for camping, you could make veggie kebobs, or vegetable soup/minestrone.

I have been wanting to comment and let you know how much I love your blog! From contextual clues, I think we live in the same county, and we are in the same line of work. Thanks for all the great ideas and inspiration!

My husband is a lifelong vegetarian, and as a child, he always felt left out when people would roast hot dogs at campouts. Now when we go camping, we always bring veggie dogs and have our own hot dog roast. We like the Yves dogs (you can buy them at Safeway near the produce/ health food section). I emailed the company with a compliment a while back and they sent several free product coupons. It might be worth a try!

Thanks for the great ideas cathy and Sarab! I think after we use up our (free) hotdogs we will buy some veggie dogs. I have to admit that I love polish sausage taste though!

Sarab do you have a blog? We probably do live in the same area!

Here is a great dessert recipe for camping:

Banana Splits

Slice a Banana longways into four pieces. Place on a square of foil. Sprinkle mini marshmellow, chocolate chips, and pecans over bananas. Wrap up the foil and place on the grill. Check banana split in 5 to 7 minutes. Banana split is ready when the marshmellows are melted.

Dove: Sounds Delicious! I will definitely be adding bananas to our camping grocery list:)
