With this article, we will consider a couple of other ideas that can also make your camping meals fun and enjoyable. The first is something called foil packs. Foil packs are quite simple. You spread out a large sheet of aluminum foil, add whatever ingredients you like, seal it up on the ends, and place it on a bed of hot charcoal. Remember not to use too much charcoal. Each briquette adds about 25 degrees F. Sample ingredients might include potatoes, onions, carrots, hamburger, a couple spoonfuls of campbells soup (such as cream of mushroom), salt and pepper to taste, and a bit of water for moisture during cooking. Otherwise, it will probably burn to the inside of the foil pack. Another fun way to cook outdoors is with dutch ovens.
You can cook almost anything in a dutch oven and you can find lots of recipes on the internet. Here is a sample recipe that we learned from some boy scouts at a recent webelos day camp. Slice the butter into hunks and add to the mixture. Pour 7up or Sprite on top. Personally, I wonder if it wouldn’t be better to put the peaches on the bottom so you don’t have to put as much effort into stirring the cake mix.
Some experimentation may be warranted. The kids can help make foil packs, and even a small child could do most of the dump cake up to the point of adding the coals. Beat until batter is smooth and no longer sticks to the spoon. Cut dough into tiny noodles. Add noodles to boiling water. They cook quickly and are done when they float to the surface.
Many couples are willing to spend big bucks on the cake because every guest at the reception will undoubtedly stop by the cake table to admire the details and creativity of the cake chosen. But for some guests, who may not be able to attend the reception or who may need to leave before the cake cutting, there are new options available. One such option offered by some bakeries is the availability of miniature cakes or cupcakes decorated to match or coordinate with a full sized cake. Another option for those without a constricting budget is to purchase the miniature cakes for each and every guest scheduled to be at the wedding reception.
