A Campout Meal - Indoors!

A few weeks after our camping trip to Arkansas
we enjoyed a campout meal - indoors!

We have a nephew and two nieces living nearby while they are in college 
and we have them over to eat once a week.  
The campout meal was a hit with them 
and afterwards we enjoyed a slide show of pictures from the camping trip.

While Mr. H. cooked hobo meals on the grill,
I boiled some fresh corn on the cob on the stove,
baked biscuits in a cast iron skillet,

and made an apple pie, also in a cast iron skillet.

Shh!  Don't tell, but I used a pre-made pie crust and a can of apple pie filling... ;-)
It was SO easy and delish.

A campout meal is fun!

Yes they are, and whether it's biscuits, cornbread, apple pie or apple crisp, they're all the better baked in cast iron skillets.

The hobo dinners I remembered from camp inspired me as a young wife to bake other meals in foil packets. It saved me time, including on cleanup. Just meat, vegetables, sometimes potatoes, sometimes not, seasonings, a bit of this and that, and baked at 450 for 25 minutes or so.
