Heather’s Pinterest Camping Dining Guide!

Pinterest has kicked up…well, everything! Most recently I was searching for recipes for a camping trip and the next thing I knew I had a very elaborate plan that didn’t even mention hotdogs!  So if you’re looking to fancify your camping grub, here are some ideas. (Is ‘fancify’ a word? And more importantly, can you use it in a sentence with the word ‘grub’? Lol!)

Sweet Mama’s chicken:
I made the marinade in a big ziplock the day ahead and then on the morning we left, I added the chicken breasts, threw it in the cooler and it was ready to go on the grill that night.
Two words: YUM OOOOO!!!
Tip: I grilled double and used the leftover in a pasta salad the next day – or you could just eat it cold like my daughter did!

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 medium garlic cloves
  • 3 Tablespoons spicy brown mustard
  • 4 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and add raw chicken. This makes enough marinade for at least 10 pieces of chicken. Marinate overnight if possible. Grill to perfection.
  2. (The raw chicken can also be placed in a ziploc bag with the marinade and frozen as a freezer meal!) (recipe courtesy of the website bombshellbling)

Ham & Pineapple Kabobs:  I pre-measured the brown sugar and soy to make the marinade easier to transport.  I thought I made a ton but my family gobbled this up and left nothing but skewers on their plates! Here’s the address…

Two Words: I’m speechless!

Tip: Some lady on google said that if you use fresh pineapple, you have to soak it or some reaction will happen with your ham.  I know we’re not supposed to believe everything we read on the internet – but just to be safe – I used canned.
