    I dont know what you are talking about. I did not cook for her on our first date… I made her watch an R rated movie on the 1st date!

    My cooking was not till a month or so in… And I cooked well that day!

    This looks great for a camping idea, but a dutch oven will not fit in my oven in my camper, any suggestions on how long if I left it sitting on hot coals (I do this for a few other DO recipes) or, would it work in a crock pot? Sounds so good, i am going to try it for sure!! 🙂

      I (Erica) actually usually do it over hot coals! Just do exactly as the recipe says– just over coals. I haven’t tried it in a crock pot but I am sure it would be ok. My favorite way is to do it over coals (as pictured).. just heat up the coals until they turn gray. It should be hot enough to put the bacon in right then and there. Then just continue the recipe — just keep checking the potatoes every 10 min or so until they are done to your liking.

    So there’s just 3 of us camping. I don’t want leftovers if I can help it so I was wondering about making half this recipe in a cast iron skillet with a lid. Any thoughts on whether you think that might work?
