Cooking Like a Pioneer

I’ve always enjoyed cooking outside over a campfire. I recently started cooking in a Dutch oven over hot coals for a real pioneer experience. I like the fact that it requires me to be outside, enjoying the day, rather than being stuck in the kitchen looking out my window. I can hear the ducks quacking and the rooster crowing, and even the breeze rustling the grass, as I stir the pot and mess around with a campfire. (For a full article on Campfire Cooking in a Dutch Oven visit my post over at The Prepper Project.)

Last night I made tacos over a campfire and they tasted great. Unfortunately I got busy cooking and didn’t take as many photos as I wanted, so I guess I’ll need to do this again real soon!

Mmmmm, love the smell of meat browning over a wood fire!

Shadow thinks this outdoor cooking thing is the bomb…food, on his level, but just outside the rope limit!

Someone is very interested in all this outdoor cooking :)
