Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Foil Dinner

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, thawed – I cut mine into bite sized pieces because they cook better and who wants to dirty extra knifes while camping.

1 package Stuffing mix

1 1/4 cup water

fresh broccoli, washed and cut into bite sized pieces

1 cup cheddar cheese, grated

6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

5 Tbsp Ranch dressing

Lay foil out on counter. I do all of mine at once, its like one big assembly line. Spray with nonstick cooking spray (which I never remember to do, so don’t sweat it if you forget). Mix stuffing and water and then divide onto foil. Add chicken and broccoli pieces over stuffing. Then sprinkle the bacon crumbles. Then top with the cheese. Lastly, pour 1 Tbsp of Ranch over the top. Seal dinner up.

Blueberry Breakfast Cake with a hint of lemon

I found this recipe here. I made a few mistakes and changes from their recipe but it came out perfect for us!

½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
zest from 1 large lemon
3/4 c
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
2 cups fresh blueberries
1 cup buttermilk (I juiced the lemon first and then filled it to the cup mark.

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Cream butter with lemon zest and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Then whisk together the remaining flour, baking powder and salt.

Add the flour mixture to the batter a little at a time, alternating with the buttermilk. Fold in the blueberries.

Place in greased 9x9 pan and bake for 45 minutes.
