RV Campfire Recipe

As the best in the Midwest, Pleasureland RV Center is the place to go for all things related to RVing. With an extensive inventory of new and used RVs, you’re sure to find the perfect size and style to fit your travel agenda from one of the four Pleasureland RV dealership Minnesota locations.

Once you’ve made your choice of RV and are out and about on an adventure, one activity you’ll want to experience is cooking over an open campfire. Cooking on a campfire has the aroma of coffee wafting through the fresh air at breakfast, the fragrance of savory chili bubbling over the rim of the kettle at lunch, or the sound of a juicy steak sizzling on the grill under the stars.

There are plenty of delicious recipes available that will keep the fire burning and the coals hot with a variety of breakfast, lunch, and dinner creations. For a quick recipe that can be enjoyed anytime, try making up your own signature kabobs.

For breakfast, using metal or wooden skewers, place brown and serve sausage, wedge of orange, pineapple chunk, slice of potato about 1/4-inch thick, and a section of seedless green pepper. Place kabobs on a hot grill for approximately 12 minutes or until meat is cook through. While the kabobs are grilling, baste with your favorite flavor of fruit preserves. Turn the kabobs periodically and continue to baste. Warm up the remaining preserves and serve as a side for dipping.

When lunch or dinnertime rolls around, meat, vegetable, seafood or a combination of ingredients make a delicious meal. Place chunks of beef, chicken, shrimp on the skewer along with button mushrooms, slices of green bell pepper and zucchini, and onion. Cut pieces large enough to stay securely on the skewer but not too thick. You want the kabobs to cook evenly so all items are finished at the same time. Add any seasonings. If cooking seafood only, baste with butter to keep food moist. Cooking time on a hot campfire grill is approximately 15 to 20 minutes.

Whether you’re ready to invest in a new or used RV, interested in Pleasureland’s RV rental option, in the market for parts and accessories, or you need to bring your RV in for service, experienced staff and expert service technicians are standing by.

Minnesota RVers: Remember To Thank A Veteran

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” -John Fitzgerald Kennedy

As we look ahead to Veteran’s Day on Sunday, November 11, let’s consider how best to observe this holiday so that we live up to its true meaning. How might you and your family celebrate Veteran’s Day, not only on the holiday itself, but all year long?  We have an opportunity to honor and support our veterans, both active and civilian, and here are some ways those of us in the RV community can get involved:

Say “Thank You”

Simply thank the veterans in your life and your community, with words or even with a handshake or a hug. We find veterans among our fellow RV campers at almost every stop. Another simple yet profound way to thank our service men and women is through Shutterfly’s Thank the Troops Campaign. Shutterfly’s Facebook App lets you send a free thank you card to service members overseas and in VA hospitals. You can also send a care package to troops, and there are a number of organizations who help make this easy. Google “send a care package to troops” to get a comprehensive list.

Take part in a local Veteran’s Day observance or ceremony

From parades, to moments of silence, to terrific deals especially for vets, there are a ton of fun and meaningful events for the whole family. It’s also a great chance for you to show your spirit with your favorite patriotic clothing or gear for your RV!

 

  • Check out the list of events happening all over the state, from Apple Valley to White Bear
  • Don’t forget about fitness! St. Paul is hosting the second annual 5K to honor military service around beautiful Como Lake on November 11
  • There are special deals from local and national businesses all over the state for vets and their families
  • Vetfriends.com is always a great place to start to find local events and all things military

Support military charities or service organizations that directly support the military

From clothing to educational opportunities to mental health services, there are a wealth of opportunities to help make a difference in the lives of active and civilian military personnel. Reconnect America is a great place to get started and learn more.

To all of Minnesota’s veterans: Thank you!
