My family and I are going camping this coming weekend and I was wondering if anyone has any ideas for healthy,fun things to bring to eat? (I'm not sure if healthy and fun can be used in the same sentence!)J/K!
Any thoughts would be appreciated!

My guys like hobos ... make a packet out of heavy-duty foil (make sure the edges are folded tight to make a leak-proof seam) and then load it up with whatever. Put a bonless chicken breast or a lean-meat patty in there with sliced onion, potatoes, mushrooms, carrots, zucchini (as much or as little as you want of what you like) and add a spoon full of your favorite condensed soup (like cream of chicken, cream of mushroom, cream of celery) which will keep everything from drying out. Throw it on hot coals, turning often until done. You may have to open one up to test it for doneness.
Kids love making up their own hobos and I've even seen kids eat things they don't normally eat at home when they get to make it themselves.
Have fun on your camping trip. It's just too hot here to get out in the woods right now.... gonna wait til Fall.

That sounds wonderful! Thank you for the wonderful idea! My boys will love doing that and will think it's cool to make their own stuff!
