Kidzworld Kitchen: Campfire Treats

Nothing feels like summer more than enjoying the great outdoors with a camping trip. There’s something awesome about leaving the phones and TV at home and spending time with friends and family around the campfire telling stories and enjoying good food. The tricky thing about camping food is finding things that taste great, require very little preparation and, most importantly, can be cooked over the grill or an open fire. Everyone brings the staples: wieners, marshmallows, steaks and burgers, but here are just a few ideas for special treats that are wrapped in foil (for breezy cleanup) and cooked right in your campfire. Treat everyone to fresh muffins in the morning, stuffed apples for dessert and banana boats for a late night treat to replace the been-there-done-that s’mores.  Enjoy your outdoor adventure!

Grilled Banana Boats

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 1/8 cup chocolate chips

  2. Stuff with chocolate chips and any other toppings
  3. Wrap banana in tin foil

This is going to sound completely cliche, but the best thing is to just be yourself. You'll make friends no problem. People can tell when you're being genuine or not, and they definitely appreciate you for who you are more than if you tried to be someone else. You got this, it'll be a fun and exciting experience. :)

On a typical day I wear a pair of ripped jeans and either a hoodie or jacket, and a snapback. The opposite would probably be a dress lmao.

I also love expensive clothing. Brand names are my thing. But I always shop either during sale times or at second hand stores. Sales are my best friend, honestly. It might be frustrating to wait, but it's worth it in the end. Shop only on sale racks in big stores, and scout out smaller second hand stores that often carry brand names, never worn, but for a cheaper price.
