Smores in the back yard, the car, or on the ironing board

Camping out in your own back yard? Yup. You’re encouraged to do it along with hundreds of other families on June 26. It’s the “Great American Backyard Campout.” (Register at www.greatamericanbackyardcampout.org) The best part about this is that your camp out meal can be pretty easy. After all, the house and your kitchen are just seconds away.


To make things fun, you’ll want to cook something on the grill. Make your own homemade barbecue sauce, and use it on brined chicken that you’ve soaked overnight. Serve side dishes like carrot and cabbage coleslaw, and roasted vegetables.


Then, the campfire portion of the evening is the best. If you don’t have a fire-pit, just use the hot coals of your grill to make smores. Smores, of course, are the most sticky, gooey fun of all. Our local Hershey chocolate company is partnering with the campout people to encourage camping and smore making. They’ll give you a dollar off coupon for a six-pack of Hersheys chocolate bars if you register for the campout. Go to www.puresmores.com for details.


Here are ways to make smores other than over a campfire. In case your campout gets rained out, or if you just like weird experimentation, try these alternative smoring methods. Here are a few:

    The ironing board is funny. Saw a commercial where someone was heating a waffle that way. Smores are so much fun to make, easy and the kids love them especially when camping or with the boy and girl scouts.
