Tasty Vittles

The summer is going by fast. For our last little vacation we are going camping.
One of the highlights of camping is cooking. Everyone prepares and enjoys the meal together.

When I was a kid my family went camping all the time. My Dad always made the meals. He had a stove and we would eat very good food. It was more along the lines of the kind of food you would make at home. Elaborate in preparing and delicious to eat.

Bid D and I decided that for are family we are going to cook camping food. Since we don’t have a stove, and we have kids who are not satisfied unless they are cooking along with us we are going to use a more traditional method to cook our food. We will only be using the campfire.

I do intend to get a cast iron skillet and the kids do have a mess kit that comes with little pans, this is what we will use. I think the kids will enjoy this type of cooking. I will have my fingers crossed in hopes we do ok and that we will have something to eat on this trip. If all else fails we will always have roasted hot dogs to fall back on.

Looking for camp recipes I came across some that sound yummy. Here are a few that I like.

Egg in an Orange Peel
I like this one because the kids have to eat the orange to make the bowl.

Biscuits on a Stick

Boatin’ Hillbilly Trash Breakfast

Breakfast Hash

Bacon and Eggs in a Paper Bag

Campfire Pizza

Pig on a Stick

Hobo Dinner

Baby Red Potatoes

Easy Taco Salad

Foil Bag Surprise

Dogs in Sleeping Bags

Campfire Corn on the Cob

Banana Boats

Baked Apples

These are a few of the recipes I found that I think will be fun to make and good to eat. If you have any basic camping recipes feel free to share them with me.

Have fun camping! I don't have any good recipes but the ones you have posted sure sound good. I can't believe how fast the summer is going by. My boys start school in only 2 and 1/2 weeks.
