Cooking over the campfire is one of the funnest (is that a word?) ways to prepare food! We bought a wire rack for fire pits a couple years ago, and it works really well with the cast iron skillet. The possibilities for camp food are endless with this little set up! One of my favorite camp dishes is campfire potatoes.
In the picture you can see that I made a mixture of red, purple, and white potatoes. Simply melt a tablespoon or two of coconut oil, bacon fat, or butter to the pan, add the potatoes, and sprinkle with sea salt, pepper, and garlic powder. If you have an onion and some nitrate free turkey sausages to add, that will make it a full meal (add a salad)!
Camping is a really great way to connect with your family and loved ones! When we sit around the fire pit we like to give everyone a chance to tell a story. Sometimes we’ll think of fun questions for everyone to answer. Being purposeful in family time is a crucial ingredient for raising children to be confident, secure, and happy. It helps them know that there is a place where they belong and are loved unconditionally. When you sit by a fire, electronics prohibited, you have a chance to talk, listen, and connect without distraction. Eating healthy, yummy food while you’re there makes it even better!
We actually have a fire pit in our back yard. It’s a nice way to unwind after busy days or weeks! Click here if you’d like one for your yard, too!
