April 2, 2015 – With spring in the air and summer fast approaching, outdoor activities are at the forefront of our minds. And what better way to spend time with family outdoors than with a fun-filled camping trip? Whether you’re headed to the woods or pitching a tent in the backyard, there are plenty of ways to make it memorable – starting with your fireside grub. Mason jars are a fun (and functional) way to pack your camping noshes.
Overnight Oats are a great Mason jar option when you’re on-the-go because there is NO cooking required! Before you head to bed, fill a Mason jar with equal parts Millville Old Fashioned Oats, milk and yogurt of your choice (we love to use Friendly Farms Almond Milk and Greek Yogurt!). Top it off with fruit and nuts for added flavor and keep cool overnight. Your oats will be conveniently – and deliciously – ready to eat by morning.
Grilled Chicken Rainbow Cobb Salad
Our Grilled Chicken Rainbow Cobb Salad from Amanda Rettke of I Am Baker is a perfect choice for a filling meal to keep you going all day long. Greens, fruit, veggies and proteins give this salad-in-a-jar a little touch of everything.
S’mores in a Jar
Don’t let a lack of fire keep you from this classic camping tradition! S’mores in a Jar is a great option for backyard or indoor camping when roasting marshmallows might not be an option. Mix graham cracker crumbs with melted butter and layer in a jar with chopped chocolate bar and marshmallows. Pop in the oven until chocolate is melted and enjoy this sweet, gooey treat with a spoon!
