Summer is in full swing, and I am planning all our weekend camping trips. I created this menu planner to make shopping, prep and packing easier.
The camping menu planner has five sections you can complete: day, menu, grocery list, supply list and prep list. It will keep you organized when you’re trying to think through everything you’ll need to prepare meals at the campsite. The menu planner is for a weekend camping trip, but you can print out extra copies if you’re planning a longer trip.
Here are the downloadable versions of the camping menu planner:
Campfire baked potatoes are one of the easiest meals to make when you’re camping. Add a few toppings to a campfire baked potato and you’ve got a satisfying dinner. Billy and I made campfire baked potatoes a few weekends ago while camping in Blackhawk Memorial Park.
We topped our potatoes with chili, cheddar and chives from our garden.
Begin by wrapping your potatoes in two layers of heavy-duty aluminium foil. Seal both layers well. Any gaps could lead to burning.
Then, place the potatoes over warm coals but not directly in the fire. As the potatoes cooked, our fire got bigger and hotter. Every once in a while we moved our potatoes so they were in the heat, but not in the flames.
After an hour or so has passed, check the potatoes for doneness.
Add some heated chili, cheddar and chives and dinner’s ready!
