#29 – Campfire pouch dinner

So here’s something that’s never happened to me before; we did a list item, but I FORGOT it was on our list and didn’t take any photos.  Oops.

When we were kids, we would go camping for 6 weeks in the summer with a few other families.  Usually, the Dads would come up on Saturday mornings, stay until Sunday night, and then it would be us kids with the Mums for the week.  Usually every weekend we’d have a big delicious camp fire pouch dinner; chicken and veggies and baked potatoes all cooked in foil on the fire.  Which is a fair amount of work to make it turn out right and it always felt like a special night.

So when we were planning our first family camping trip, and my brothers decided to join us for the last couple days, I thought it would be great to do a pouch dinner (I planned it, organized things so we’d have the ingredients, and then forgot we were doing it for the list! Baby brain, guys, it’s the gift that keeps on giving).

Our last day camping it rained all day long, but Will made a roaring fire; Eric, Will and Sam put together super delicious pouches, and cooked them to perfection.

Here is the only photo I have; my brother Eric stoically sitting in the rain to ensure the pouches didn’t burn.  What a champ.

    One of our go-to favorite camping meals. I totally understand forgetting to take photos: last year we had to throw *another* party because we completely forgot to get any proof of the first one!
