Cookin' Up My Favorites!

Food is always coming in thr house and then flying out of my fridge and cupboards. I took a minute the other day to look at what my kiddos were eating. Some of it was good and some of it was not so good! So, I brought some of the good old easy summer recipes back.

Campfire Apple "Pie"
Apples of your choice
Pot holder
Stick entire apple on a stick.
Cook over open fire or grill until tender to touch ( use pot holder to squeeze)
Peel off burnt skin and eat. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar if desired.

Pineapple Dream
Cut a fresh pineapple into circles of half circles 1/2-1 inch thick.
Place on grill for 2-3 minutes on each side.
You can also cut into chunks and use kabobs or roasting sticks and a fire.
Add ham chunks on kabobs for a meal.

Pickle & Pork Poppers
1 pound bacon of your choice
Dill pickles ( 1 per bacon slice)
Tooth Picks (soaked for 5-10 minutes in water before use)

Wrap pickle in bacon. Secure with soaked toothpick.
Cook for about 5 minutes or until bacon is to desired crispness.
**If using store bought already cooked bacon, cook over low heat to allow pickle to get warm and avoiding burning the bacon.

For hot days... Frozen watermelon and grapes are a super treat. Also, Freezing pudding in paper cups with a spoon stuck inside makes for calcium rich treats!
