Bringing Dinner Outdoors

Summer is made for entertaining. The weather is good. People are using up their vacation time and the kids are running around like crazy. But what are the best ways to feed a hungry crowd? Bring it all outdoors.

Last week went on a camping trip with my family and our in laws. Talk about getting outdoors! We great fun planning the menu. Here's what we made:

Skillet omelettes

Grilled sandwiches

Steak, pepper and potato skewers

Fruit skewers for dessert (pinapple and peach)

Everyone had a blast....and full tummies too!

Moms, what kind of meals do you serve outdoors during the summer months?

sometimes we will just order a pizza and eat that outside too!

For lunch, sometimes I just serve whatever I would normally serve--but outside on the picnic table. (prepared inside, eaten outside!) ;)

DH does the grilling--mostly burgers, chicken, pork chops...

 We eat out on the porch a lot. Especially breakfast, but cooking inside and carrying out-so one pan meals are good like skillet hash for breakfast. On cooking on the grill. For camping, I like Reynolds foil packet dinners.
