Farm Share Week 9 July 30-Aug , 2014

This is our last share for the month of July and our first for the month of AUGUST! It’s hard to believe that the end of summer is almost upon us and that the kids will be heading back to school in a few short weeks.

This weekend my family is camping with another family.  I like to prep some meals so we have less work (chopping with dirt all around and a dull knife isn’t what I consider fun) and Saturday night we are having tin foil dinners (healthy style).

I figured I would share a simple (but delicious) dish that can be cooked over or in the campfire with some lovely veggies from our farm share.  These recipes can easily be adapted to be used with different oils to give them different flavours as well as different herbs/meats used as long as you are aware of the cooking times.  I try and keep in mind how quickly each veggie cooks up and slice them accordingly so their cooking times are close.  You can change up the recipes to suit what veggies/meat you have on hand as well.

Ready a large sheet of tin foil (depending on how many people adjust the size)

Put cut up veggies (we use potatoes as a base)
Carrots
Bok Choy
Onion
Zucchini
Corn
Basil
Thyme
Hamburger (we’re going to try Salmon for a veterinarian version this weekend-I’ll report back next week and let you know how it goes)
Sea Salt and Pepper to taste
Drizzle with a hefty amount of oil or cut up butter slices

Fold tin foil into a package.  Get another piece of foil and cover the fold with the solid part of the tin foil and add a 2nd layer.  Repeat until you have 3/4 layers of tin foil.  Place on hot bed of coals while camping or on the grate.  Flip and rotate every 15 minutes.  Ours are quite large and take usually an hour or more to cook.  You can check it (with difficulty) by creating a small opening and checking the veggie softness.

Do you have amazing camping snack recipes or meal recipes that you can prepare before you get there that uses some of the vegetables that you get in your farmshare? Please share it with us-pictures are always welcome.
