    Exclamation ISO menu ideas for camping trip

    I'm going camping in 3 weeks with my inlaws and the kiddos. We are going to combine meals so I need some menu ideas. Campfire recipes are not necessary, I have a range and stove in my camper as does MIL. I just need make and take ideas that will feed 4 adults and 3 kids. I plan on taking lasagna, but need some side dish and main dish ideas that I can either make ahead of time, or assemble easily at the camper. Thanks! I can't wait to hear your yummy ideas!

    On Friday night we always do steak with a side of fried potatoes and onions. Since we always make more than we need we wrap the remaining leftover in foil. In the morning hubby adds 1/2 ;b link sausage to the leftovers, cooks till almost done then adds 6 eggs and grated cheedar cheese. Its VERY easy and delicious.

    We always packed sausage with peppers and onions-can be put on sandwiches etc. Can cook ahead and reheat, either in oven, crock or stovetop. Traditional pasta salads travel well, as does pasta with broccoli. Have a good trip!

    If you need a quick clean up meal, cook a dinner in aluminum foil in the oven-no dishes or pots to clean up. One of our favorites is a hamburger patty, one onion slice, cubed potatoes, carrots and celery. It's like a version of pot roast done in foil.

    Chicken cooked in Italian dressing and Italian bread crumbs is good too. Lots of receipes can be done this way. You might check to see if Reynolds Aluminum has a website with receipes.
    Have fun camping!

    Default Good for the kids to do

    This is a good one for kids to do.... Do either a "Stone soup" or Hobo Stew..... Just buy canned or frozen ingredients, or have them pre-cooked or blanched. have your meat (chicken, beef, ect) already cooked and cut up. Heat up some water or broth in a dutch oven or crock pot. Have each child add an ingredient. You could also buy the book or check it out at the library. As each ingredient is read from the book, have the children take turns putting it in the pot. My kids have done this and remember years later. Kids will usually eat ANYTHING they themselves have cooked. (No matter how aweful )
    ALSO....
    take some refridgerator rolls, find a stick, wittle the end a bit (just take off the bark or use those long fire forks) roll the bisquit in your hands to make a snake, twist it around the stick or fork. Hold it in the heat ABOVE THE FIRE not in the fire, when it is roasted eat with dinner or roll in cinnamon sugar or dip into jelly or pancake syrup. "Stone soup" (B)"stone soup"(B)

    I always (well usually) cook up a bunch of potatoes in the microwave to take camping. They slice up real easy for fried potatoes. Potatoes and or onions cook up real nice on the fire. (After the fire goes down, lay them in the coals) Pasta and potato salad keeps real nice in the camper fridge. You should get one of those turkey friers! They use a lot of oil, but the turkey/chicken is EXCELLENT! I saw a recipe somewhere about cooking ground pork sausage, mixing it with cream cheese and wrapping in crescent roll like pigs in a blanket. That sounded good!

    I'm going to pass on that idea. I prefer a nice thermos, not plastic to eat hot foods out of.

    Hmmm. Kind of goes against the getting rid of all plastic! But I guess the concept is pretty cool. Thanks, Sara!
