    Those packets are a good way to use leftover potatoes from previous meals!

    Lemon slices with the fish is really nice ... and for me, more onion slices too!

    And now you have me drooling ... ane green with envy!
    What a GREAT idea! I hadn't thought about using the aluminum pans from pies and things. I'll be saving those now ! Thanks for the great tip.

    I think that's where I learned about them first. My mom was a girl scout leader so we went to camp every summer and had these. Maybe it was the air, but I swear those were the best meals ever.

The wetness of the paper provides some inner steaminess and when it's dry, the food is done.
    Yummy!
    Wow - great idea. I am so glad I posted this. GREAT tips! Thanks so much!

    We HAVE done these too. I learned how to make them back in Girl Scouts and we called them "Hobo dinners".
    We make them every year while we are up camping. LOVE IT...

    Plus they can do double duty as your serving dish or dinner plate!
