camping treats

I mentioned in my last post that we are going camping for one night this weekend. I am making my food list which includes the norm...s'mores:) YUMMY!! Well, I was thinking that we need some other camping goodies also. We can't just live on s'mores all week can we?

So, tell me!! What are your favorite camping meals, snacks, etc?

10 people showing me love:

Just read a post a couple of weeks ago on LJC about what she cooked while camping. They had a neat looking pig in a blanket thing ... a hotdog wrapped with biscuit dough I think. That looked pretty good. We like to take hamburgers or steaks for the first night and have fish after that. Oatmeal is always good .. hot chocolate too. ;) PBJ?

We are going the whole weekend...I need to get off my computer and plan some meals.

I usually do a meat and veggie packet. Wrap chicken some kinda sauce and seasoning in a few layers of foil and put in the hot coal to cook, always so yummy!

Do a google search for camping food or camping meals, there are some good ones!

We do a big pot of chili too, I cook the meat before we go, a bit easier.

Have fun...we are hoping for good weather so we can drop the new jet ski in an see if it works! (Can't test drive jet skis!)

Well, hotdogs of course. ;) Hobo meals over the fire are super yummy too! (they're basically cut up potatos, carrots, onions sausage with some butter/salt/pepper...and then you wrap it in tin foil and cook it over the fire!) Banana boats are good too...same idea - cut a banana in half (but not ALL the way through) and put peanutbutter, choc. chips, marshmallows, etc. in the middle...then wrap it in tin foil and put it over the fire for a bit. :) They are super yummy, even though I know that 'warm bananas' don't sound the greatest! haha. :) Good luck with food ideas!

Call me boring, but I love hotdogs when camping. Actually, I love hotdogs anytime, but they're especially good when you're camping. Also, you can put a big rock in the fire, wrap potatoes in foil, and cook baked potatoes. My dad and brother recently cooked steaks this way (minus the foil) on a camping trip,and they said it was really really good.

Good luck with the Camping.....I do not have any food advice as I have never camped in a tent. We always had campers with fridges and stoves and had regular meals. Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, Sloppy Joes, and usually where we camped there were great Seafood Places that we would get seafood.

Yummo - camping food. My stepdad puts a nail in the potatoes, so it heats up from the inside, wraps them in foil and cooks on the fire.

Andrea's banana's sound divine.

Don't forget beans and brown sugar...yummy!

fire pit chicken... chicken tossed in your fave seasonings wrapped in layers of foil, then tossed under the coals/wood bits/char stuff to cook it... easy and good!

When I was in girl scouts years and years ago I learned a really yummy camping treat if your family likes bananas! You take a banana and cut the peel open lengthwise and cut down into the banana like halfway. Sprinkle in some brown sugar and butter (or cinnamon, anything like that is yummy!) and then wrap in foil and place face up in the hot coals of the fire. It doesn't take very long to cook. To me it didn't sound very good but it tastes great! :)

We also make chicken packets when we go camping...you put in chicken breast, whatever veggies you want, any kind of seasonings you want and then wrap in foil and cook over the fire until the chicken is done. We usually do baked potatoes too!
