A Camping We Will Go

We are taking the kids camping for the first time this weekend. 
We are kind of cheating. 
We will sleep in a cabin with beds. 
The bathrooms are kind of far away though. And we will cook over an open fire. 
So we are not totally cheating. Just kinda.

I've started preparing our camp fire food. 
Roasted Chicken with Veggie foil packets
You can make them ahead of time and freeze them. 
That way they work as an ice pack for the cooler. 

Chop up potatoes, onions, and chicken breast. Add fresh green beans, baby carrots and lots of spices!

Then add to tin foil, wrap and freeze!

I then packed the foil packets in zip lock freezer bags so the juices don't leak in the cooler. 

Now I just need to get packing everything else! 
Are you doing anything fun and relaxing this Labor Day weekend?


  1. Looks like they will be YUMMY!!! Sp excited....
