Campfire Cuisine.....

Todd and I are on our annual vacay thru Beautiful British Columbia!  An unfortunate turn of events (aka mudslide at Lake Louise) inspired us to take on a more "scenic route" thru the southern part of the province - and lo and behold - we discovered some awesome new places we have never seen before!  Our first night of camping had us in the quiet and serene Yahk Provincial Park - so fun!  We were thankful to get the last spot on a Saturday night!! 

Long road to Canal Flats: Settler's Road

I love camp cooking - and surprisingly, I cook more than hotdogs and marshmallows when we go to camp.  One of my favorite things to cook is fresh produce in foil pockets - easy and delish!

Campfire veggie pockets

2 small zuchinnis, chopped 1" thick rounds
1 red pepper, seeded and chopped into 1" pieces
2 shallots, sliced OR 1/2 red onion, sliced
3-4 cloves garlic , minced
1/2 container button mushrooms, cut in half
2 tbsp butter
salt & pepper
2 sheets of sturdy tin foil

Overlap 2 sheets of tin foil; shiny side up.  Wash and prep your veggies - drop dollops of butter throughout the veggies, sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Seal up tight - try to lay out the package evenly - not creating a "purse" more like a "clutch".

I didn't actually cook on an open fire - but rather on our mini grill - got the grill nice and hot, then cooked my veggie clutch for about 15 mins before putting on my chicken breasts on (nothin fancy - just basted with some organic, gluten free BBQ sauce).  By the time CBs were done, the veggies were perfect!!!

Who says you can't eat awesomely when camping??
And served up with a delicious Growers!!
