So you're going on a camping trip and you're not sure where to start when it comes to having easy meals on hand for the family. Here's a few simple recipes and ideas that I took along with us last year when we went camping (or "glam"ping as I liked calling it) from weelicious and a few other sites I love.
Homemade Graham Crackers (and of course big bars of chocolate and a bag of marshmallows for s'mores!)
Wee Granola- the perfect breakfast with some milk or baggies full for a hiking pick me up!
Breakfast Sandwich: Make these at home, wrap them individually in foil and pop them over the fire to start the day.
Banana Dog Bites: Whether you bring all the ingredients with you or make them ahead, these are a fun lunch packed with everything you need to keep up your energy when you're out and about.
Wild Wheat Berry Salad: Don't forget to bring some whole grains on your trip!
Grilled Veggie Kabobs: I packed up tons of these kabobs in foil so all I needed to do was toss them on the camp fire.
Avocado Hummus: A creamy spread that's perfect as a dip with cut up vegetables or in a pita pocket with some sliced tomatoes and sprouts.
Chocolate Chip Granola Bars: A camping trip just wouldn't be a camping trip without them!
Skirt Steak Fajitas: We took these on our camping trip and they were a huge hit with everyone. Just marinade the meat at home and put it in a cooler. Don't forget your sauté pan too! This is a definite "glamping" recipe, but when everyone's stuffing their tortillas with guacamole and salsa, they'll be thrilled!
Cheesy Corn on the Cob: Instead of steaming the corn, just toss it on the grill and then slather it with butter and cheese.
Spinach Cake Muffins: A big bag of greens isn't going to stay fresh out in the woods, but don't worry because by eating these you'll still get your greens!
Banana Chocolate Chip Bread: There's nothing like a big slice off this loaf for breakfast or even dessert!
Out of This World Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies: You can't forget a big bag of these!
