camping omelets

When we go camping with friends, we take turns making breakfast.  Instead of dirtying up the electric skillet making pancakes, we have a new favorite thing to fix.  Omelets in a baggie!  It's quick, fun and oh so yummy!
- quart size ziplock FREEZER baggies
- 2 eggs per person
- omelet fixings like bacon, ham, sausage, cheese, potatoes, peppers or jalepenos

Have everyone get their own baggie and fill with 2 eggs and desired fixings.  Squish together with your fingers through the baggie to mix it all up.  Label the baggies with a Sharpie so you know which one is which.  Make sure all the air is out of the baggie and seal up.  Put in a pot of boiling water for 13 minutes. When it's done, it slides out of the baggie as a perfect omelet.  Yum!

crockpot shredded chicken

For yummy shredded chicken, all you have to do is dump the following in a crockpot for 6 to 8 hours:

3 to 6 chicken breasts
1/2 to 1 packet taco seasoning
1/2 to 1 cup of salsa (like my precise measurements?)

That's it! The chicken literally falls apart and becomes perfectly seasoned.  You can put it in tacos, enchiladas, nachos, quesadillas or whatever you can think of.  It's a great go to meal when you can't think of anything else to make! Enjoy!
