Friday Foto: Campfire Cookin'

I'm bucking recent tradition and foregoing a recipe in today's Friday Foto. We're on the road, attending our 10-year college reunion this weekend, so our time is over-committed already! Please don't hold it against us!

Last weekend we took the girls for their first camping trip of the summer. We pitched our tent in Woodland Valley, at the base of Slide Mountain, the tallest peak in the Catskill Mountains. As per usual lately (when it comes to car camping), we did all of our cooking over a wood fire. Hot dogs. Roasted marshmallows. Pouch potatoes (sliced Yukon gold potatoes, seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic, olive oil, and butter. And Chores (S'mores, but made with chocolate chips cookies instead of graham crackers and bars of chocolate... try it! You'll love it!).

Enjoy the photo montage. See you next week!

Wow- I'm going to have to try a Bronski s'more soon. Those looked great. Enjoy the camping.

Hope you guys enjoy the reunion.

Wonderful photos, Pete and Kelli! So glad you're having such a great time. No worries on no Friday Foto post this week. And as you know I'm a huge fan of cookie s'mores. ;-) The Chocolate Chip Cookie ones are our favorites, too. :-)

Have a fantastic reunion weekend, you guys!

We're headed camping this weekend too. I love campfire food.

We make potato packets too, even on the grill at home sometimes.

Still searching for the perfect graham cracker sub though, other cookies just don't cut it for me. I might try making some graham crackers this week, my first attempt...we'll see!
