Easy Mushrooms in Foil Recipe
Yield: 4-6 Servings (or 1-2 Servings for bus people)


1 pound sliced mushrooms, any type
5 cloves garlic, sliced
2 tablespoons butter, cut in pieces
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Place mushrooms, garlic and butter on a large piece of foil.
2. Wrap ingredients well and place on grill for about 10 - 15 minutes
(depending how hot the grill is and where they are placed), until mushrooms are tender.
3. Add salt and pepper to taste before serving.
4. This is good to grill along with steak at the same time or other food

For the DV run, I am thinking of all the healthy, lightweight foods I can take along to minimize junk food. I have a pretty good list so far, but am wondering if anyone else has ideas for a long (7-12 days) camping road trip? For instance both cow's milk & soy milk come in shelf-stable little 8 oz packs.

I was thinking about what I brought when I went to Maupin a couple of years ago. I brought along frozen stuff, and replenished the block 'o ice every couple of days. No "healthy, lightweight" food for me!

Sausages! Cheese! Chocolate!

I like to bring plain yogurt, delmonte sliced jar peaches and trader joes chocolate cereal . This always makes a good breakfast

I enjoy having the grill stove. I use it not just for grilling but for toasting bagels, beard, etc. If there is a griddle accessory, you may want that, too.

Jeff is referring to a separate outdoor grille. Now, those Condelli things are marvy for those of us with a Vanagon Westy stove and want to put the espresso pot onto the stove grate. Whole different issue! I think they are horribly overpriced.

We can live a whole weekend on one giant sub from safeway. Lots of good food, bread, cheeses, tomatoes, meats for $7
