This feature focuses on a recipe many people call ‘the hobo meal’

1-campfire dinner

things you’ll need:


-peppers, onions, mushrooms, potatoes, smoked sausage (and really any other vegetable you’d like)

-aluminum foil

-olive oil, salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, garlic

-knives + forks

01-'how-to' moakler-20 13-5instructions:

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.

In the quest to live a simple life… you also want to do things you have never done before or in a really long time.  We live in a great Province that allows us to simply pack up the car and head north in the search for old dirt roads we have not traveled and countrysides that we have not explored.

1-1-IMG_2975If you see an old barn in a field and you think that you can sneak across a field to it without being seen… do it.  Bring wine and your blanket.  Hell you can even put down the blanket anywhere if your out of the way and hang out.


If you come across a place where the (x) is located on the map above… then park in the car east of the beach and walk down.  Hang out till it gets dark and just enjoy the wine till it’s pitch black.  Wear what you want… it does not matter.  Just don’t splash around too much for someone to call the OPP.  Great thing about that beach is that you can walk out so far and it’s shallow…


tumblr_mucouhQnU01qeqfrto1_500Just have fun.  It’s much better to get outside and enjoy the warm summer nights.  Laugh.  Play.  Explore.

Just get out of your comfort zone.  This summer will be fun.
