As a teenager, I spent most weekends at the beach, gathered around a bonfire with friends. The city where I now live does not allow fires on the beach, but my children still have memories of gathering around the fire, while camping or at the backyard fire pit. Food is almost always involved, and some of the best things we have ever eaten have been cooked over open flames.
This time I have put together a menu that can be cooked entirely over an open fire, where everything is prepared in advance. Prepping food before leaving the house means that you will have less gear to pack and more time to enjoy the great outdoors.
