Make the centerpiece of your meal something rustic and primal, like these spice-rubbed rib eye steaks. Charred peppers and a bright, zesty chimichurri sauce are the perfect accompaniments. On the side, serve grilled skewers of marinated summer vegetables, threaded on sprigs of rosemary for extra flavor, along with simple potatoes.

 

For dessert, take a childhood favorite to new levels with our homemade s’mores, which feature graham crackers made from scratch. Crunchy on the outside and slightly chewy on the inside, they’ll make toasty marshmallows and dark, velvety chocolate shine.

  • Just before serving: Finish the potatoes and grill the vegetables. Sear the steaks. Roast the marshmallows and finish the s’mores.

 

Party Planner: Summer Campfire FeastA cast-iron pan is your best friend for campsite cooking; it can go directly on the fire, on a hot grill, or on a portable stove. Plus, it’s easy to serve from! We also love this camping tripod, which can be used to hang a pot over your fire for even, hands-off cooking.

 

Just because you’re camping doesn’t mean you can’t have a special, sit-down dinner! Pack a roll-up picnic table, shatterproof, heatproof dinnerware, and durable wineglasses for a meal that’s easy and practical but still celebratory.

 

After dinner, cozy up to a campfire in comfortable rocking chairs. Sit back, toast some marshmallows, and relax under the stars.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way
    of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
