Tempt my Tummy Tuesday.

Camp Kabobs

Camp Kabobs are easy and mess free. The kids like eating them too, because they're fun to eat. Bake potatoes directly in the fire, add some bread and you've got a meal.

Campfire Corn on the Cob

 It is so easy and the corn will be really tender. It is a cheap and easy side dish for a campfire meal.

1 bag frozen corn on the cob
Toni's Cajun Spices
salt and pepper, to taste
Place individual ears of corn, still frozen, on a piece of heavy aluminum foil. Top with Toni's, salt and pepper, and a pat of butter. Wrap each ear of corn with foil and twist the ends.

Meet me Monday!!

1. What is your favorite thing about summertime?
The late night light, camping, roasting marshmellows, Watching Big Brother, swimming, laying in my back yard and reading a good book, BBQ's, pedi's, birthday cake, starting Christmas shopping and crafting, family time, my yard and garden, trips to the beach, collecting sea glass. Now if us in Washington could just get some darn Sun I would be so happy!

2. What is your ideal retirement location (if money didn’t matter)?
I would have to say that I would want a cabin at the Ocean near Cannon Beach. I would also have a house September thru May down in AZ/NV/ Or in Palm Springs or San Diego. But for sure somewhere near my parents so I can take care of them. 

3. Do you live in the same town you grew up in?
Not in the same town but in the same county. I have always wanted to have a new life somewhere else but I am such a family person that I can't ever see myself leave until my family is smaller.

4. What nervous habit did you have as a child that you kicked to the curb before becoming an adult?
Biting my fingernails but I still have to bite them all off if I break one. Yes bite them off. I dont’ know why. Probably some deep seated stress?
5. What is the one era would you want to be a part of?
You mean I have to pick one? I don’t know, I would have to say I would love to have lived in the 1930's and I would love to have lived in the Tudor years. I think that I would have been a Queen!
