Striving for good food in the great outdoors- the pioneer way.

Green Enchilada Stack

Okay, this is our first attempt at completely creating a recipe.  If we did a recipe search, we'd probably burst our bubble of pride and find that we are not all that creative and somebody else already made this up.  But, since we haven't done that we will continue on in our recipe creation state of bliss!

Seems like the Dutch oven lends it self very well to Italian and Mexican type recipes.  Looking back at all the things we have made in the past, there seems to be an abundance of either type of food.  Oh well.

Oniony Roasted Potatoes

Tonight, we grilled steak for the first time for the season.  What goes better with a steak on the grill?  Roasted potatoes of course. 

This recipe was simple to put together and simple to cook.  We'd only do one thing different- reduce the amount of oil that was used.  (The recipe calls for 1/3 cup olive oil, next time we'll try it with 1/4 cup.)

This simple recipe packs easily for camping and is simple to put together in your outdoor, campground kitchen (picnic table & fire ring).

New D.O.!

We got a new D.O. over the weekend!  A Lodge 14 incher!!!

Green Chile Rice and Pumpkin Pie Cobbler

Here are a couple recipes that we fixed just last night for a little barbeque we had  with Matt's cousin and his wife.  We pulled out both Dutch ovens (a standard 10" and a deep 12") to cook up a side dish and a dessert to go along with barbeque chicken breasts on the grill.

Both recipes are really good and super simple to make.  Simple enough that we would do these while camping too.
