With gorgeous sunsets!
And a beautiful lighthouse to admire as well!
We had a lot of fun and plenty of time for relaxation. It's so nice to just get away and do nothing but relax, have fun, and enjoy each others company. We had a little snafoo at the beginning of the trip with our van breaking down, but the Lord provided the knowledge and skill my hubby needed to get it fixed and we were good to go. It was a bit chilly with temps barely hitting the 70's, but I thought it was heavenly and the kids didn't seem to mind not sweating as they rode their bikes and played at the playground with new found friends. It was the perfect weather for a campfire! We had one at least twice a day (unless it rained). For Father's Day we bought hubby a grill thingamajig for grilling over the campfire so that's how we cooked our meals. We had hot dogs, hamburgers, pork loin, and a few other yummy recipes I'm going to share with you over the next two weeks.
The kind peeps at Gooseberry Patch have given me a copy of this fun Grilling and Campfire cookbook to give away! There are so many yummy recipes! I dog-eared so many pages of recipes I want to try in the next few weeks, too!
Today's recipe is
Skillet (Dutch Oven) Breakfast
1 lb. bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
32 - oz. package frozen diced potatoes
10-16 eggs, beaten (we used one dozen)
8 - oz. package shredded cheddar cheese
*we added 1 lb. of ground pork sausage, but you can skip the step if you like
(We also added a little hickory hamburger seasoning that we had on hand and that was yummy! You could just go with salt and pepper with a bit of onion powder.)
Cook bacon in large skillet or dutch oven over medium-hot campfire. With a slotted spoon, remove bacon to a plate and set aside leaving grease in the pan (we wrapped the cooked bacon in aluminum foil and sat it by the campfire to keep warm). Cook and brown the ground sausage removing the meat with a slotted spoon and cover to keep warm. Add potatoes, cover and cook until golden (cook about 3-4 minutes and then turn them over and cook another 3-4 minutes). Pour eggs over potato mixture and stir with a spatula until cooked to desired consistency. Stir in the bacon and the sausage and sprinkle with cheese. Remove skillet (or dutch oven) from the campfire and cover. Let stand until cheese is melted. Enjoy!
Starts today and ends Wednesday, July 16th at midnight (EST)
