    Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

    2 lb Boneless chicken parts (may use bone in parts)
    2 T Honey
    2 T Dijon mustard
    2 T Melted margarine
    1 t Basil Leaves
    1/2 t Garlic Powder

    Preheat grill for direct-heat cooking. Place chicken on grill rack. Combine remaining ingredients. During last 3-4 minutes per side of grilling time, brush chicken with sauce.
    The first thing to consider is to bring food that you, and especially the kids, like to eat. In fact, I ask the kids what they want to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner and usually get a lot of “sugary” suggestions that I can build something wholesome out of, and everyone is happy.

    For breakfast prepare what you would normally prepare like cereal and then add eggs or pancakes to it. You can purchase small, single-serving cereal boxes that you can cut a “T” shape into and pour the milk right into the box
    tongs to pull it out of the coals and to peel back the foil.

    Take a strip of tin foil about 12” long, cut a whole banana lengthways, then stuff it with chocolate, or caramel or Rolos (chocolate/caramel chucks). Squeeze the banana back together and wrap it tightly in foil. Put the foil-wrapped banana on a fire or on BBQ coals for about 3-5 minutes. Take if off the coals, open it up and dig out the gooey, chocolatey insides with a fork or spoon. CAUTION: It’s Hot! Use tongs to pull it out of the coals and to peel back the foil.

    Cinnamon Apple
    Much like the bananas above, but this time you use an apple core remover, knife, or the end of a potato peeler to remove the core of an apple but with the apple still intact! You want to make a hole big enough to put in some brown sugar and cinnamon. Wrap the apple in a couple of layers of foil and put in the fire, on the coals for 3-5 minutes. Take it out, peel back the foil and enjoy! CAUTION: It’s Hot! Use tongs to pull it out of the coals and to peel back the foil.

    9 Easy Camping Meals You can Cook without Pots and Pans!

    Forget the pots and pans! This is a hobo’s delight – all the cooking and no mess!! Here are 9 belly-bustin’ camp meals that you and your family can enjoy without using a single pot or pan. No, this is not a magic trick! The secret is……….tin foil! Can you believe it? This durable, non-flammable material is easy to use and dispose of to make cooking a snap. So, leave the pots and pans at home, grab a roll of tin foil and following these easy recipes for simple, yet satisfying camping meals.

    Hobo
    I Thinly slice carrots, onions, and potatoes. Tear off a 12” strip of tin foil. Place a hamburger patty on the foil. Place a layer of vegetables on top. Add salt, pepper or other spices to your liking. Fold the foil over the top and bottom. Fold up the corners so it won’t leak and place on the coals, hamburger side down. It should take 20-30 minutes depending on the heat of your coals. When done, open it up and use a knife and fork to eat directly from the foil.

    Want that barbeque flavor for your Hobo? Put a squirt of BBQ sauce on the hamburger before you put on the vegetables.

    Beef Stew
    This is the same as a Hobo, but a little more up-scale since you are using beef cubes. Thinly slice carrots, onions, and potatoes or maybe add broccoli and cauliflower. Tear off a 12” strip of tin foil. Place beef cubes on the foil. Place a layer of vegetables on top. Add salt, pepper or other spices to your liking. This time add some butter and a couple of tablespoons of water to make gravy! Yum! Fold the foil over the top and bottom. Fold up the corners so it won’t leak and place on the coals, beef side down. It should take 20-30 minutes depending on the heat of your coals. When done, open it up and use a knife and fork to eat directly from the foil.

    Chicken and Corn
    Smear chicken pieces with butter. Spice to your liking and wrap in 12” strip of foil. Lay on the coals, turning the chicken every few minutes for about 20 minutes. The corn can be husked, lathered with butter and wrapped in foil for a nice roasting in about 10 minutes. Another way to do the corn is to pull back the leaves, remove the husk (hair-like fibers), close the leaves, dip the ear of corn in water and place directly on the coals! Should roast nicely in 8-10 minutes, turning often so it doesn’t burn.

    Fish
    In this recipe substitute meat or poultry for fish or shrimp! You can add thinly sliced vegetables or put finely chopped chives, butter and a slice of lemon in a 12” strip of foil. Smaller, lighter fish or shrimp will not take as long to cook so I would expect 3-5 minutes cooking time.

    Ham and Sweet Potato
    In this recipe use chunks of ham, thin slices of sweet potato, (chunks will also work) and a slice of pineapple. Put all this in a 12” strip of foil with a dollop of butter and a sprinkle of brown sugar. Wrap up the foil and put on the coals for 10 minutes each side and you have a tasty ham and sweet potato dinner in 20 minutes!

    Potato
    I use this when I want to add a potato to the meal, like the Fish and lemon meal above. But, I have to start the potato first, since it takes longer to cook than the fish. I take a fork and stab the potato 3-5 times in the front and back, wrap it in foil and bury it in the coals. It usually takes about 30-40 minutes to cook and I can tell when it’s ready by poking it with a fork to see how soft it is. I take it out of the coals, slice it open and stick a slice of hard butter in it! YUM!

    Oriental Chicken
    Use boneless chicken pieces or strips and frozen mixed vegetables. Put the chicken and vegetables in a 12” strip of foil. Add two capfuls of soy sauce, a dash of garlic salt and a sprinkle of brown sugar. Wrap and cook on coals for about 20 minutes, turning every few minutes.

    Breakfast Nest
    Here’s one you can try for breakfast! Take a sausage patty and put it on the foil. Take frozen hash browns and make a little nest on top of the sausage patty. Now comes the tricky part – crack an egg into the nest, wrap-up the foil and cook for about 5-7 minutes, turning every few minutes.

    Mushroom Chicken
    Use boneless chicken pieces or strips, frozen peas and a can of cream of mushroom soup. Put the chicken on a 12” strip of foil; add a couple of tablespoons of soup and a handful of peas. Wrap and cook on coals for about 20 minutes, turning every few minutes. This will be very moist!

    We like to take 8 – 10 potatoes, an Onion, Kielbasa, and a little cooking oil. Peel the Potatoes, cook them in a large pan with the oil for a few minutes, before adding the rest of the ingredients. Salt and Pepper to taste. It’s simple, filling, and delicious. Just add some bread and butter, and you have a meal.

    Mac n Cheese with a little can of Rotel and sliced weenies.

    Buy some campfire pie irons. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=4809692

    These are easy to use and I am sure the kids will enjoy them. All you need is nonstick cooking spray, a loaf of bread, and fillings. I recommend the following filling 1) pizza sauce, cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, etc. 2) canned pie fillings 3) ham and cheese 4) precooked bacon and cheese, just about whatever you like! You can also use them to make toast, eggs, hash browns, and even hamburgers.
