil, add cubed potatoes, diced onions after a few minutes. Add cut up tomatoes after stirring the taters and onions for about 5-7 minutes…stir. Add raw eggs, cover and let eggs cook.

    Old camp…needed a snack after much work. I carried some heavy tools and needed to go light so I brought one of the lightest knives I own. Mora #1

    Hiking back in, Jonathan had lots of stuff to shoot and try out

    The next day started with a proper log-cabin fire…big one to die down to coals for cooking.

    I stood on the shore of Al Aqabah, Jordon and looked at Israel, Egypt and Saudi Arabia all at once. Food, as well as tools, and many other things are often shared, traded and influenced by the surrounding countries.
