Easy to make campfire food...







I brought a pre-cooked ham with me for sandwiches but ended up making a couple of side dishes to go with it.

I fried a few pieces of bacon, cooked some minced onion and garlic in the drippings, added corn, hominy, butter, red pepper flakes and seasoned with salt and pepper.

Cubed some potatoes, yellow squash, zuchinni, scallions and garlic.... cooked in butter until tender, topped with cheese, covered until the cheese melted, seasoned with kosher salt and cracked black pepper.



It was a fairly quick meal for the first night of camping...





Breakfast the next morning was the usual biscuits with sausage gravy..

I started a skillet of potatoes with onions first, then the pie tins of biscuits. Browned a pound or so of bulk spicy sausage...



added my flour, milk and seasonings to make my pot of sausage gravy....



scrambled eggs in butter...



The pan of hot biscuits...





Biscuits and sausage gravy, fried potatoes, scrambled eggs and fruit...



Biscuits and gravy are so easy to make...gives me extra time to relax around the campfire. :)

Cowgirl, as always everything looks delicious. I hope your getting some rain out of the front coming across the plains.

You've, once again, given me the inspiration to update my blogs. I've been having more fun taking pictures, then sitting down and doing an update.

You're much more disciplined than I am...;)

Capt. Ron, Thank you! I got about 3/4" of rain yesterday.. it smells soooo good! :)
I hope you find the time to post your pics.. I love looking at them. I agree it's more fun being out there taking pics than sitting by a computer.
Good to see you! :)

What do you call that attachment on the end of the propane hose?

cowgirl said...

Jim, it's a weed burner. They are great for starting the fire, even when the wood is damp.
Thanks for stopping by! :)

I just wanted to say that you're awesome and adorable.

I've been following your blog for a couple weeks now, preparing for a bluegrass camping festival in Arkansas I'm FINALLY leaving for this afternoon. (I'm from Illinois. Arkansas is VERY exciting.) I'm going to try and mass produce your biscuits and gravy for hundreds of hippies during the communal breakfast! Wish me luck!

Also, thanks for sharing your posts with the world. I admire you and am very jealous. Someday I'll get out of this city and live off the land, like I've always dreamed. :)
