Kids in the Kitchen - In the great outdoors

I join forces with my good friend Carrie @YoungLivingOilLady each week
to bring you this family friendly recipe link up. It is our desire to encourage
families to cook and eat together. Meals cooked at home are healthier, and time
spent together in the kitchen is good for families!

We use Cooking 101 as part of our family homeschool. I’m teaching the boys to
put together healthy family meals, life skills, and budgeting, as well as teaching them tips for cooking in the kitchen. We encourage real food vs. processed food. Let’s bring the family, back to the table!

This week: 
          We're in the woods! 

I found mock tenderloin steak on sale and grabbed them for the grill. We cooked potatoes in the microwave to be quick - but you can wrap them in tin foil and cook them on the hot coals as well. 

I seasoned our steaks with a little salt and pepper - the key is to wait until the fire dies down and the coals are still glowing before adding your steaks - and we don't like to over cook them - rare is best for us. 

No camping trip is complete without s'mores! We did them the easy way and added toasted marshmallows to the tops of chocolate chip cookies. Yummy and simple! The boys helped by gathering fire wood and were in charge of roasting marshmallows and fixing potatoes. They did a great job. 

We are enjoying our time exploring - never a dull adventure with this crew. God bless!
