He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young

{Camp Potatoes}

I assume I call them camp potatoes because they're easily made over a fire but to be honest, this is a recipe from mom so she may have just made it up...
No matter what you call them, they're a fantastic recipe for hot days when turning the oven on just seems silly.

What You'll Need: 
This recipe is a bit subjective based on the number of mouths your feeding but for the four healthy appetites in our house, this is what we use...
2-3 medium sized *organic potatoes, scrubbed and sliced thin
1 small onion, diced
3 T butter
herbs of choice {optional}
*If not using organic potatoes, peel them first. Potato skins are sprayed to prevent sprouting so it's best to do without the peels if you aren't using organic.

What To Do:
Cut yourself two sheets of aluminum foil about 18" long a piece.
Pile the potatoes into the center of one piece of foil, sprinkle with onion, dot with butter, add salt and pepper and close up the foil around it all making a ball.
Wrap your second piece of foil over the top of the ball you just created.
Place directly onto heated grill set at medium heat for 30 minutes. {Flip halfway through cooking.}
What's even better?... Lay the foil packet on a plate to serve, toss the foil, put the plate away clean.
