Venison Backstrap Benedict and Campfire Fajitas

I had a nice time camping this week. The weather was a bit cool at night but the campfire felt nice and the food tasted extra good.:)

The weedburner came in handy for starting the fire...

I cooked some bacon for the hominy and a few onions and peppers for the fajitas..

I marinated a venison backstrap (cut in half) and two flat iron steaks.. threw them on the fire and added onions, garlic, hominy, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to the skillet of the bacon drippings.

heated tortillas...

my venison fajita....

The next morning I fried some sausage patties and heated the slices of the venison backstrap.

toasted some english muffins...topped them with the venison backstrap..

a couple of eggs over easy and then I made a hollandaise sauce to top it off...

The venison backstrap benedict was sooooo tasty. :) One of my favorite breakfasts while out there.

I am ready to go back .. the weekend was extra nice for some reason. Maybe I was just overdue for a campout. :)

You're an amazing campfire cook. Your open-air meals are better than most folks can make in the kitchen. I used to camp some and always preferred it being cool enough that the campfire was actually needed. Did you catch anything?

lol Larry, I still owe you an e-mail!! I haven't forgotten!!
Thanks for the nice comment.
I love cooking over a fire. :)
The air was nice and crisp so the campfire did feel nice.

Only caught 2 fish and another one was given to me. :)
It was a fun weekend though.
Thanks again Larry!

If your as comfortable in the outdoors as you are when your home, your doing it right.
It's apparent from your many post that you all are very comfortable in the great outdoors!

The key to great outdoor living is not to fight the elements but to embrace them and work with nature not against it, IMHO.

Looks and sounds like ya got it licked.

God bless, K.
