Wednesday Fun #36 - Campin' and Cook-outs

It's only 1 month until this year's Girls' Adventure Weekend, and the planning (yes, I'm doing some - really!) has got me thinking about camping food and its potentially large variety. So, our question this week is...

What the strangest / most unusual / most unexpected food you've ever had camping?

P.S. If you haven't RSVP'd about GAW, visit! If I've missed you, please please please let me know asap and I'll add you in ('cuz things like that can happen). And again, if the whole weekend won't work for you, you're more than welcome to come out just for a day, you know.

Chicken chow mein, and then a chocolate cake for dessert. Both were made over the fire (well the cake was buried over some hot coals) and to be fair, both were made at Campfire camp.
The most surprising thing was cucumbers, sliced and lightly salted in cold water. They made the best snack after a long hot hike, but it was something I never would have thought of packing.

I still loved the quesadillas from a GAW (AKJ and TSB, wasn't that you two?).

Also, my FIL makes "tacos in a bag" where you crunch up a snack size bag of Doritos, then open it and put in taco meat and fixings and eat with a fork. Yummy and fun.

But my favorite strange campfire food is banana boats: cut a long divot in an unpeeled banana (sort of like making it into a canoe), fill by alternating chocolate chips and mini-marshmallows, put the strip of peel back on, wrap in foil, then grill or cook in embers until the banana's cooked & the sweets are melty. Yum!
