Camp Dutch Oven Game Hens

I brought some of my flavored game hens with me on the last camp out...
Game Hens

Filled the bottom of the dutch oven with cubed potatoes, onions and garlic..

Seasoned the birds with straight salt and pepper, then added a bit of chicken stock to the pot..

I let the potatoes get a head start while burning down the wood for hot coals...

Broke the logs up and placed a few hot coals on top and let her cook.
I rotated both the pot and lid while the birds cooked.

 It was a rainy, cool day. Really nice....and the fish were biting. :)

The birds took about 45 minutes. They smelled SO good. :)

I went for a leg and thigh ... 

The dutch oven game hens, potatoes and garden tomatoes...

When I picked up the leg, the bone slipped right out. They were tender!

Wish I had a lake in my backyard, so I could replicate the dining experience at home. :) The birds were delicious!

The weather has cooled off here. I'm getting ready to make a pot of bacon and corn chowder for supper. Time for comfort food!

Just two more days til election. I will be glad when it's over. What ever happens, I'm not planning on changing the way I live. :)

Hope everyone has a great day, thanks for stopping by!

Thank you Sap! :D
It was pretty nice at the lake. Even caught a few fish. :)
I'm ready for the election to be over. Heck, why can't we have 50 candidates to choose from, like the Miss America contests. lol

Hope you're having a great week!

lol Thanks Tokarev!
After posting these pics, I'm hungry too. I'm going to dig one of these birds out of the freezer for supper tonight. Won't be as enjoyable as eating while fishing, but right now, I don't mind.
It's great to see you, thanks for stopping by! :)
