Morsels of Life - Burger and Veggies Foil Pack

When we decided to go camping near Hawk Mountain, we knew we'd need food. However, I wasn't sure what to bring. Asking around, it seemed like foil packs are pretty easy and popular. I'd never made foil meals before, so if you've got any hints for next time, please share in the comments! The concept's pretty straightforward - wrap everything in foil, and then cook it over a fire. Since I made these last minute, I just threw together what I had on hand. You can easily customize based on your preferences. One thing I do recommend is using a double layer of foil and making your seal along the top. A single foil layer can result in burning through, and the seam on top allows you to move the foil packet around more easily when cooking as well as easier opening.

What are some of your favorite camping foods?

Morsels of Life - BBQ Tofu Sticks

I've made this BBQ tofu at least 5 times this week already - they're that good! And, as an added bonus, it's a super easy recipe. Just cut up some tofu, flour it, and then fry. Totally delicious eaten immediately, and pretty good even when reheated. This recipe is definitely something that you could make a large batch of and then reheat later on (assuming there's any left)! I've tried this BBQ tofu various different ways, and although my preferred method takes a little more time with an overnight marinating step, you could easily skip the overnight marinade step and still have some tasty BBQ tofu sticks. I also tried various "flours" to coat the BBQ tofu sticks, and I have to say, I like corn meal the best since it provides some additional texture and crunch. I've also used regular flour and bread crumbs. These tofu sticks would be perfect as an appetizer or snack. Give them a try, and let me know what you think!

What's your favorite breading material?
