Camping Trip ~ Campfire Mac n' Cheese
This is the fire ring that we cooked on. We bring along a tri-pod as well.
Meal prep - noodles boiled and cheeses mixed but not melted. I did this the day before we went camping.
This is how we ended up cooking our first night's dinner. On the bottom I put a mix of vegetables, and butter on a griddle over the fire. On the tri-pod, I put the mini-pie pans on another griddle, then covered them with foil. With a careful eye, rotating, and lowering, we pulled off making our first ever camfire mac n' cheese.
I was so afraid I'd burn the bottoms of the mac n' cheese but I did not. Oh so good too!
We worked off the pasta and cheese on a long bicycle ride too. It was hot and humid, but we survived.
