Campfire Fare

21 09 2009

Another nifty part of camping is being able to cook outside, all primitive like.

One thing we cooked, and excuse the absence of photos but yours truly should not have been handling expensive pieces of equipment while her equilibrium was all screwy, was Hot Wings.
You Need:
* raw chicken wings, skin on (available at your local butcher)
* Frank’s Hot Sauce… well, probably any hot sauce, but Frank’s has a complex taste
* A grill. We prefer charcoal as it gives a nice smokey flavor.
* Tongs. (Learned this one the hard way)
You Do:
* After the grill’s hot, put the wings on the cooking surface
* Douse in hot sauce
* Let cook
* flip
* Go to 10
* repeat as needed until wings are salmonella free
*Watch fights ensue over who eats the last one

Also, Joe brought a dutch oven.
No, not like this:

(fart in the sheets then throw the blanket over your bedmates head)

or this (first couple seconds are of the previous bit, which includes an anatomically correct, yet blurred, play-doh man):

(well, kinda)

but like this:

Dutch Oven Proper

Dutch Oven Proper

The Girls made: “Stuff we Found at Wal*Mart and Thought Would Go Well Together”
You Need (we used all canned products):
* Family/large size Cream of Chicken soup, condensed
* Black beans
* Chili Beans
* Red Kidney Beans
* Mixed Veggies (corn, carrots, beans)
* diced potatoes
* (optional)2 fresh zucchini, cut into 1/2″ pieces, then into quarters
You Do:
* Dump everything into pot. Do not drain beans/veggies, everything goes in.
* Stir
* Place on embers
* Stir/rotate
* Serve
* Watch people fight over who gets the last of the stew

When I think about the amount of meat consumed… All those steaks (including, of course, Teppo’s Breakfast Steak with a side of plastic particle cancer)….

I am also fairly certain that one of our doctors is capable of murder. I wish you had seen him freak the hell out about that smoke detector. I was actually scared.

motel 6 = frightening.
Maybe they’re different your way, but I’d rather sleep in my car.

It all sounds yummy. The 1st Dutch oven is more fun. My wife doesn’t agree

Your wife is correct.
