Food Memory: Foil Campfire Dinners


Nothing feels quite so “whole” as putting a few chunks of burger meat, a strip of bacon, and a bunch of coarse-chopped veggies in a piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil and cooking them in hot coals by a fire. A little salt and pepper and then just letting everything cook together makes for a meal that is surprisingly harmonious, no matter what you happened to throw into the campfire dinner. It doesn’t hurt that the process of starting a fire, chopping veggies, setting up tents, and hiking around all day usually makes me more hungry than I ever am in regular life, so this food has a super-positive memory palette for me, more from the simplicity of a meal in the woods than from any one fancy ingredient.
