I'll start off with a popcorn recipe

Ingredients
18" x 18" square of heavy foil (double if necessary)
1 tsp vegetable oil
1 tsp popcorn
Stick and String
Butter/marganie & Salt (optional)
Directions
1.Place a your foil square on a flat surface. Add vegetable oil popcorn kernals. Make a tent with corners meeting, folding the sides to seal. Be sure to leave room for the popcorn to pop!
2.Attach a long string to a stick and tie the string to the top of the foil pouch.
3.Hold the pouch over hot coals (not flames) shaking until all corn has popped. Watch that the popcorn doens't burn.
4.Open the package carefully and enjoy! You can add butter or salt, but it tastes great just as it is.
5.Prepare one package per person.

I pre-sliced some chicken breasts and froze them in zip-lock baggies in marinades (teriyaki and fajita) . They stayed frozen in the cooler until it was time to cook them. I fried them up on a big griddle I have and served the teriyaki with couscous which had finely diced carrots and broccoli in it and the chicken fajita was cooked with sliced red pepper and onion, served in wraps with sour "cream".

Both of these meals required minimum cooking so were easy on the fuel.

We recently went out and spent the day with friends of ours who are out camping at an RV park.
We brought our little camp stove with us. This is what we had for dinner:

Ham
Steamed Carrots
Salad

I have a pot with a little steamer insert. I put the ham in the bottom with about an inch or so of water and added the carrots to the top steamer basket. Boiled them for a short while until the carrots were soft. I threw a bagged salad into a bowl and dinner was served! :)

This is my favourite challenge in camping! Much more fun than trying to sleep in a leaky tent!

I'll have to try the ham and carrots!

By the way...the popcorn did not turn out well. Ii think we need more practice.

I'm involved with girl guides, and our trip last year we made baked pineapple

Cut a whole pineapple lengthwise. Open up the pineapple. Put margarine, brown sugar and cinnamon on top. Wrap tightly with tin foil and put into the fire. Once you smell the wonderful brown sugar and cinnamon smell should be ready.

Yummy!! :thumbsup

I make up pancake mixes (all the dry ingredients) in zip lock baggies and mark the recipe on the bag with a sharpie so I remember how much oil, water/soy milk etc to add. I can mix it right in the baggie for easy clean up!

I used to make cake mixes for dd's daycare in the same way!

That is such a great idea! I'll have to remember that one!

This weekend our (vegan, PN/TN-free) camping menu included:

- Tin foil fajitas (sliced onion, red peppers, with a few spices wrapped in foil and cooked over the fire then stuffed into tortillas)
- birthday cake (brought homemade carrot cake, premade, for my dad's birthday) - although we have cooked cakes over the fire or in box ovens before...
- French toast cooked in a cast iron hobo pie maker over the fire (recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance - the batter pre-mixed in a bowl for dipping)
- fresh veggie salad for lunch (with leftover french toast)
- camp chili
- tofu omlettes cooked in the hobo pie irons
- lentil soup
- burritos (leftover chili with leftover tortillas, baked in the pie irons)
Snacks: freezies (brought from home because the corner store doesn't have any PN/TN-free ones :( ), baby carrots, fruit

We ate well... maybe a little too well...

:banana Banana Boats :banana

Gently cut the banana open lengthwise with two cuts (so it opens like a pencil case) keeping the peel attached. Make horizontal cuts in the fruit and remove sections. Replace those sections with chocolate, caramels, marshmallows etc. Close the peel flap and then wrap in foil. Heat in the coals.

They will be gooey! They usually need to be scooped into a bowl.


These are an alternative to S'mores :bouncyblue

Couscous or bulgar are wheat products that are steamed. Couscous is a type of pasta where as bulgar is a cracker wheat berry.

Boil your liquid and add it to your wheat(2 parts water: 1 part grain), and let sit with a tightly fitted lid 5-30 minutes depending on the size of the grain.

You can use it in salads such as tabbouli or as a pilaf side dish.

I image you can use othe grain in a similar way.

I used this basic bannoc recipe:
Bannock
Recipe #1 Simple bannock

2 ½ cups of flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
3 tblsp lard
1 cup cold water (approx)

Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the lard and mix in thoroughly. Gradually add the water (you may not need it all) and mix until the dough is thoroughly dampened, but not sticky.
Knead the dough on a floured board for 30 seconds. Flatten the dough to 1/2" thick. Cut into 8 pieces, and fry in a lightly greased frying pan, on medium heat, for 12-15 minutes each side.
http://my.tbaytel.net/scouts/camp/bannock.html

Instead of making biscuits, used it to wrap around cored apples. Place 1 tsp margarine/butter, 1 tsp brown sugar and 1/4 tsp cinnamon sugar inside the cored apple, wrap in the bannoc dough and double wrapped it in aluminum foil.

Set them in around the coals and turn occassionally. After about 45 minutes, remove from foil and eat!
