When you feel the need to sleep under the stars and count the number of constellations while sipping some hot chocolates and toasting marshmallows, it is hard to ignore the nagging voice that sets up ideas for a great weekend outdoors. But for the food lovers out there, staying in a tent in the middle of nowhere and surviving on small amounts of food and snacks would not seem like a great idea. So here are some recipes that you can use next time you pitch the tent in a forest.
1. Breakfast potatoes
Even if you are not inside one of those fancy camper trailers for sale down the block with a kitchen and a sink, potatoes are the easiest thing to make and also clean up. Prepare cubed russet potatoes, margarine or olive oil, onions, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers and for taste get some garlic powder, salt and pepper. Fry the onions lightly at first and then add the rest of the ingredients sans the seasoning with another tablespoon of oil you prefer. Add a bit of water and cover the pan with a foil so that the vegetables get steamed in the campfire. After steaming for a couple of minutes uncover and stir until the potatoes have the preferred crispy texture. Serve along with bread or eggs or other breakfast food you love.

2. Orange blueberry muffins
This recipe requires a bit of work before you leave for your outdoor trip so make some time before your departure to get this delicious recipe ready; the time spent on this will not go to waste! Prepare out-of-box or your own recipe of blueberry muffin dough. Then grab some oranges, cut them in half and scoop out the insides; you can use the insides to make some juice for the trip. Then fill one half of the orange peel with blueberry muffin and fit the other half of the orange and wrap the whole blueberry muffin filled orange with two to three layers of foil. Then when you go for the campfire cook out, which you will have whether you are in using one of the 4wd camper trailers hire or a tent, just throw in the foil wrapped oranges into the middle of the fire and cook them for around ten minutes while occasionally turning them. Sometimes the orange peel would blacken but it will insulate the dough to cook it with a tangy orange flavor, to perfection.
Whether you are pitching the tent in your own backyard or going somewhere, some camping food are too yummy to pass off trying.
