How something so simple makes things so easy

I recently took my girl scouts on a campout. We planned to stay in Covered Wagons! Cool, right? Yep until my girls discovered we would be roughing it. Outdoor latrines, no running water and most of all cooking over the fire only. 139

My girls and I were up to the task. We set out to create our menu. Friday night dinner was hot dogs and s’mores. Saturday for breakfast,  scrambled eggs, hash browns, bacon and toast. Lunch was intended to be cold lunchmeat sandwiches but we quickly decided we wanted them hot. Dinner Saturday night consisted of chicken and pepper packets and cheesy potatoes.

We had so much fun cooking over the fire that we ended up doing just about everything over the fire, snacks and all.

Reynolds wrap made many of our meals so much easier! For breakfast we were able to toast our bread over the fire on a grate covered with foil. How great is that.






Lunch that day we decided to put our cold lunchmeat sandwiches in Reynolds Wrap and lay them on the hot embers. 10 minutes on each side and we had a great hot super sandwich. No pictures here unfortunately… we were hungry!!!

For dinner we once again turned to Reynolds wrap for more Meal Magic. We placed our chicken and peppers into a square of non stick foil and folded it up into a pocket. We followed suit with our potatoes, a pat of butter and some bacon pieces. These packets came together so easily and cooked up in a half hour!

By the time we left camp, my girls and I were much more confident in our fire cooking abilities! I am looking forward to experimenting more with Reynolds Wrap. You can find the Reynolds® recipe collection by following this link :
