It's September -- perfect weather for sitting by a nice fire pit, visting with friends and family, renditions of Kumbaya (well maybe not so much), and cozying up next to that honey of yours in your favorite hoodie.
If you're not a stranger to a camp fire, you're probably a pro at cooking up the perfect toasted marshmallow. And, if you're feeling crazy, you accompany a graham cracker and piece of chocolate with that mallow -- and you've got yourself a nice, wholesome s'more! But, for some of us, we're looking for something new to spice things up.
The fam and I headed to Swede Point this weekend with the ol' camper. I thought this would be the perfect weekend to test out some of the camp fire foods I had found while snooping around the blogs this past week. We had some that fell a bit flat, some that were good, and some that were stellar!!
- Chocolate Chips
- Crushed Walnuts
- Crushed Walnutes
- Large marshmallows
- Hershey's chocolate syrup
- Crushed Nuts, oreos, m&ms, or any other sweet treat crushed up
- 1 pound Shredded potatoes (thawed)
- 6 oz sour cream
- 1 cup shredded cheese
- 1/2 cup Cream of Chicken Soup
- Bacon Bits (optional)
- Whatever Else You'd like to Add to this Mixture
- Pie Crust
- Pie Filling (or chocolate chips, marshmallows, etc.)
- PAM Spray
Hope you enjoy these, and please let me know how they go, and if you have any tips for improving these recipes. I've kind of put my special touch on each in order to make them easy and less time-consuming.
