Holidays are here plan now to come to Karumba, QLD for a long weekend
A fire is not just to keep us warm once the sun has gone down. We make good food on it too, which takes a little planning, but thats half the fun. Before I go, I might make pasta sauces, salad dressings, spice mixes and treats to take along and add to local produce these days many campsites are near decent farm shops.
1. Prepare a Just pitched dinner
After the effort of travelling and pitching a tent, make your first meal something that just needs heating up. Italian meatballs and a tomato sauce made at home and then dangled over the campfire in a Billy can, then some pasta, is ideal.
2. Take campfire treats
One of the joys of camping is sitting around the campfire at night, chatting with a beer and some snacks. I make spiced nuts at home and bring them along, which are great to share with friends.
3. Childrens bedtime treats
My children display boundless energy when theyre in a field, so to slow them down for bedtime I make them some real hot chocolate.
4. Something veggie
Cooking outside can mean a relentless diet of meat. I balance our camping diet with vegetarian meals.
5. The festival pie
In the past I would never have dreamed of taking a pie to a festival and would have instead perused the stalls offering international cuisine. As I now have three children and cant afford to purchase festival food for everyone, I take a large festival pie to feed the family. It should do two meals if kept in a cool box. Something best eaten cold, like a lamb pie.
6. Some beans
I pack some meals that wont suffer too much if I cant keep the cool box super cool. Like quesadillas. filled with beans, salsa and cheese. To whip up lunch quickly, I make the bean mixture at home and then only have to assemble the quesadillas and heat them up.
Spruce up burgers and sausages over the campfire with homemade relishes and chutneys that you have brought along to camp.
8. Sweet treats
When setting up camp, I keep the children quiet with a cake or two. Some cakes travel better than others; ginger cake, lemon drizzle and brownies are tried and tested.
9. Store cupboard dinner
Lay something on for a quick and easy lunch. For example, pasta served with pesto prepared at home.
10. Onepot meal
A onepot meal is good if you dont have many pans, limited washing up facilities or only one burner to cook on. You can include the carbs in the pot such as pasta or potatoes or eat it with bread warmed over the campfire
