Kids are always hungry and they don’t know care that while camping moms do not have access to quick cook foods or a microwave. Yet some how the thought of feeding them only junk food for your camping trip is appealing for convenience but it is not the best option for long term health habits. You can create a quick lunch that they will love and you will feel content to serve them with this great recipe.

I recommend not leaving them unattended because cooking too long will result in them burning. While my son was willing to sit and watch them my daughter chose to relax and chill out instead.
