Camping Out Season

Time to enjoy a camp out. This can be done anywhere even if it is only in your backyard or at one of the campgrounds like in the Shawnee National Forest. Good food , good times and the outdoors goes great side by side To get you started here is a potato dish that is easy to fix on the grill, over an open fire and even in the oven if you choose. Enjoy:

1 lb Yukon Gold potatoes, scrubbed
½ red onion, chopped
2 Tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 green onions, sliced
½ cup sour cream

Dice potatoes into 1-inch chunks. Place in a pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, cook for about a minute, then drain and cool completely.
In a bowl, toss potatoes and red onion together with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Transfer to two large squares of aluminium foil and wrap up into airtight packages.Refrigerate the foil packets until ready to cook.
Rake the coals of an open fire until they are flat with no flames. Place the packets on top and cook for about 10 minutes per side. Use tongs to flip the packets. Check on them occasionally to make sure the potatoes are not burning. If they are, move off the coals and onto the hot ashes.
Open the potato packets and sprinkle generously with chopped green onion. Serve at once with plenty of sour cream.

 make up a smore  making station filled with a few different types of chocolate, graham crackers, mallows and anything else you would like. This way everyone can have fun creatively inventing their own Smore
