Simply Sunday: Campfires
As the nights start to turn chilly, I can't help but look forward to a nice campfire. There is something entrancing about the dancing, orange flames and the warmth just wraps you up. There is also the yummy campfire foods that can be made. Hot dogs roasted on a stick or marshmallows lightly toasted (or burned if that is how you like them) taste particularly good. You can also make packets of food in tin foil and then toss them under the coals for a yummy meal. One of my favorite "packet" foods are Banana Boats. You cut a banana in half, length-wise, about 3/4 of the way through and then stuff it with chocolate chips, coconut, marshmallows, whatever you choose. Wrap it and tossit in the embers for about 10-15 minutes. Unwrap, cool slightly and enjoy!
