Not Just for Camping

Foil DinnerFor the past several days, it has been 100 degrees here in Albuquerque. Just too hot to turn on the oven. I recently decided to have a “clean out the refrigerator” night, using the beets and some of the carrots in a foil dinner. Since we are not allowed to make a charcoal fire now because of the high fire danger, I cooked them right on the propane grill. You don’t need a recipe for a foil dinner. Just put everything you want in a square of foil, wrap it up, and cook. We had pretty big packets, so they took about 25 minutes. You do want to use some sort of liquid to keep everything from burning. I used a couple of tablespoons of olive oil, but have also used BBQ sauce, salad dressing (Italian is great!), and butter.

Happy eating!
