I am that mom who is always droning on about the benefits of getting the kids outside, to experience the grass between their toes, the leafy dappled sunlight, the song of the cicadas. (In fact, I drone on as long as the cicadas do, and just as loudly.) So every summer we set up a tent in our backyard, drag out some sleeping bags and…“bamp” out. We spot fireflies, play flashlight tag and grill up savory foil packets on our grill. In the foil-pack dinners here, you cook the rice or stuffing, veggies and protein at the same time in a no-mess packet. Try these, then get even more fired up with the rest of our favorite foil-pack ideas. Click here for the recipe: Foil-Pack Chicken Fajita Dinner
