camping recipes..

we recently went to dumont dunes and if you know us, which you should by now if your here, we love to camp and i love to cook while camping.. nothing better then sitting outside the trailer enjoying a meal cooked outside on my "outdoor kitchen"... which consists of the "stove" below and a bbq grill.. I can always use the stove/oven/microwave in the trailer, which I did this trip a few times because of wind and sand but usually everything is cooked outside..



turkey chili

prep time: 10 minutes
cooking time: 30 - 60 minutes (depending on how much time you have)
servings:  4
ingredients:

1 lb ground turkey
2 ( 16 oz) cans chili ready or mexican style diced tomatoes
1 (16 oz) can of kidney beans
1 (16 oz) can of black beans (or pinto it's usually whatever i have in the pantry)
1/2 package of "hot" taco seasoning (i use schilling)
olive oil

a few turns around your large pot with the olive oil.. heat over a medium high and place turkey in pot and cook until evenly brown and crumbly.. add taco seasoning.. cook for about 2 -3 minutes.. add tomatoes and beans (don't drain them) bring to a boil.. reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 30-60 minutes..



for breakfast one morning we had tomatoes and eggs with salami which was inspired by a dish in the food network magazine.. and tina makes something similar, not really, kinda like, i stole her idea sorda maybe not sure..

tomatoes and eggs

prep time: 5 minutes
cooking time: 1 hour 15 minutes
servings:  4

ingredients:

olive oil
4 ounces deli sliced salami, roughly chopped
2 cans of italian style diced tomatoes
8 eggs
4 flour tortillas

two turns with the olive oil around your large skillet over medium high heat..  add salami, cook until salami starts to brown a little about 5 minutes.  add cans of tomato and cook on medium low for about an hour.. check on it and stir every know and then.. your basically waiting for all the liquid to evaporate and the tomatoes to make a rich thick sauce.. towards the end i go in with the back of my spoon and mash some of the tomatoes.. when its the consistency you like make 4 indentions in the mixture for the eggs.  break 8 eggs into the 4 indentions (so basically 2 eggs per indention), cover and cook until the whites are set and yokes are cooked to your liking. we like sunny side up.. remove eggs and tomatoes .. we used flour tortilla's to dip into our eggs and tomatoes..

now i had some tomatoes left over and i reserved them for that nights dinner i took 1 slice of bacon sauteed it in a pan until slightly crispy i added 1 can of drained cut green beans sauteed for about 3 minutes with the bacon then added my left over tomatoes.. and simmered for about 10-15 minutes.. simply delicious..
