RL will require my presence for a few days, so I won't be able to post any recipes.
Kathryn had a great idea to do a "camping recipe" post where we could share recipes for cookouts or camping.
Hopefully there are campers/hikers who can help out because when I go camping I bring things like instant oatmeal, bagels with cream cheese and hot dogs cooked over the fire on sticks. I usually bring bags of cut up and easy to snack on fruit and vegetables too.
I have seen dump cake made in a camping style dutch oven (they have legs that allow them to stand on coals) over a campfire and it was so good...
For hiking we put instant milk powder and cereal in baggies. Then when it is time to eat, add water and shake it in the bag. This stuff is nasty and really should only be eaten if you are starving after walking all day with all your worldly goods strapped to your back while being bitten by mosquitos and horseflies. Oh yes, you should also have feet covered in blisters and a sunburn in the places you couldn't reach with sunscreen.
Then it tastes OK.
