1-campfire dinner

first, get a great fire going- the more coals the better.

then chop all of the vegetables + sausage & place on aluminum foil.  drizzle with oil + seasonings to taste.

bunch aluminum foil up into a big ball (I typically wrap an extra layer around the aluminum so nothing leaks out)

lay in the fire & let cook for around 15 minutes, depending on how hot your fire is (often I’ll rotate it halfway through to make sure everything is cooking fairly evenly)

while you’re waiting for that to cook, keep warm with some coffee + bourbon cream.

I think it’s important to get outside with someone that you care about and explore.  Simple things.  A hike or a walk in a forest and why not pack a little lunch.  In this example… just packing some things in a car and visit a Provincial Park and day-camp and hang out for the day would be nice.  It’s easy to pack a cooler with some goodies to cook up.  Bring some cooked chicken in marinade and throw that in a another pouch.
