Camp Food

 For our last camping trip of the season, we took our camp trailer out to Walton Lake in the Ochocos. We met some good friends of ours out there, and had adjoining campsites. We met Jerry and Mary when we were all young newlyweds in the '70's, and have been camping with them ever since. We both are grandparents now, and probably will be 'great' grands in this next decade.
Jerry has recently taken up an interest in camp cooking, over the grill and with a Dutch Oven. On Saturday, we modified our menu to include items that we could fix over the campfire grill. For breakfast Jerry flipped 'Corn Meal Griddle Cakes' over the fire, and also cooked up some sausage in a second fry pan. Good camping food!

Doesn't this photo make you want to taste some? For lunch Jerry and Mary fixed a stew, and cooked it over the campfire, and we had some garlic bread in foil warmed up as well. It was delicious, and didn't take as long to cook as I would have thought.
For dinner, we grilled brats and steak over the fire, and warmed up some beans. A very successful day of camp cooking for sure! We are planning more of this next year as it was fun to experiment, and really fun to eat.

Really, everything tastes better when cooked over an open fire :)
