Three of my trail riding buddies and I are going on a primitive camping trip on December 16-18 in the Brazos Bend Park which is southwest of Houston, TX. There is a camping site that has water for the horses and that is it. No electric in this area and I believe there are some bathrooms but no hook ups etc. No corrals so we are looking at purchasing a portable corral system. You can haul in a generator but must be off by 10:00 PM.
So...we had talked about a crock pot (LOL forgot about no electric) and that was scrapped. Lee Ann said "Denise, you are getting a NEW crockpot!" I said I could get another and she said "No....Doug (her hubby) is going to get us a Dutch Oven to cook in!" So we are discussing recipes for the Dutch Oven and she wants to try a cobber. We are going to make Chili for one night and my Italian Chicken Soup for another. Johnny Cakes and baked potatoes to throw in the fire should round everything out. My darling Uncle Dee taught us to make Johnny Cakes in the fire when I was a kid. We are so looking forward to our trip - the park is gorgeous. Lee Ann went and scouted it out last weekend so we are raring to go!!
Nokota, I am going to do my best to become a decent Dutch Oven cook - I am a pretty darn good cook on a grill or stove so this is just a new challenge. Hoping it isn't too cold - you never know in southeast Texas in the winter - could be warm...could be freezing!
