Crock Pot HOBO Dinner Deliciousness!

What can be bought in many sizes, has the ability to save time in the kitchen, and makes clean up a breeze while providing a balanced meal in just one pot?  Why, the Crock Pot of course!

I’m a firm believer in easy prep, easy clean-up, set it and do something else while your dinner (or dessert) is cooking.  You’ll thank yourself later when you come back to your camper after a day of hiking, fishing or doing whatever it is you do.

After cleaning everyone up, doggie included, why don’t you sit down to a nice, warm plate of what I like to call “lazy Hobo dinner.”  Campers, you recognize the reference as the traditional foil dinner or hobo dinner I’m sure, but alas, put it all in the crock pot sans foil and no hot coals needed!

When only Kyle and me are on the open road, I bring the 2 quart crock pot I got at Amazon but when Jon or the adult boys go with, well, then it’s bring the big granddaddy one or starve!
