Foil Apple Crisp

I’m still using our old Weber grill to make dinner. I love making “foil dinners.”


I tried making an apple crisp. 

Three apples. Oatmeal, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, brown sugar. Wrap in foil, place on grill for 20 minutes. Don’t forget the vanilla ice cream like I did!!!!!

Hobo Dinner 

Since he has dragged out the old Weber grill from the shed I decided I should put it to good use. It’s been really hot & humid outside. Too hot to heat up the kitchen, so I’m learning to use the old fashion (charcoal) grill again. Scanning the net for grilling out recipes I came across one that looked pretty easy to make. 

I cheated. Instead of using foil to wrap the entire meal I used a round foil tray from the dollar store. Tossed in some hamburger patties (left from yesterday, uncooked) added some carrots, potatoes and an ear of corn (lots of butter!) seasonings. Covered it up and placed on the grill. Wasn’t sure how long to leave it on, I gave it 45 minutes. Probably could have taken it off in 20-30 minutes. 

I was impressed with myself. It really tasted great!

So, the other night I was strolling through some of my Pinterest’s friends boards and I stumbled on some pictures of a recipe called “Banana Pudding Cake.”

It looked easy enough. I figured it was nothing fancy and I had the ingredients in the house any way. Oh I did go and buy a box of Nilla Waters.

So simple….bake the yellow cake mix according to the box. Let it cool, poke holes in the top of the cake. Mix pudding and pour into top of cake. Place in frig for a few minutes. Then take out spread Cool Whip on top of pudding & cake.  Add fresh bananas, crumbled Nilla Waters on top. Decorate it how you want to. There are no rules. It was so delicious, I was really impressed!
