Hobo stew is great for camp cooking

RICHMOND — This is the time of year when folks like to go camping or cook outdoors. I like to try new food items either on the camping trail or out on my outdoor grill.

Here are some recipes I have tried that were really good.

HOBO STEW

INGREDIENTS:

4 hamburger patties or use 1 lb of ground beef

4 potatoes (raw) sliced

4 carrots sliced

1 large onion sliced

4 pats of butter

salt to taste

4 large piece of aluminum foil

DIRECTIONS:

Put patty or hamburger meat with all ingredients. Fold foil around each of the mixture. Cook over coals for about 20 minutes. If you know how to do a “drug store” wrap, that works best to keep all the ingredients inside.

Oh, this camp fire stuff brings back such memories of my days as a Brownie Scout leader.

I went on a camp out and thought I really knew how to build a fire. I tried matches to get the fire going and ran out of them.

Then I remembered from my days of as a nursing student that fat burns, and I shared that fact with the girls. Then I poured the only oil we brought onto the fire, and wow, it caught on fast.

Now remember, I was teaching Brownies to start a fire. They got so scared that their body fat would burn, they stayed inside their tents. Oyes, and I used up all the oil so we had some strange meals for the rest of our camping trip as we had no oil to put in the pots for other stuff.

CAMPFIRE BANANA SPLIT

INGREDIENTS:

One banana

Your favorite toppings. (I love the chocolate type.)

DIRECTIONS:

Split banana lengthwise, push open like a hot dog bun AND add toppings.

Wrap in foil and cook over campfire for 3-5 minutes

Did you know that if it rains and you are camping in a tent, that you should not touch the sides of the tent or you’ll get soaked. I learned that lesson the hard way!

HOT DOG ON A STICK

INGREDIENTS:

1  hot dog

1 uncooked biscuit (I use the canned type.)

  • Shop your refrigerator, part two: Casseroles

    Last article, we wrote about making soup out of leftover ingredients you have around the house. With this winter giving us one more round of snow early in the month, a hot bowl of soup turned out to be a good way to stay warm while staying home.

  • Let’s have a Mardi Gras party in Kentucky

    It’s the time of year when the people in New Orleans celebrate a festival called Mardi Gras. Many states now do the same. Some call it “Fat Tuesday” which I have never understood till I went to New Orleans (five times) and saw all of the excitement for myself.

  • Beat the winter blues with meatballs

    When it’s this cold outside it’s nice to warm up with some good comfort food.
    I can think of few things more wonderful than the smell of simmering meatballs coming from the kitchen while I cuddle with my two young children, and a few good books, on a brisk winter day.

    After the kids come in from building snow forts and making snow angels, I like to have big cup of hot chocolate with extra marshmallows. But if you really want to indulge after playing in the snow, try these melt-in-your-mouth cookies.

  • GinaNoemugpic.jpg Keeping food safe during emergencies

    Today’s article is one I have submitted before, but the information in it is worth reading again.
    The food in refrigerators and freezers represents a significant investment. Winter storms can cause power outages that may last from a few hours to several days before electricity can be restored.
