I wanted us to have a great meal every night we were there. I carefully planned everything out weeks in advance, so it would be perfect and I must admit, it was! Even our first rainy night supper of hot dogs and Kraft Dinner Deluxe was wonderful! In my trusty cast iron pan out on that campfire, I pulled off some great tasting stuff! One night, we had sauteed onions, garlic, mixed peppers and mushrooms, with hot Italian sausages. We enjoyed it with toasty garlic bread and a green salad. Another night I made us burgers (my 'Basic Burger Mix' (with old Cheddar), found on my 'Recipes' page), with sauteed onions and mushrooms, accompanied by potato chips and dip. The last night we were at Grundy, I made us the show stopper! Steaks, from Kev's fave butcher shop, pan seared, topped with a skewer of campfire grilled shrimp, bruschetta (from my 'Recipes' page) and sweet potatoes wrapped in foil and roasted in the hot coals. I told you it was the show stopper! It was delicious! We washed down dinner with a bottle of yummy red wine and enjoyed every last sip. After dinner, we sat at the campfire for hours and watched the stars, while the loons sang us their haunting song from down on Grundy Lake.
